The Quantity of bricks calculation is very important because most of the buildings are to be constructed with 75% of brickwork especially (In Asian countries). So it is very important for us to know how many bricks are required in a 1-meter cube volume.
After knowing the 1-meter cube volume we can calculate the remaining quantity very easily by just multiplying the 1-meter cube result by the desired volume.
The calculation is quite simple means how many numbers of bricks you will require to build your wall and others, but there are a few important considerations you must always consider when you are calculating the quantity.
The width of the wall which going to be built.
The number of openings in the wall (doors, Windows, etc.)
Size or which Type of the brick going to use.
Let’s take this example to understand it well.
Suppose we have to construct the wall having a volume of the 1-meter cube, the size of brick is going to use is 190 mm ×90 mm ×90 mm and mortar is 8 mm thick with the ratio of 1: 4. So
1.) Calculate the number of bricks.
2.) The quantity of cement?
3.) The quantity of sand?
Volume (L x W x H) = 1 meter cube.
Mortar thickness = 8 mm.
Mortar Ratio = 1:4
Size of brick = 190 mm ×90 mm ×90 mm. or (0.19 m x 0.09 m x 0.09 m).
Size of brick with mortar = 198 mm × 98 mm× 98 mm. or (0.198 m x 0.098 m x 0.098 m).
