## Calculation of Bricks Excel Sheet Download

Hello Dear friends welcome back to expertcivil.com’s blog so finally today I’m going to share “**Calculation of Bricks Excel Sheet** for** Download” **

Actually, I’m already shared about Different properties of bricks, Manufacturing of bricks, Classification of bricks and Test on bricks that be covered in the previous post.

### Basics Concept of Brickwork

Here is has given some basic points,

- Ensure to read the brickwork construction procedure provided by the client

- Cement mortar ratio should be 1:6 ratio for 9-inch Brickwork and 1:4 ratio for 4& 1/2” inch brickwork.

- The thickness of the mortar should not be more than 10 mm between the courses and sides of the bricks.

- Ensure you are using good quality of cement and sand.
- Ensure you have available all the Civil Engineering tools which are required for the construction.

### Volume of bricks with mortar

**Volume of 1 brick with mortar** = 200 X 100 X 100 (* 10 mm mortar thickness on all sides*)

= 0.2 X 0.1 X 0.1

**Volume of brick with mortar = 0.002 Cum (m ^{3})**

Therefore,

Number of bricks required for 1 cubic metre = 1/0.002

= 500 Numbers

### Volume of bricks without mortar

**Volume of 1 brick without mortar** = 190 X 90 X 90

= 0.19 X 0.09 X 0.09

**Volume of 1 brick without mortar **= 0.001539 Cum (m^{3})

**Volume of 500 bricks without mortar** = 500 X 0.001539 Cum

**Volume of bricks without mortar for 1 cum = 0.7695 Cum (m ^{3})**

Therefore,

**Required amount of cement mortar** =

1 Cum – Volume of bricks without mortar = 1 – 0.7695

**The required amount of cement mortar = 0.2305 Cum (m ^{3})** (Wet Condition)

Please Note – The above volume is in a wet condition that means we need 0.2305 cement mortar in mixed condition (after adding water). In order to find the dry volume, we need to multiply 33 % as bulkage of sand.

Dry volume of a mortar = 0.2305 cum X 1.33 = 0.306565 cum

As we know the mortar ratio is 1:6 (it means **1 part Cement & 6 Part Sand = 7 Part**)

Required amount Cement quantity in brickwork = 0.306565 X 1/7 X 1440 kg

Density of cement = 1440 kg. The reason to multiply this density is, the above multiplication will give us only required amount of cement quantity in brickwork as a cubic metre. But we need cement in Kg. Therefore we are multiplying the 1440 kg density of cement to calculate the cement quantity.

**Required amount Cement quantity** = 63 Kg = 1.26 bags (50 Kg bag)

**Required amount of Sand** = 0.306565 X 6/7 = 0.26277 Cubic metre (m^{3})

Therefore, For 1 cum of brickwork, we need

- 500 Numbers of bricks
- 63 kg of cement
- 0.263 m
^{3 }of sand.

You can also calculate Through given excel sheet (**Calculation of Bricks Excel Sheet** )

### Advantages of using Calculation of Brick’s Excel Sheet

- The exact value of calculation.
- Easy to handle and rapid method for calculating the numbers of bricks.
- You can also calculate the cost of materials
- Time-saving.
- No need technical skills and knowledge.
