Brick has long been the most popular, common and familiar building material for the construction of long-term and reliable structures. This situation persists for a number of reasons, despite the emergence of new, modern and cheaper building materials. There are several most common types of bricks for any construction needs:

- Adobe - made of clay and various fillers
- Ceramic - (the most common) of baked clay
- Silicate - made of sand and lime
- Hyper-pressed - made of lime and cement
- Clinker - made of special baked clay
- Refractory - (fireclay ) made of refractory clay

**Ceramic brick ** (clay) for its intended purpose is divided into facade, ordinary and clinker. Ordinary brick (zabutovochny) may not have an ideal geometry and in most cases is used for laying rough walls of houses, plinths, garages, which are further plastered, painted and
protected by facing materials and coatings. Its color has
various shades of red.

**Facing ** (facade) is used for the construction of walls without any additional finishing them in the future. There are also various special types of facade bricks that can
withstand high mechanical loads and adverse weather conditions, and are usually used for paving paths.,
construction of all kinds of retaining fences, stairs, walls.

**Clinker** has an ideal smooth surface, various shades of red and black colors and has a high density.

**Silicate** is a lime-silicon artificial stone of light color.
Silicate brick differs from ceramic brick in that it is not fired during the manufacturing process. It is quite hygroscopic, and accordingly is not used
for the construction of facilities that will be operated in humid environments, such as basement and basements.

Also, silicate bricks are not used in the construction of furnaces, pipes, chimneys and foundations, as they are weak enough to withstand external destructive loads.

**Refractory** is divided into several types and is used for the construction of structures subject to high temperatures, such as stoves, fireplaces, chimneys and foundries. The most common is fireclay brick, has a yellowish tint, made of special refractory clay (chamotte) and, unlike ordinary clay, can easily tolerate high temperatures (up to 1400 gr.), as well as numerous heating and cooling cycles without loss of strength.

Bricks can be full-bodied (the volume of voids is not more than 25%), hollow and porous-hollow. It is believed that recesses and voids in the material not only reduce the weight, but also significantly increase the overall strength of the masonry by increasing the contact area between the brick and the masonry mortar.

The most common standard brick size: 250 - 120 - 65 mm (length - width - height), the so-called first "normal form" (1NF).

When calculating the number of bricks needed for work, a rule called "format" is usually used, in which the dimensions of the bricks are increased by 10 mm (this is the standard thickness of the seam), that is, it turns out: 260x130x75 mm.

The following is a complete list of calculations performed with a brief description of each item. If you haven't found an answer to your question, you can contact us by feedback.

- Perimeter of the building - The total length of all the walls taken into account in the calculations.
- Total masonry area - The area of the outside of the walls. Corresponds to the area of the necessary insulation, if such is provided by the project.
- Wall thickness - The thickness of the finished wall, taking into account the thickness of the mortar seam. It may differ slightly from the final result depending on the type of masonry.
- Quantity - The total number of bricks needed to build walls according to the specified parameters
- Total weight of the material - The weight of bricks excluding mortar and masonry mesh. As well as the total volume, it is necessary to choose the delivery option.
- Number of mortar for the entire masonry - The volume of mortar required for laying all the bricks. The volumetric weight of the solution may vary depending on the ratio of the components and the additives introduced.
- Number of flexible links - Necessary for fixing the facing layer to the main load-bearing walls. The length of flexible ties depends on the total thickness of the wall, taking into account the insulation.
- Number of rows in the masonry, taking into account the seams - Depends on the height of the walls, the size of the material used and the thickness of the masonry mortar. Excluding pediments.
- Number of masonry mesh - The required amount of masonry mesh in meters. It is used for reinforcing masonry, increasing the solidity and overall strength of the structure. Pay attention to the number of reinforced rows, by default, the reinforcement of each third row is specified.
- Approximate weight of finished walls - The weight of the finished walls, taking into account all bricks, mortar and masonry mesh, but without taking into account the weight of insulation and cladding.
- The load on the foundation from the walls - Load without taking into account the weight of the roof and ceilings. This parameter is necessary to select the strength characteristics of the foundation.

In order to calculate the material for the partitions, it is necessary to start a new calculation and specify only the length of all partitions, the thickness of the walls in half a brick, as well as other necessary parameters.
