# Calculation of brick, sand and cement in brick masonry?

**For calculation of brick masonary follow steps**

**1.Calculate total wall volume(l×b×h)**

Consider/suposevolume= 50cub.ft.=1.41584 m3

**2. volume of one brick(l×b×h) & ultimately no.of brick in 1m3**( brick size 190*90*90)

Brick vol,190*90*90 cm3 = 0.001539m3

Brick vol+ mortar= 200*100*100=0.002m3

No.of brick in1m3 = 1÷0.002= 500

: – for 1m3 only brick Vol= 500*0.001539

= 0.7695 m3

**3**. **calculate wet volume of mortar=** total volume – brick volume

= 1.41584 – 0.7895

= 0.6263m3

**4 calculate dry volume**= increase it 33% i.e multiplier 1.33

= 0.6263 * 1.33 = 0.833 m3

**5. calculate cement & Sand **supose ratio1:6

**Cement qty**= 0.833 *(1÷7)* 1440= 171.37kg

Divided by 50..= 3.43 bag cement

**Sand qty **= 0.833*(6÷7)*35.3147=25.22 ft3

= 1/4 th brass

**Brick qty **= 500* 1.4158 = 705 no.

Hope all of you understand the Calculation of brick, sand and cement in brick masonry.
