# Brick Work Quantity Calculation

Today, we will figure out how to ascertain the quantity of the brickwork required. Here Calculation of Brick Work Quantity nitty gritty clarification given underneath. Subsequent to realizing the 1 meter cube volume we can figure the staying quality effectively by simply increasing the 1 meter cube aftereffect of the ideal volume.

1. The width of the wall which is going to be fabricated.
2. Number of the opening in the wall like (Door,Windows,etc)
3. Size or which sort of the brick going to utilize

We should take a guide to see well.

Model: Assume we need to build the wall having a volume of 1 meter cube,the size a brick is going to utilize is 190 mm x 90 mm and mortar is 8 mm thick with a proportion of 1:4. So, we need to find out the following:

1. Quantity of bricks
2. Quantity of cement
3. Quantity of sand

Given information : This calculation can happen into 2 stages.

1. Brick Calculation
2. Mortar Calculation

Step1: Volume of 1 brick

= 0.19 m x 0.09 m x 0.09 m
= 0.001539 meter cube

Volume of 1 brick with mortar
= 0.198 m x 0.098 m x 0.098 m
= 0.0019 meter cube

No of brick in 1 work
= volume/volume of bricks with mortar
= 1/0.0019
= 526 bricks

Stage 2: Mortar Calculation

Volume canvassed by 526 bricks in 1 cum volume
= (Bricks number x volume of 1 brick)
= 526 x 0.001539
= 0.81 meter cube

Mortar Volume
= (Total volume – volume of bricks)
= 1 – 0.81
= 0.19 meter cube(Wet Volume)

Dry Volume
= 0.19 x 1.33
= 0.2527 meter cube(dry volume)

Note: 1.33 is a constant

Cement:
= (dry volume x Ratio x Density of cement in 1 cum)/Sum of Ratio
= (0.2527 x 1 x 1440)/5
= 72.77 kg/50 <1 sack = 50 kg>
= 1.5 sacks

Sand:
= (dry volume x proportion x 35.3147) / Sum of ratio(1 cum = 35.3147 cubic feet)
= (0.2527 x 4 x 35.3147)/5
= 7.1 cubic feet

Results

Bricks = 526
Cement = 1.5 packs
Sand = 7.1 cubic feet

Addendum: These proportions may change by changing the component of the mortar thickness or size of the bricks just as the mortar proportions 1:4, 1:6 and so on.
