# 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

Also you can download Excel sheet for this calculation

hope you will understand how to calculate brick quantity or mortar Calculation for Cement & Sand.

i need mo re explantion about more topic related of civil

Sir how to calculte a painting quantity

What is 1.33 value

extra 33% add in dry morter

1+1 of 33% = 1.33

yes

Thank You for the clear calculation given……

Good calculation sir

please update file of excel its corrupted .

Please Download again

Thanks.it is easy and wellestimated

So glad I found this site! Super helpful

This is very helpful! Thank you, sir.

Thanks

Thanks

excellent

This excel is not helping since we use area of a wall to calculate bricks minus the opening. For solid wall yes is helpful because there are no opening so consider the opening when doing this type of excel

Thank you

yes you are right, but not all plan is same, every location bricks size is different, so this excel will help to to calculate.

What is the ratio for calculating sand and cement in one block brick.size 400x200x150

just download the excel sheet and put brick size 400x200x150 mm and put your mortar thickness, you will get your answer.
