How to calculate the amount of Brick,cement & sand required for 1 cum of 230mm thick brick work..

1). Brick calculation
take brick size =200mmx100mmx100mm
convert in meter =0.2mx.1mx.1m
total volume of brick= .2x.1x.1=0.002 cum

calculate the numbers of brick for 1cum = 1cum/0.002cum= 500 numbers of bricks.

2). cement calculation
the ratio of cement mortar =1:5
sum =1+5=6
total dry mortar requried for 1 cum brick masonary=.30cum
so,
cement = (.30x1)/6= 0.05 cum
convert in KG=.05x1440=72KG
convert in cement bag= 72/50=1.44bag.

sand calculation
sand =(.30x5)/6=.25cum
convert in kg =.25x1440=360Kg.

Answer / saif raza

1# Brick calculation
size of brick eg:- 200mmx10mmx10mm
1/.20x0.1x0.1 =500nos/cum.

2#Cement :- 0.3/1+5=0.05cum
:- 0.05x28.8=1.44bags.

3#Sand :- 5x0.05=0.25cum

Answer / er kiran gajjar

Find the 4 × 3 m concrete slab in weight kg .thickness of slab 0.15m.

~ A = 4 × 3 = 12 sq mt.

V= 12 × 0.15 = 1.8 cum

=1.8 cum × 2500 kg/cum

= 4500 kg

How to calculate the amount of Brick,cement & sand required for 1 cum of 230mm thick brick work..

Answer / farvaris kumar

brick = 480 (as pr calculation)
.3= dry volume of brick mortar
cement = .3*28.8/total of ratio(6)
= 1.44 begs in one cum
sand = .3*quantity of sand(5)/total of ratio
= .255 for one cum

How to calculate the amount of Brick,cement & sand required for 1 cum of 230mm thick brick work..

Answer / mohammed aijaz hussain

Volume of Dry Mortar = 35% of volume of Brickwork

Volume of Mortar required = 0.35 X 1 = 0.35 cu.m.

Cement required = 1/6 X 0.35 = 0.058 cu.m. = 1.67 Bags

Sand required = 5/6 X 0.35 = 0.292 cu.m.

Bricks required = 500 Nos.

Answer / ankush rathod

BRICK = 500
SAND = PROPORTION OF SAND IS 1:5 (1 5=6) 5/6 X 0.3=0.25CUM.
CEMENT = 1/6 X 0.3 =0.05CUM.(0.05 X 1440=72 ) 72/50=1.44
CEMENT =1.44 BAGS

How to calculate the amount of Brick,cement & sand required for 1 cum of 230mm thick brick work..

Answer / vipin kumar

Bricks=1/volume of 1 brick

1/.23*.115*.075=504 Nos of Bricks.
But Pricitaly=475 to 485 Nos of bricks(kyoki fat layer not proper 10 0r 12mm).

Sand&Cement =100 cum B/work in 30 cum sand,
Than
cement ratio=1:5
.3/1+5=.05cum dry mortar
(1beg cement volume=(1/28.8)=.0347
Than Cement=.05/.0347=1.44 Bags
Sand =.05*5=.25cum.

How to calculate the amount of Brick,cement & sand required for 1 cum of 230mm thick brick work..

Answer / mohamed alfaiz

actual volume brick ------- 19cm x 9cm x 9cm = 0.0015m3 (1m3/0.0015)=666.66 nos
thickness of mortar -------- 10mm
volume of brick + mortar------- 20cm x10cm x 10cm =0.002m3 (1m3/0.002)=500 nos
=(1m3 -500/666.6)
=0.25m3 of mortar
quantity of cement required
unit wt of cement 1440kg /m3
ratio 1:5
=1440/5
=288kg/m3 x 0.25m3
72kg/50kg per bag
=1.44bag of cement
sand
0.25m3
