# Calculation of Shuttering of Footing

Shuttering is Calculated in square meter or square feet.

#### Use of Shuttering

1. To prevent the loss and segregation to freshly mixed concrete
2. To give a specific shape to concrete

#### Example:

Lets take a rectangle footing of size 3.00 X 5.00 m and Depth of 0.50 m

Calculation

• All side of footing which is covered with shuttering
• Two short side = 2 x 3.00 x 0.50 = 3.00 m2
• Two long side = 2 x 5.00 x 0.50 = 5.00 m2
• Total Shuttering area = 8.00 m2

# Calculation of Concrete Quantity of Footing

Concrete Quantity is Calculated in cubic meter or cubic feet.

#### Example:

Lets take a rectangle footing of size 3.00 X 5.00 m and Depth of 0.50 m

Calculation

• Total volume of Cuboid is the Final Quantity of Concrete = 3.00 X 5.00 x 0.50 m
• Total Concrete Quantity = 7.50 m3
