Bricks masonry calculation

Step 1 :

Volume of Brick Masonry =  Length (m)  ×  Depth (m)  ×   Wall Thickness (m)
Volume of Brick Masonry =  2  ×  2  ×   0.23
Volume of Brick Masonry = 0.92 m3
Volume of Brick Masonry = 32.49 ft3

Brick Size = 9 (inch)× 4 (inch)× 3 (inch)
Brick Size = ( 9 × 0.0254 ) × ( 4 × 0.0254 ) × ( 3 × 0.02454 )
Brick Size = 0.2286 (m)× 0.1016 (m)× 0.0762 (m)

Size of Brick with Mortar = ( 0.2286 + 0.01 ) × ( 0.1016 + 0.01 )  × ( 0.0762 + 0.01 )Size of Brick with Mortar = 0.2386 (m) × 0.1116 (m) × 0.0862 (m)

No of Bricks = Volume of Brick MansonaryVolume of one Brick

No of Bricks = 0.9200 m30.2386 × 0.1116 × 0.0862

No of Bricks = 401 Bricks

Actual Volume of Bricks Mortar = No of Bricks × Volume of Brick Without Mortar
Actual Volume of Bricks Mortar = 401 × ( 0.2286 × 0.1016 × 0.0762 )
Actual Volume of Bricks Mortar = 401 × 0.0018
Actual Volume of Bricks Mortar =  0.7094 m3

 Quantity of Mortar = Volume of Brick Mansonary - Actual Volume of Bricks without mortar
 Quantity of Mortar = 0.9200 - 0.7094
 Quantity of Mortar = 0.2106 m3
Add 15% more for wastage, Non - uniform thickness of mortar joins

Quantity of Mortar = 0.2106   +     0.2106   ×   15100   
Quantity of Mortar = 0.2422
Add 25% more for Dry Volume
Quantity of Mortar = 0.2422   +     0.2422   ×   25100   
Quantity of Mortar = 0.3028 m3

Step 2 :

Amount of Cement

CementSum of Ratio×Qauntity Of Mortar

Cement =17  ×  0.3028
Cement =0.0433 m3
1 Bag of Cement = 0.035 m3
No fo Cement Bags = 0.04330.035

No 0f Cement Bags = 62 kg

Step 3 :

Amount of Sand Required

SandSum of Ratio×Qauntity Of Mortar

Sand =67 × 0.3028

Sand =0.2595 m3
By Considering dry loose bulk density of sand 1550 kg/m3
Sand = 0.26 × 1550

Sand = 402.27 kg

What is Bricks Masonry calculation?

A brick Masonry is building material used to make walls, pavements and other elements in masonry Construction. Traditionally, the term brick referred to a unit composed of clay, but it is now used to denote rectangular units made of clay-bearing soil, sand, and lime, or concrete materials.

The need to build highly durable high-rise structures was the motivation for fired brick manufacturing. bricks Masonry have been widely preferred as a building material because of their high compressive strength, durability, fire and weathering resistance, and thermal and sound insulation. A lot of variety exists in RCC and there are different types of RCC

Bricks Masonry Calculation
Volume of Brick Masonry =  Length (m)  ×  Depth (m)  ×   Wall Thickness

Brick Size = Brick Length × Brick Width × Brick Height

No of Bricks = Volume of Brick MansonryVolume of one Brick

Actual Volume of Bricks Mortar = No of Bricks × Volume of Brick Without Mortar

 Quantity of Mortar = Volume of Brick Mansonry - Actual Volume of Bricks Without Mortar
Where,
  • m3(Cubic meter) and ft3(Cubic feet) is a total area.
  • Here 1:5 ratio so 1 is part of cement and 5 is a part of sand 6 is total ofcement and sand
  • 0.002 is volume of bricks with cement and sand.
  • 0.0015 Volume of brick without cement and sand Answer we get is with water so we get mortar.
  • 0.035 is volume of one cement bag.
  • 1550 is volume conversion m3 to kg.
  • Length and breadth in meter/cm.

Note:
1 m3 = 35.3147 ft3

What are the important bricks masonry?

Clay bricks expand or contract with increases or decreases in moisture content. In addition, they undergo long-term irreversible expansion due to adsorption of water vapor from the atmosphere. The rate of irreversible expansion is initially high but decreases with age. Concrete blocks, stone and mortar expand or contract with changes in moisture content but, unlike clay bricks, they undergo long-term drying shrinkage.
