DIMENSION TEST OF BRICKS or TEST ON BRICKS


            Hi friends, you are welcomed in the world of Civil Allied Gyan. In this article I have explained about dimension test of bricks (brick size).
By the help of this blog you can easily find the dimension test of bricks (brick size). So please continue to the end & keep your love and support on me.

  • IS: 1077:1999
  • IS: 12894:1990
  • IS: 13757:1993

APPARATUS REQUIRED FOR THE TEST :-
  • Measuring Tape (0.1 mm)


PROCEDURE OF THE TEST:-
  1. Take the twenty No. (20) of test specimens (bricks).
  2. Lay the twenty No. of brick contact with each other in longitudinal direction to   measure the length of the test piece.
  3. Lay the twenty No. of brick in width wise direction and measure the width.
  4. Lay the twenty No. of brick in height wise direction and measure the thickness.
  5. Calculate the individual and average of the measures.
  6. Report the result i.e. height, width & thickness of 20 bricks in (mm).



                             Arrangement of Bricks to Measure Dimensions
