Concrete block also known as concrete masonry unit in short form represented as CMU made of concrete, mixture of cement, sand and water or industrial wastage like coal dust, fly ash, recycled material, bottom ash, etc.

There is a different form of concrete masonry unit (CMU) cinder block, concrete bricks, hollow cinder block, solid concrete block, lintel block, concrete stretcher block, concrete pillar blocks, partition concrete block, corner concrete block, concrete pillar block.

Concrete block serve as economic building material and there is a wide range of Construction application for many types of Residential, Public and industrial building. Due to sturdy and long lasting building material, architect and Engineer will recommended for house construction, retaining wall, security barriers etc and this is best choice.

Whether you are planning to construct project, renovate your house, better choice is to use concrete block as construction material to lay out external or partition wall.

Concrete block is highly adaptable and versatile material resistance of fire, variety of aesthetic qualities, high structural capacity, strength, longevity, beautiful appearance, resistant to water, need minimum maintenance and economical building material, due to this it is widely used all over the world.

In this article we know about concrete block dimensions in cm or sizes of 10 cm, 15 cm, 20 cm, 25 cm, 30 cm full & half concrete Block. Dimensions of concrete block measured in different international unit, such as in centimeter, millimeter, or in inches. But here we describe about concrete block dimensions in cm.

Typically, Full concrete block or CMU have nominal face dimensions of 20 cm in height by 40 cm in length, available in nominal thicknesses of 10 cm, 15 cm, 20 cm, 25 cm and 30 cm. Half concrete block or CMU have nominal face dimensions of 20 cm in height by 20 cm in length respectively. This is standard dimensions of concrete block in cm.

Generally, size of CMU represented by Thickness × height × length, in normal height and length are same of all type, but their thickness are different, so, it is categorized as per thickness such as 10 cm, 15 cm, 20 cm, 25 cm and 30 cm. It is also categorized as Full block and Half block.

**Concrete Block Dimensions**

Standard dimensions of concrete block is 20 cm in height by 40 cm in length, available in nominal thicknesses of 10 cm, 15 cm, 20 cm, 25 cm and 30 cm. Half concrete block or CMU have nominal face dimensions of 20 cm in height by 20 cm in length respectively.

**Dimensions of 10 cm full & half block**

10 cm Full Block or CMU have nominal face dimensions of 20 cm in height by 40 cm in length by 10 cm in thickness i.e. Thickness × Height × Length = 10 cm × 20 cm × 40 cm. Their actual size are 10 mm smaller than nominal, required for mortar joints.

10 cm half Block or CMU have nominal face dimensions of 20 cm in height by 20 cm in length by 10 cm in thickness i.e. Thickness × Height × Length = 10 cm × 20 cm × 20 cm. Their actual size are 10 mm smaller than nominal, required for mortar joints.

**Dimensions of 15 cm full & half block**

15 cm Full Block or CMU have nominal face dimensions of 20 cm in height by 40 cm in length by 15 cm in thickness i.e. Thickness × Height × Length = 15 cm × 20 cm × 40 cm. Their actual size are 10 mm smaller than nominal, required for mortar joints.

15 cm half Block or CMU have nominal face dimensions of 20 cm in height by 20 cm in length by 15 cm in thickness i.e. Thickness × Height × Length = 15 cm × 20 cm × 20 cm. Their actual size are 10 mm smaller than nominal, required for mortar joints.

**Dimensions of 20 cm full & half block**

20 cm Full Block or CMU have nominal face dimensions of 20 cm in height by 40 cm in length by 20 cm in thickness i.e. Thickness × Height × Length = 20 cm × 20 cm × 40 cm. Their actual size are 10 mm smaller than nominal, required for mortar joints.

20 cm half Block or CMU have nominal face dimensions of 20 cm in height by 20 cm in length by 20 cm in thickness i.e. Thickness × Height × Length = 20 cm × 20 cm × 20 cm. Their actual size are 10 mm smaller than nominal, required for mortar joints.

**Dimensions of 25 cm full & half block**

25 cm Full Block or CMU have nominal face dimensions of 20 cm in height by 40 cm in length by 25 cm in thickness i.e. Thickness × Height × Length = 25 cm × 20 cm × 40 cm. Their actual size are 10 mm smaller than nominal, required for mortar joints.

25 cm half Block or CMU have nominal face dimensions of 20 cm in height by 20 cm in length by 25 cm in thickness i.e. Thickness × Height × Length = 25 cm × 20 cm × 20 cm. Their actual size are 10 mm smaller than nominal, required for mortar joints.

**Dimensions of 30 cm full & half block**

30 cm Full Block or CMU have nominal face dimensions of 20 cm in height by 40 cm in length by 30 cm in thickness i.e. Thickness × Height × Length = 30 cm × 20 cm × 40 cm. Their actual size are 10 mm smaller than nominal, required for mortar joints.

30 cm half Block or CMU have nominal face dimensions of 20 cm in height by 20 cm in length by 30 cm in thickness i.e. Thickness × Height × Length = 30 cm × 20 cm × 20 cm. Their actual size are 10 mm smaller than nominal, required for mortar joints.
