Answer:

Wow, 18 square feet is NOT the same as 18X18 as some previous answerers have offered. 18 square feet might be 9 ft x 2 ft or 3ft x 6ft, etc. - doesn't matter - the point is that the length and width have already been multiplied together.

You only need to multiply 18 by the depth to get cubic feet. (volume = L x W x D#

The depth is given in inches so it is actually 2/12 of a foot #0.1666 ft).

The depth is given in inches so it is actually 2/12 of a foot #0.1666 ft).

18 x 0.1666 = 3 cubic feet

Each bag of concrete fills 0.6 cubic feet so just divide 3 by 0.6 = 5 bags.

Answer:

The formula for cubic feet is (length x width x height)

you have (length x width) 18 square feet

The formula for cubic feet is (length x width x height)

you have (length x width) 18 square feet

18 square feet x .166 = 2.98 cubic feet (converted 2 inch to .166) 1 inch converted is .083

2.98 cubic feet divided by .66 = 4.5 bags (if 1 bag = .66 cubic feet)

Answer:

90 BAGS

18 feet X 18 feet X 2 inches thick = 54 cubic feet

1 yard = 27 cubic feet

54 divided by 27 = 2 yards

45 bags per CUBIC yard

2 yds X 45 bags = 90 bags

1 bag = .6 cu ft

90 bags X .6 = 54 cubic feet

1 yard = 27 cubic feet

54 divided by 27 = 2 yards

45 bags per CUBIC yard

2 yds X 45 bags = 90 bags

1 bag = .6 cu ft

90 bags X .6 = 54 cubic feet

Answer:

One 80 lb. bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix yields approximately 0.6 cubic feet when placed. If the hole has dimensions of 18 feet x 18 feet x 2 inches, the volume to be filled is ~54 cubic feet, and approximately ninety 80 lb. bags will be required to fill it. If the hole has dimensions of 3 feet x 6 feet x 2 inches, totaling 18 square feet x 2 inches, the volume to be filled is ~3 cubic feet, and

An 80 lb bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix yields 0.6 cubic feet of concrete. A floor that is 8 ft x 20 ft x 0.42 ft (5 inches) will require 66 2/3 cubic feet of concrete, or 111.1 bags (of 80 lb each).

An 80 lb bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix yields 0.6 cubic feet of concrete. A floor that is 8 ft x 20 ft x 0.42 ft (5 inches) will require 66 2/3 cubic feet of concrete, or 111.1 bags (of 80 lb each). Yields will vary based upon waste, uneven subgrade, etc. For a project of this size, it is crucial that you have sufficient equipment and man power to either allow you to pour the entire application before any of the material has set, OR pour sections that are separated by expansion joints before any of the material in that section has set. If some of the material sets before subsequent bags are poured, a cold joint will form. A cold joint is caused by the inability of the product to intermix between bags, and prevents the application from being a single, solid mass. A cold joint may cause problems ranging from a simple aesthetic issue, to as serious as potentially allowing for water intrusion into the cold joint, which may eventually lead to concrete degradation. Be sure to check local building codes to ensure compliance.

is it 4000 PSI?

January 4, 2013

Answer:

Yes. QUIKRETE Concrete Mix #1101 exceeds the compressive strength requirements for normal strength concrete as described in ASTM C 387. When tested under standard laboratory conditions in accordance with that specification, it will achieve or exceed a compressive strength of 2,500 PSI in 7 days and 3,500 PSI in 28 days, with a typical 28 day value being 4,000 PSI.

Answer:

Yes according to the Quickrete website

This stuff is in most cases 92% gravel, 7% sand, and 1% cement. I could not even doctor this garbage to make it good. There is no consistency from one bag to the next. I had one good bag out of eight 7 got used to fill a big hole in back of house so I got some use out of it. I returned the other 8 bags. Mix your own these people do not know what concrete is. I could not even recommend this for posts. I gave it one star for teaching me a lesson.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kasey Inconsistent
I had previously used the Sacrete brand, but ran out before the project was complete and bought this instead to finish. In the ten bags I used, four of them seemed to be missing much of the cement from the mix. Dry it looked very rocky, and when mixed they had a very runny grey watery consistency that ran right through the rock. Filling the voids in my driveway, it just got worse. It was just pushing wet gravel around with some grey soup in the bottom of the hole. Not impressed, and I cannot reccomended this product based on variation. Even though all bags used had what looked like the same lot number under a flap of bag on the bottom, 4/10 were definitely different blends.

I've used this concrete in the past and decided to put up a wooden privacy fence at our new home and went with this concrete again. It works well if mixed right and you can't beat the price it was on sale at. $2.88 for an 80lb. bag. Not bad at all. Will continue using it as long as it works as it always has for me.

works as expected. use 80lbs to secure 2 fence posts. 40lbs each. mixes well in a wheel barrel with just 5 quarts of water per 80lb bag. i premixed for my fence posts then dropped in hole. some people dump it in the hole dry then add water but the water only soaks the outside and leaves powder cement around the inside of the post. don't be lazy. premix it before dropping in hole.

Product is of good quality and performs as it is supposed too. It gets a 4 star rating because it is concrete after all and to get 5 stars it would have to mix itself. now that would be outstanding. ;)
