How many bricks are required in 1 brass ?

People wonder about how many bricks are required in 1 brass ? 1 brass is equal to 100 cubic feet volume and it is also used as measuring of surface area of 100 square foot. Considering the size of cart Dumper tractor trolley loaded with bricks having size of load bed is 8′ × 5′ and height upto 2.5′. Now the volume is 8′ × 5′ × 2.5′ is equal to 100 cft.

How much bricks are in 1 brass ?

We have given 1 brass = 100 cft

Converting cubic feet volume into metre cube

We know that 35.3147 cft = 1 m3

100 cft = 100/35.3147 m3 = 2.83168 m3

In India standard brick size is modular brick having 190 mm × 90 mm × 90 mm dimension.

Now size of one brick = 190 mm × 90 mm × 90 mm

Value in m3 = 0.190 m × 0.090 m × 0.090 m = 0.001539 m3

Volume of 1 brick = 0.001539 m3

Number of bricks = 1 brass volume/brick volume

No. of bricks = 2.83168 m3/ 0.001539 m3

No. of bricks = 1839.94 = 1840

About 1840 number of bricks required in 1 brass in cart like dumper, tractor trolley having capacity volume equal to 100 cft or 1 brass without addition of mortar thickness.

If painter or mason billing their brickwork or masonry work. If we calculate number of brick in brick wall for 1 brass then we should considering thickness of mortar also. now question is arises how many bricks required in 1 brass in brickwork.

Brick size = 190 mm × 90 mm × 90 mm

Thickness of mortar = 10 mm

Brick size with mortar = 200 mm × 100 mm × 100 mm

Now volume of bricks size with mortar = 0.2 m × 0.1 m × 0.1 m = 0.002 m3

Number of bricks = 1 brass volume/brick volume

No. of bricks = 2.83168 m3/ 0.002 m3

No. of bricks = 1415.84 = 1416
