Strength Characteristics of Different Types of Bricks

Dinesh W.Gawatre | Laxmikant N. Vairagade


Abstract: Bricks are widely used in construction as a material, 25 % of material is bricks in construction. Clay bricks are used for construction purpose but pure clay is not available in suitable amount so fly ash brick is used which is the best replacement of clay brick. But now a days at some places the amount of fly ash is reduced or desire quantity of fly ash is not available which fulfill our requirement so new brick is introduced having a balancing amount of fly ash and stone dust which gives tenacious strength and enduring for life. In this paper consisting, comparison of compressive strength of bricks. Bricks manufactured with waste material such as stone dust and fly ash which are available in ample quantity which results economical in manufacturing. The strength gain by using stone dust in (fly ash + lime) brick gives a better strength as Compared to (fly ash + lime), (fly ash + cement, clay bricks. stone dust + fly ash + lime bricks also has less water absorption and negligible decrease in length in dimension test and its light in weight as compared with other bricks and addition of fly ash in this brick tends it to be use as thermal insulation. Stone dust bricks as waste material can be used for manufacturing brick which give high compressive strength as compare to other bricks. In market stone dust and fly ash is a waste material this also made the brick economical as compared to other bricks in market.
