# How To Calculate Number Of Bricks, Cement And Sand For Brickwork?

## Brickwork Calculation & Formula

Standard Size of Brick = 190 x 90 x 90 (mm) Quality check of brick

Mortar Thickness is = 10 mm

**Assume the size of brick work**

Wall Size = 1 x 1 x 1 = **1 meter cube**

**First we are find volume of single brick without mortar **

Volume of Brick Without Mortar = 0.19 x 0.09 x 0.09

= 0.001539 meter cube

**Than we have to find volume of 1 brick with mortar**

Volume of 1 Brick with Mortar = 0.20 x 0.1 x 0.1

= 0.002 meter cube

Number of brick required in brick work Volume = 1

**Number of Bricks with mortar** = 1/0.002 = 500 Nos.

Quantity of Mortar Volume is = Volume of wall – (Volume of Brick without mortar X Number of brick required )

**Quantity of Mortar Volume is ** = 1 –(0.001539 x 500)

= 1-0.7695 = 0.2305 meter cube

**REQUIRED OF MORTAR IN BRICK WORK (Plaster Calculation)**

Now we Calculate Mortar quantity of cement and sand Ratio is 1:6

Mortar quantity is 0.2305 (Wet Condition) we calculate Dry Value

Dry Mortar Value is = 0.2305 x 1.33 = 0.306565 m3

**Cement Calculation**

Volume = Volume of Mortar x (Ratio of Cement/ Sum of ratio)

Volume = 0.306565x (1/7) = 0.0438

Bags = 0.0438 x 1440 = 63.06 KG

**Sand Calculation**

Volume = Volume of Mortar x (Ratio of sand / Sum of ratio)

Volume = 0.306565x (6/7) = 0.2627

CFT = 0.2627 x 35.31 = 9.27841

**Therefore- all materials required for 1 Cubic Meter Brick is,**

**Numbers of Brick-** 500

**Cement required** – 63 kg

**Sand Quantity** – 0.2627 Cubic Meter
