The **Custom Stone in a Wall** calculator computes the number of bricks, blocks or uniformly cut stone needed for a wall based on the dimensions of the wall, the length and height (face) of the stone, brick or block and the thickness of the mortar joints.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and the following:

- (
**L**) Wall Length - (
**H**) Wall Height - (
**SH**) Stone Height - (
**SL**) Stone Length - (
**mj**) Mortar Joint thickness. In the U.S., it's often 3/8" and 10mm in Europe.

**Number of Stone (nS):** The calculator returns the number of masonry units (e.g., cut stone) needed for the wall. It also returns:

- (
**nS**) Number of Cut (Total) - (
**nR**) Number of Rows to achieve wall height - (
**nSPR**) Number of Stones per Row to achieve wall length - (
**TR)**Height or Thickness of Top Row to get exact height (H) of wall with standard row heights below. - (
**A**) Wall Face Area

The** Variable Sized (brick, block or stone) **equation calculates the number of brick, block or cut stone needed for a wall based on the dimensions of the wall and the size of the brick, cut stone or block. This calculation is for a wall or fascia wall which implies that wall is one unit (brick, block or stone) deep. The user identifies the height and length of the wall and enters the dimensions of the masonry unit. vCalc will then calculate the number of units needed for the wall. The graphic shows a straight wall. However, the length can be provided for a circular or other-wised curved or serpentine wall, and the calculation should be accurate.

To do this, vCalc calculates the area of a wall and then uses the dimensions of brick, block or stone to determine how many units are needed for the construction of the wall. This is an ESTIMATION, and actual number of units needed may vary based on the thickness of the mortar joints and other factors. Nonetheless, this formula does take into account a nominal mortar joint.

Brick, block and cut stone walls are used in many applications, ancient to modern. They can be found in homes, building, and gardens. They can also be seen in general landscaping as retention walls.

The MASONRY suite includes collections of functions associated with product estimations on projects done with brick, block, concrete and rebar.

The following functions apply to estimating the amount of concrete, rebar, form boards and water needed for concrete slabs of different shapes: rectangular with squared corners, circular including semi-circle, and polygon shapes from triangular up (e.g., pentagon for 5 sides and dodecagon for 12 sided polygon).

**Rebar and Concrete in a Slab**: Computes the total length and weight of rebar and the volume and weight of concrete needed for a rectangular slab, taking into account the concrete displaced by the rebar.**Concrete in Rectangle Slab**: Computes the volume of concrete in a rectangle (squared corners) slab based on the dimensions. It includes the volume of concrete in cubic yards and the equivalent volume in bags of concrete. It also includes the surface area, length of form boards, and the water requirement.**Slab Weight**: Computes the weight, volume of concrete and surface area of a rectangle slab based on the length, width and depth of the concrete of the slab and the density of concrete.**Weight of Slab with Rebar**: Computes the weight of a rectangle slab with rebar based on the length, width and depth of the concrete of the slab, the density of concrete and the size and spacing of rebar. It includes total weight (concrete and rebar), and the contribution of weight from rebar and concrete separately.**Slab Area and Perimeter**: Compute the surface area and perimeter of a rectangular slab based on the dimensions.

**Volume of Circular Slab:**Computes the slab surface area, perimeter and cubic yards of concrete in a circular slab based on the diameter and depth. It also provides, the equivalent volume in 80lb, 60lb and 40lb bags of concrete and the water requirement.**Circular Slab Weight**: This computes the weight of the concrete in a circular slab based on the diameter, depth and density of concrete.**Rebar and Concrete in a Circular Slab**: This computes the length and weight of rebar in a rectangular slab. It also computes the total weight of the slab including concrete, taking into account the concrete displaced by rebar.**Semi-Circle Slab Volume**: Computes the volume of concrete needed for a semi-circular slab based on the radius and depth.**Semi-Circle Slab Weight**: Computes the weight of concrete in a semi-circular slab based on the radius, depth and density of concrete.
