**In this article,
we explained How much cement, sand, and bricks are required for 1 square
foot and 1 cubic foot of 9” and 4.5” brickwork wall**

** **

**Let’s dive**

**The thickness of
the brick wall = **9” - 0.75’

**Volume of 9” brick
work (1 sqft) **= 1 x 1 x 0.75 = **0.75cft**

We will take brick size - 9″× 4.5″×3″

**Size of one brick** =
9″× 4.5″×3″ - 0.75’ x 0.383’ x 0.25’

Consider, **Thickness
of mortar** = 0.4 inch = 12 mm

**Step – 1: Calculation of bricks needed for 1sqft and cft**

**Volume of 9” brick without mortar ****=
**0.75’ x 0.383’ x 0.25’ = 0.0718125 cft

**The volume of 9” brick
with mortar**

**By adding the
thickness of the mortar**

Length of Bricks
in meter (L) = 9” + 0.4” = 9.4” - 0.783’

Width of Bricks in
meter (W) = 4.5” + 0.4” = 4.9” - 0.4083’

Thickness of
Bricks in meter (T) = 3” + 0.4” = 3.4” - 0.283’

**Size of the brick with mortar in feet**
= 0.783’ x 0.4083’ x 0.283’

**Volume of 9” brick with mortar **=
L x W x H = 0.783’ x 0.4083’ x 0.283’ = 0.09047 cft

**No. of bricks for 1sqft = (volume of 1sqft brickwork/volume of one brick with mortar)**

No. of bricks for
1sqft = (0.75/0.09047) = 8.290nos

**No. of bricks for 1sqft = 8.290 nos**

**Step 2: Calculation for the quantity of mortar for
1sqft**

**Since, **

We need 8.29 no of
bricks

**The volume occupied by bricks = No of bricks x
volume of one brick**

Volume of bricks = 8.290 x 0.0718125 = 0.5953 cft

**The volume of Mortar = Volume of Brick Work -
Volume of Bricks**

**Therefore,**

Volume of Mortar = 0.75
- 0.5953 = **0.1547cft**

Dry volume of Mortar = 1.33 x **0.1547**= 0.205751m^{3}
(33% increment due to volume shrink after water)

**Step 3: Calculation for quantity of cement for
1sqft**

**Cement = (Dry volume of mortar x Cement
ratio)/ sum of the ratios (proportion)**

Cement= (0.205751 x 1) / (1+6) = 0.205751/7 = **0.029393 cft**

Density of cement = 1440Kg/m^{3}

Which means for 1m^{3} = 1440Kgs required.

Therefore 1cft = 1440/35.315 = 40.775/cft

Since, Density of cement = 40.775/cft

Cement (kg) = **0.029393
**x 40.775 **= 1.1984 kg**

**Step 3: Calculation of quantity of Sand for 1sqft**

**Sand =** **(dry volume
of mortar x Sand ratio)/ sum of the ratios (proportion)**

or

**Sand
= cement volume x 6 (Since 1:6 grade of mortar)**

**Therefore,**

Sand = **0.029393 x
6 = 0.1763**

Density of sand = 1600Kg/m^{3}

Which means for 1m^{3} = 1600Kgs required.

Therefore 1cft = 1600/35.315 = 45.30/cft

Sand = **0.1763 **x
45.30 = 7.98 kg / 1000 = 0.00798 tonnes* *

Sand = **0.00798 **x
22 = 0.17556 cft

**So, For 1 sqft brickwork we need**

Bricks = 8.29 nos

Consider the Percentage of Waste As 10 % Or 15 %

Total no. of bricks = 8.29 + (10 x 8.29)/100 = 9.119 - **10 nos**

**Bricks needed for 1sqft brickwork = 10 nos**

**Cement needed for 1sqft brickwork = 1.1984 kg**

**Sand ****needed for 1sqft
brickwork = ****0.17556**** cft**

**How much cement, sand, and bricks are needed for 1 square foot of 9” brickwork?**

For one square foot (sqft) 9” brick wall we need **10 nos bricks**, **1.1984
kg cement** and **0.17556 cft sand**

**How much cement, sand, and bricks are needed for 1 square foot of 4.5” brickwork?**

For one square foot (sqft) 4.5” brick wall we need **5 nos bricks**, **0.5992kg
cement** and **0.087cft sand**

**How to calculate bricks, cement and sand for one cubic foot (cft) of brickwork?**

As we know, the area of 1 cubic foot 9” thick brick wall (1 x 1 x 1 = cft)
is 1cft so we need **14 bricks, 1.597kg cement and ****0.2340**** cft sand **

**How many bags of cement are required for 100 sqft brickwork?**

As we know 1sqft brickwork
need 1.1984 kg cement therefore 100 sq/ft brickwork need 100 x 1.1984kg = 119.84
kg so, No.
of bags = 119.84 / 50 = 2.3968 bags approximately 3 bags need for 100 sq/ft
brickwork

**How many bags of bricks are required for 100 sqft brickwork?**

As we know 1sqft of brickwork
needs 10 nos bricks. therefore 100 sq/ft brickwork need 100 x 10 = 1000 nos. so,
1000
bricks need for 100 sq/ft brickwork

**How many bags of sand are required for 100 sqft brickwork?**

As we know 1sqft brickwork need
0.065 cft sand therefore, 100 sq/ft brickwork need 100 x 0.065 = 6.5cft. so,
6.5
cft sand need for 100 sq/ft brickwork
