### Solid concrete block sizes.

The actual (or basic) size of the block is 0.375 inches ( 3/8") or 10 mm lesser than the nominal (or modular) size of the block.

Given below are the different nominal sizes of solid concrete blocks in the Indian market.

 Sl.No. Nominal size in inches W × H × L Nominal size in mm.   W × H × L 1. 4” × 8” × 16” 100 × 200 × 400 2. 6” × 8” × 16” 150 ×  200 × 400 3. 8” × 8” × 16” 200 ×  200 × 400 4. 4” × 8” × 12” 100 × 200 × 300 5. 6” × 8” × 12” 150 × 200 × 300 6. 8” × 8” × 12” 200 × 200 × 300 7. 4” × 3” × 9” 100 × 75  × 230 8. 4” × 6” × 9” 100 × 150 × 230 9. 4” × 6” × 12” 100 × 150 × 300

For your reference, the actual and the nominal size of the block for the Sl. No. 1. is given below.

 Sl.No. Nominal size in inches Actual size in inches Nominal size in mm. Actual size in mm. 1. 4”× 8” × 16” 35/8”× 75/8”× 155/8” 100 × 200 × 400 90×190×390

Similarly, you can calculate the actual sizes of the other blocks.

### Weight in kg. & pounds of solid concrete blocks.

The density of the solid concrete blocks varies from 2100 kg/cu.m  to 2400 kg/cu.m depending upon the raw material & machinery used in the manufacturing process. For the calculation of the weight of the solid concrete block, I have considered the density of  2350 kg/cu.m. (preferred)

Given below are the weight of the concrete blocks of various sizes.

 Sl.No. Actual size in mm. Weight in kgs. Weight in US pounds 1. 90 ×190 ×390 15.65 kg. 34.50 lb. 2. 140 ×190 ×390 24.35 kg. 53.65 lb. 3. 190 ×190 ×390 33.00 kg. 72.75 lb. 4. 90 ×190 ×290 11.65 kg. 25.70 lb. 5. 140 ×190 ×290 18.10 kg. 39,90 lb. 6. 190 ×190 ×290 24.60 kg. 54.20 lb. 7. 90 ×  65 ×220 3.02 kg 6.65 lb. 8. 90 ×140 ×220 6.50 kg. 14.30 lb. 9. 90 ×140 ×290 8.60 kg. 18.95 lb.

### Solid concrete block price.

The cost of the concrete block depends upon the material proportion, regional raw material cost, regional labor cost, size, quality, and manufacturing process.

Given below is the average price list of the solid concrete blocks in the Indian market.

 Sl.No. Nominal size in inches W × H × L Nominal size in mm.   W × H × L Average price in INR/ No. 1. 4” × 8” × 16” 100 × 200 × 400 Rs 25/- No. 2. 6” × 8” × 16” 150 ×  200 × 400 Rs 34/- No. 3. 8” × 8” × 16” 200 ×  200 × 400 Rs 42/- No. 4. 4” × 8” × 12” 100 × 200 × 300 Rs 20/- No 5. 6” × 8” × 12” 150 × 200 × 300 Rs 26/- No 6. 8” × 8” × 12” 200 × 200 × 300 Rs 32/- No 7. 4” × 3” × 9” 100 × 75  × 230 Rs   5/- No 8. 4” × 6” × 9” 100 × 150 × 230 Rs   9/- No 9. 4” × 6” × 12” 100 × 150 × 300 Rs 13/- No
