In this construction video tutorial, S.L. Khan, the renowned engineer, makes brief discussion on how to compute the materials for topping, under layer and base layer of a mosaic floor.

Mosaic floor stands for the top portion of a floor that is developed with mosaic materials. Mosaic materials are formed by mixing stone chips, white cement and marble powder.

To clear your conception, both the problem and solution are given in this video.

Example: Workout the necessary materials toward a mosaic floor which top layer is made of mosaic materials having depth 5 cm. The under layer of the floor is 10 cm and it is constructed with concrete in the ratio of 1:3:6. The sub base of the floor is 10 cm and it is constructed with brick ballast. The total area of the floor is 20 x 20 m.

Now calculate the quantities of the following materials for this mosaic floor :-

Brick Ballast (In sub base), Grey Cement, White Cement, Sand (Fine Aggregates), Crushed Stone (Course Aggregates), Marble Powder, Marble Chips

Initially, you have to make calculation for the following three heads :-

1) Brick ballast in sub base

Total floor area x thickness = 20 x 20 x 0.10 (10 cm = 0.10m) = 40 m3

2) Concrete in under layer (1:3:6)

Total floor area x thickness = 20 x 20 x 0.10 = 40 m3

3) Volume of mosaic topping

Total floor area x thickness = 20 x 20 x 0.05 (5 cm = 0.05 m) = 20 m3

Now, on the basis of the above figure, you have to calculate the quantities of the above mentioned materials. To learn the calculation process, go through the following video tutorial.
