# Description

This calculator is designed to give an approximate quantity for all materials needed for a drop ceiling installation.

A dropped ceiling is often a secondary ceiling, hung below the main (structural) ceiling. It may also be referred to as a drop ceiling, T-bar ceiling, false ceiling, or suspended ceiling, and is a staple of modern construction and architecture.

## Soil Volume Calculator

Good soil is the single most important ingredient for a good garden. Raised beds give you an immediate advantage over a regular garden, because when you fill your raised bed, you can fill it with a blend of soil that's superior to the native soil in your yard. Soil that's loose and rich with nutrients and organic matter will allow the roots of your plants to grow freely, and ensure that they have access to the water and nutrients they need to sustain healthy growth.

Calculate Soil Volume in Raised Beds.If you have several raised beds, it makes sense to order your soil in bulk. Some garden centers even offer soil blends that are made specifically use in raised beds.Soil Calculator will help you to estimate your cubic yard requirements.

## Stone Estimation Calculator

Stone Estimation Calculator is an online tool for area and volume calculation programmed to estimate how many stones are required for the given building measurements of width, length and height.

This Stone Estimation Calculator uses two different converter functions in order to generate the Output in different units such as Inches and Feet. When it comes to building construction one should estimate the stone requirement according to the proposed building size

## Back Fill Calculator

Backfill is used to replace soil or dirt that was excavated from the ground. This can include a garden site for raised beds or material to place behind a retaining wall. Typically when calculating backfill, the material will not include any large rocks or forms of vegetation. Most importantly, backfill should never include any wood debris as this material will decay and cause underground voids. The voids can eventually collapse and create a depression in the middle of the fill area. Backfill is generally calculated in the form of volume in cubic feet or cubic yards.

Backfill is usually sold by the cubic foot or cubic yard

## Insulation Calculator

Thermal insulation in buildings is an important factor to achieving thermal comfort for its occupants. Insulation reduces unwanted heat loss or gain and can decrease the energy demands of heating and cooling systems. It does not necessarily deal with issues of adequate ventilation and may or may not affect the level of sound insulation. In a narrow sense insulation can just refer to the insulation materials employed to slow heat loss, such as: cellulose, glass wool, rock wool, polystyrene, urethane foam, vermiculite, perlite, wood fibre, plant fibre (cannabis, flax, cotton, cork, etc.), plant straw, animal fibre (sheep's wool), cement, and earth or soil, but it can also involve a range of designs and techniques to address the main modes of heat transfer - conduction, radiation and convection materials.

How much insulation a house should have depends on building design, climate, energy costs, budget, and personal preference. Regional climates make for different requirements. Building codes specify only the bare minimum; insulating beyond what the code requires is often recommended.

Enter the dimensions of the area to be insulated. Click on "Calculate" to determine how many square feet of insulation are needed.

## Square Footage Calculator

The Square Footage Cost Calculator is a great way to determine just how much a new floor will cost you in your home renovation budget, and it’s a great way to start a conversation about how to reign in that cost and bring it more in line with the amount you had hoped to spend. Remember to measure accurately, and include fees such as labor costs, and the Square Footage Cost Calculator will be your greatest home renovation asset.

## Retaining Wall Calculator

Retaining walls are structures designed to restrain soil to unnatural slopes. They are used to bound soils between two different elevations often in areas of terrain possessing undesirable slopes or in areas where the landscape needs to be shaped severely and engineered for more specific purposes like hillside farming or roadway overpasses.

A retaining wall is a structure designed and constructed to resist the lateral pressure of soil when there is a desired change in ground elevation that exceeds the angle of repose of the soil.

When building a retaining wall, you need to estimate the number of stone blocks, capstones, and cubic yards of gravel needed to complete the project. Getting an accurate landscaping estimate will help you plan for the cost of materials and labor to build a retaining wall.

## Backfill Trench Calculator

In construction, there are many methods to accomplish the same result. The main requirement is that the work is done according to the specification written for that particular project. When it comes to trench Backfill, the specification usually allows the contractors several choices for filling the area over the pipe and under the pavement. But those of us working in the field long enough have probably come to prefer one over the other. Filling a trench in an efficient way requires knowledge of the volume of material needed.

Giving inputs as length,width,depth and diameter of wire/cylinder

outputs volume of trench,and volume of Backfill needed to it.
