# How many bricks in a single cube (1m3): calculations

From a rational point of view of the calculation of building materials, including brick, avoiding not only unnecessary financial costs, but also to optimize the cost of construction.

Every year, the construction market is replenished with new and new building materials. But the construction of brick buildings is conducted today. Often the construction of private buildings, household or residential demands to know how much you need for brick masonry walls. This will avoid unnecessary costs of finance that can be used for other purposes, for example, stock up on thermal insulation and waterproofing materials. Therefore, a draft, which is calculated according to the desired amount of brick blocks.

## How many bricks in a cube with no seams

In such calculations play an important role, some of the varieties of bricks will be used. After all, each type has its own dimensions. On this depends its volume and as a result the number in the same cube. Dimensions stone calculated by multiplying the length and width with height. It turns out that the calculation of the bricks in 1 m 3 based on the values of the dimensional material.

Typically brick blocks produced according to the size requirements of GOST.

The dimensions of the bricks:

- Single: width 0.12 m, a height of 0.065 m and a length of 0.25 m.
- Bastard (thickened) width of 0.12 m, a height of 0.088 m and a length of 0.25 m.
- Dual: width 0.12 m, a height of 0.138 m and a length of 0.25 m.

When receiving volume, e.g., bulbous (sesquihydrate) bricks, multiply * 0.12 m * 0.25 m 0.088 m and obtain a 0.00264 m 3.

Then, to determine the amount of stone in the manufacture division 1 cubic meter m 3 on the result obtained: 1 / 0.00264 = 378.78 and obtain 379 pieces.

After spending the same steps for the other two types of bricks, we get the volume and number:

- single 0.065 * 0.12 m * 0.25 m m = 0.00195 m 3 and 513 units,
- sesquioxide 0.088 * 0.12 m * 0.25 m m = 0.00264 m 3 and 379 units,
- double * 0.12 m * 0.25 m 0.138 m = 0.00414 m 3 and 242 units.

Note. Divided exactly one cubic meter in the amount of stone, too, in cubic meters.

## What bricks in 1 m 3 of mortar joints

To calculate the size of the stone, taking into account the mortar joint, it is necessary to make a series of actions:

- Measurement of stone dimensions - height, length and width.
- Sum the height and length with the thickness of vertical and horizontal seam. The width remains unchanged.
- Based on these indicators to determine the amount of stone mortar with stones.
- Dividing cubic meter in millimeters on the amount previously obtained.

Take, for example, one and a half brick with a seam. According to GOST it has the following dimensions: a width of 0.12 m, a height of 0.088 m and a length of 0.25 m, the vertical and horizontal masonry joints 0.015 m.

Fold seam with a height of 0.088 + 0.015 = 0.103 m, a length of 0.25 + 0.015 = 0.265 m. The width is not changed.

Then the volume was calculated by multiplying the width of the new dimensions of height and length 0.12 * 0.103 * 0.265 = 0.00327 m 3.

Now we count the number of bricks per 1 m 3. For this purpose, 1 m 3 and divide by 0.00327 obtain 305.81, rounding out with 306 units of stone masonry joint.

After spending a similar action for other types of bricks, we get the volume and number:

- single 0.12 * (0.065 + 0.015) * (0.25 + 0.015) = 0.00254 m 3 and 394 units .;
- sesquihydrate 0.12 * (0.088 + 0.015) * (0.25 + 0.015) = 0.00327 m 3 and 306 units .;
- dual 0.12 * (0.138 + 0.015) * (0.25 + 0.015) = 0.00486 m 3 and 206 pcs.

## Consumption of bricks per 1 m 2 of masonry

Knowing how many bricks in one cubic meter can be calculated on any area of the wall it will be enough. Suppose the construction is one and a half brick.

1. Calculate its area by multiplying the length by the height of the seams:

0.103 * 0.265 = 0.027295 m 2

2. 1 m 2 / m 2 = 0.027295 37 units. So much to brick per square meter. m square.

3. The number of bricks per cubic meter divide the number in square meter: 306/37 = 8.27 m 2.

Thus one cubic meter sesquihydrate bricks can be laid part of the wall area of 8.27 m 2.

Knowledge in the number of cubic meter of brick blocks much easier budgeting.

**Table amount bricks in the cube and square meter**

Without masonry mortar

Since masonry mortar

1 m 2 in a half-brick masonry (thickness - 12 cm)

1 m 2 in a brick masonry (thickness - 25 cm)

1 m 2 and a half brick masonry (thickness - 38 cm)

M 1 2 laying two bricks (thickness - 51 cm)

1 m 2 2.5 masonry bricks (thickness - 64 cm)

# Calculating the number of brick masonry

Building calculator can help accurately calculate the need for brick, knowing the original data. Determination of the amount of material required is made based on the type of masonry and bricks. The calculations used or area of the walls and partitions or volume.

## Calculator brick

To avoid interruption of the process of the construction due to lack of brick and unwanted spending of funds for delivery of materials to buy more, better bring everything at once. Excess material significantly increase the cost of construction. Therefore, if you need to calculate the brick masonry, kalkulyatoronlayn on the construction site - the best modern tools for accurate calculation.

## The principle of determining the flow rate based on the volume of brick walls

The methodology put determining the quotient of the total volume of the walls (corrected deducting openings for windows and doors) by the volume of one brick. The result is a need for its number of pieces of masonry.

In practice, the problem is solved with the passage of several stages:

- determining areas of internal walls and partitions, outer supporting walls differing thickness;
- calculation of the areas of window and door openings;
- subtracting the size of the openings values wall area;
- calculating the volume of their walls corrected by multiplying the area by the thickness;
- calculation brick masonry external, internal walls and partition walls dividing a volume per volume of a single brick.

The task is complicated by the fact that between the bricks are the seams, filled with a solution. They received standard thickness of 10 mm, but may be less if the brick is characterized perfect geometry. A few millimeters of mortar between the bricks within the building, growing up in a fairly impressive value, reducing consumption of bricks.

A simplified calculation is based on standard size single-brick "normal form" (1NF) - 250 x 120 x 65 mm (length, width, height). In a cubic meter of masonry of bricks placed exactly 512.82 pieces. Given seams (10 mm), the difference will be 118 bricks that the whole object is a mountain of waste material. Using the calculator online, buying excess building material will be removed.

Any party brick initially has a certain defect rate. Losses are inevitable during the loading, transport and unloading. This damage increases the calculated amount of 5 - 8%.

## An example of calculating the required number of bricks per unit area

Project design floor house (ceiling height - 3 m) assumes its rectangular shape with 15 meters long and 8 meters wide. The initial data are also:

- Distances of the bearing walls - 22 m;
- partitions length - 26 m;
- number of doors in the outer walls - 2 pcs. (Size 1.3 x 2.15 m);
- the number of door openings in the inner walls - 4 pcs. (Size 1.25 x 2.1 m);
- number of windows - 7 (size of openings of 1.4 x 1.85 m);
- type masonry exterior walls - 2 bricks (double);
- internal bearing walls perform projected 1.5 brick (0.38 m);
- partitions thickness - 0.5 brick (0.12 m).

The calculations are reduced to the determination of:

Using the lookup table, the value is determined by how many bricks in 1 m2 of masonry:

. Based on the fact that for a unit area of the masonry in 2 bricks (with double brick) they must be 104 pieces, the nanaruzhnye wall of the building must be:

119.86 x 104 = 12466 pieces. double bricks.

For internal bearing walls 1,5 brick (brick bonder) requires 78 x 55.5 = 4329 pieces where 78 - average value showing how many sesquihydrate 1m2 masonry brick in thickness of 0.38 m..

For partitions in 0.5 brick material need 78 x 51 = 3978 units single brick.

Thus. single bricks will need to purchase 1.08 3978h = 4296 units, one and a half -.. 4329 x 1.08 = 4675 units, and double brick - 12466 x 1.08 = 13463 pieces - based on 8% of the waste from the battlefield and marriage.

Applying calculator brick masonry, its calculation amount is reduced only necessary to input the original data.

# Online calculator for ordinary brick facing and

measurement units - millimeters. Size (L * W * B), or appearance of bricks

## Information on the purpose calculator

By irpichny online calculator is designed to calculate the amount of building and facing bricks for the house and the cap, as well as other related parameters and materials, such as the amount of masonry mortar, masonry grid and flexible connections. The same calculations can be taken into account the size of the gables, window and door openings the required number and size.

Irpich For a long time the most popular, common and familiar building material for the construction of durable and reliable constructions. This situation persists for a number of reasons, despite the emergence of new, modern and cheaper building materials. There are some of the most common types of brick for any construction needs:

- Samal - clay and various fillers
- Ceramic - (the most common), in baked clay
- Silicate - of sand and lime
- Hyperpressed - lime and cement
- Clinker - from special baked clay
- Refractory - (chamotte) from fireclay

**By eramichesky brick** (Clay) as directed divided into front, series and clinker. Brick series (zabutovochny) can have no ideal geometry and in most cases is used for rough masonry walls of houses, plinths, garages, which subsequently plastered, painted and protected facing materials and coatings. Its color is various shades of red.

**About blitsovochny** (Front) used for the erection of walls without any additional finish them later. There are also a variety of special types of brick facade, capable of withstanding high mechanical loads and adverse weather-resistant, and are commonly used for paving, construction of retaining all kinds of fences, stairs, walls.

**To the linker** has an ideal smooth surface, different shades of red and black colors and has a high density.

**With ilikatny** It is a lime-silicon artificial stone light color. Different silicate brick from ceramic that in the manufacturing process was not fired. It is quite hygroscopic, and therefore is not used for the construction of facilities that will be used in wet environments, such as the basement and basement.

T ak are not same silica brick used in the construction of furnaces, chimneys, the chimneys and foundations, as rather weak withstand external destructive load.

**About gneuporny** divided into several types and is used for construction of structures subjected to high temperatures, such as furnaces, fireplaces, chimneys and foundry. The most common is the fireclay brick, has a yellowish hue, made of special refractory clay (grog), and unlike the conventional clay can easily tolerate high temperatures (up to 1400 gr.), As well as multiple heating and cooling cycles without loss of strength.

By irpichi are full-bodied (void volume not exceeding 25%), hollow and porous-hollow. It is believed that the recesses and cavities in the material not only reduce the weight, but also greatly increase the overall strength of the masonry by increasing the contact area between the brick and masonry mortar.

W hen calculating the number of bricks required for papers typically use a rule called "format", in which the dimensions of the bricks is increased to 10 mm (the thickness of the seam is standard), i.e. is obtained: 260x130x75 mm.
