In this article, we will discuss how to calculate number of bricks.

** 1. Introduction **

Brick is a construction material that is used to build walls, pavement, and other elements in the construction field. Bricks are artificial materials made with the help of dried clay, **sand**, lime, and other ingredients.

**It is mainly used to build walls, boundaries walls.**

According to Indian Standard size, its dimensions are (**19 cm x 9 cm x 9 cm**) of the brick when laid flat. In the US generally, Modular bricks are used whose standard size is **194 × 92 × 57 mm**. And, the standard size of brick in the UK is **215 mm x 102.5 mm x 65 mm.**

**The surface on which mortar is placed on both sides is known as a Bed of brick.**

** 2. Types of Brick Masonry **

There are two types of brick wall masonry**;**

**1. Singular or half brick wall**

The half or singular brick wall is prepared of a single bricklayer, it has a thickness of about 100 mm or 4″ also known as a 4″ brick masonry wall.

**2. Double or full brick wall**

The full or double **brick **wall is prepared of two bricklayers, it has a thickness of about 200mm or **8″** also known as **8″** brick masonry wall.

** 3. How to Calculate Number of Bricks in a Single Layer Brick Wall **

**The Brick calculation in the meter for in a single layer or half 4″ brick wall/ calculate the number of bricks required for the wall in the following ways:-**

a. Measure the length and height of the brick wall in meters, Consider this would be 5 m in length by 4 m in high.

b. Calculate the square meter of the wall by multiplying the length and height of the wall to get a square meter such as 5 m × 4 m = **20 m ^{2}.**

c.You need to multiply the resulting square meter by 50 to figure out the number of modular bricks needed for a single layer or half brick wall such as 20 ×50 = 1000 nos bricks, thus you needed 1000 nos modular bricks for 5 m × 4 m single layer or half 4″ **brick **wall.

** 4. How to Calculate Number of Bricks in a Double Layer Brick Wall **

How to calculate brick in a double layer brick wall in meter brick calculation in the meter for in a double layer or full 9″ brick wall/ calculate the number of bricks needed for the wall in following ways:-

a. Measure the length and height of the brick wall in meter, assume this would be 5 m in length by 4 m in high

b. calculate the square meter of the wall by multiplying the length and height of the wall to get a square meter such as 5 m × 4 m = **20 m ^{2}**.

c. You need to multiply the resulting square meter by 100 to figure out the number of modular bricks required for double layer or full 9″ brick wall such as** 20 ×100 =** **2000** nos bricks, thus you required 2000 nos modular bricks for 5 m×4 m double layer or full 9″ brick wall.

** 5. Convert m**^{2} to ft^{2 }

^{2}to ft

^{2 }

Multiply the area value by 10.764 to change into square feet.
