Questions & Answers

What is the weight per float? example 450LBS? or 600 lbs? any one know?

Building dock 8x20 feet for a risver with current and tide fluctuations. HOw much weight does each float support>
Asked by: Kathleenmom
Buoyant force = Volume of water displaced x (density weight of water – density weight of object) So, water weighs 62.4 pcf (that’s pounds per cubic feet). The approximate volume of the block is found by the dimensions given – (24x48x16”) divided by 1728 cubic inches per cubic feet = 10.6 CF. The weight of the block is given in the spec’s which = 37 lbs. So, density weight of the block is 37 lbs. / 10.6 CF = 3.5 pcf. Buoyant force of 1 block = 10.6 CF x (62.4 pcf – 3.5 pcf) = 625 lbs. per Block, if the block is fully submerged. If you don’t want the block to ever be more that say ½ submerged, then only use half the height of the block when figuring out the volume of water displaced. To know how many blocks to use, you need to figure how much weight they have to hold per a certain area.
