Classification of Bricks Based on Their Using
There are many uses of bricks Based on the purpose of their use bricks are of the following kinds:
1. Common Bricks: These bricks are the most common bricks used. They don’t have any special features or requirements. They have low resistance, low quality, and low compressive strength. They are usually used on the interior walls.
2. Engineering Bricks: These bricks are known for many reasons. They have high compressive strength and low absorption capacity. They are very strong and dense. They have the good load-bearing capacity, damp proof, and chemical resistance properties. They have a uniform red colour. They are classified as Class A, Class B, and Class C. Class A is the strongest but Class B is the most used. They are used for mainly civil engineering works like sewers, manholes, groundworks, retaining walls, damp proof courses, etc.
