The estimation of the quantity of cement required to install the floor tile can be calculated by fixing the following data:

- The Mix ratio of the Cement Mortar
- The thickness of the Mortar Layer
- The Area of the Floor to Install the Tile

Let us explain this problem with a simple
Example

Consider the given details:

1. Area of Floor Tiling = 100Sq.ft

2. The Mortar Mix Ratio = 1:3

3. The Thickness of Mortar Layer =
1.5inches = 1.5/12 ft = 0.125ft

The steps involved are:

Wet Volume VwÂ Â Â Â Â Â = Area of Floor Tiling x Thickness of Mortar

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â =
100 x 0.125

VwÂ Â Â Â Â Â =
12.5 Cubic. Feet

Dry Volume of Cement Mortar (Vd)=Â 33% increase in Wet Volume

VdÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â =
Vw + 33% (Vw)

VdÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â =
1.33Vw

VdÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â =
1.33 x 12.5

VdÂ Â Â Â Â Â =
16.625 Cubic Feet

The mix ratio Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â = Cement: Sand = 1:3

Sum of proportion Â = 1+3 = 4

Then,

Volume of CementÂ =[Â¼] x 16.625 = 4.16 Cubic Feet

Provide 20% extra for adhesion and
coating properties.

Then,

20% extra cement = 0.20 x 4.16 = 0.832Cubic
Feet

Then, the total volume of cement = 4.16
+ 0.832 = 4.99Cubic Feet

1 bag of cement =Â 1.226 Cubic Feet

No: of bags for 4.99 Cubic Feet =
4.99/1.226 = 4 Nos

The no: of bags of cement required for 100Sq.ft floor tiling = 4 Number
