How many bricks in 1 square feet?
The number of bricks in 1 square feet depends on the size of the brick and the spacing used in the masonry. Assuming a standard brick size of 190 mm x 90 mm x 90 mm (length x width x height) with a 10 mm mortar joint, the number of bricks required to cover 1 square foot of wall area would be:
Horizontal spacing (mortar joint included) = (12 inches / 200 mm) x 1000 mm = 60 mm Vertical spacing (mortar joint included) = (12 inches / 100 mm) x 1000 mm = 120 mm
So, the area covered by each brick including the 10 mm mortar joint would be:
(190 mm + 10 mm) x (90 mm + 10 mm) = 200 mm x 100 mm
Therefore, the number of bricks required to cover 1 square foot of wall area would be:
(1 sq. ft. / 0.092903 sq. meters) x (144 sq. inches / 1 sq. ft.) x (1 brick / (200 mm x 100 mm)) x (60 mm x 120 mm) = approximately 8.64 bricks
Therefore, approximately 8.64 bricks would be required to cover an area of 1 square foot with a standard brick size of 190 mm x 90 mm x 90 mm and 10 mm mortar joint. However, it’s important to note that this is just an estimate, and the actual number of bricks required may vary depending on the specific design, spacing, and construction methods used.
