How many bricks are there in 100CFT | brick calculation in CFT, hi guys in this article we know about how many bricks are used in 100 cubic feet brick wall and **brick calculation in CFT.**

As we know **brickwork** is measured in cubic feet and cubic metre. Brickwork is masonry work produced by a bricklayer, using bricks and cement mortar. Generally rows of bricks called **courses** are laid on top of one another to build up a structure such as a brick wall.

In this topic we have talked about number of bricks in **100 cubic feet**,as we know Bricks have different size than AAC block, generally **AAC Block** bigger in size then red clay brick. In India there is two size types of bricks are used in construction. Indian modular size brick have **8″ × 4″ × 4″ dimension and other size of brick 9″ × 4.5″ × 3″**.

**Brick calculation in CFT** is proceed by dividing total volume of brickwork by volume of one brick with mortar, generally thickness of mortar in brickwork is 10 to 12 mm.

**How many bricks are there in 100CFT**

In this calculation we have to find number of bricks in 100 cubic feet, and how many bricks in 100 CFT, let us follow different steps for brick calculation in CFT.

**● Step 1 :** **volume of 1 brick without mortar:** we use brick size 9″ × 4.5″ × 3″ in brickwork. We have to calculate Volume of one brick,for this first we convert brick size in in foot by dividing 12, so volume of one brick is equal to = 9″/12 × 4.5″/12 × 3″/12 = 0.75’×0.375’×0.25 = 0.0703 cft (cubic feet), so volume of 1 brick = 0.0703 cft.

**● Step 2:** **number of bricks without mortar:** we have given volume of brick = 100cft, then number of brick in 100CFT without mortar is calculated by dividing total volume of brick by volume of one brick, so number of bricks in 100CFT without mortar = total volume of brick/volume of 1 brick = 100/0.0703 = 1422 nos, so 1422 nos bricks are there in 100CFT without mortar.

**● Step 3:** **volume of brick with mortar:** consider thickness of cement mortar is 0.4 inch (10mm) in brickwork. Adding thickness of mortar in brick size we get 9.4″ × 4.9″ × 3.4″, now volume of brick with mortar = 9.4″/12 × 4.9″/12 × 3.4″/12 = 0.0904 cft.

**● Step 4:-** **number of bricks with mortar:** number of bricks in 100 cubic feet with mortar is calculated by dividing the total volume of brick by volume of one brick with mortar = 100cft/0.0904cft = 1106 nos, considering 5% wastage of brick, then 5% of 1106 =55 nos, so total number of brick used in 100 CFT brickwork = 1106 + 55 = 1161 nos.

Now question is how many bricks are there in 100CFT? Their answer will be following:

**● Ans.** 1161 nos bricks are there used in 100cft.

**#summary:**

●1) 1161 nos bricks are there used in 100 CFT brickwork with mortar

● 2) 1422 nos bricks are there used in 100 CFT without mortar.
