The calculations on this page is based on the following assumptions:-
i) The bricks are laid on stretcher bonds
ii) There is 1/2 inch mortar joint between the bricks
iii) The mortar mix is 1:4 (cement:sand)
The simple way to calculate number of bricks is to divide surface area of the wall by the surface area (vertical face) of a single brick.
Formula: bricks required = wall area/ brick area
