  1. 1. Q1. What is brick ? Ans. A brick is a type of block used to build walls pavements and other elements in masonry construction . The term brick denotes a block composed of dried clay , but is now also used informally to denote other chemically cured construction blocks . Bricks are produced in numerous classes , types , material , and sizes which vary with region and time period and are produced in bulk quantities . Q2. Explain its manufacturing process ? Ans. There are four different operations are involved in the process of manufacturing of bricks :- 1.Preparation of clay - In this step is excavated in steps and then laid on leveled ground . Then the soil is cleaned of impurities such as vegetation matter , stones or pebbles etc. After removing impurities it is exposed to weather for few months . This is called the process of weathering . Then the mixed soil is tempered by being thoroughly broken up , watered and keaded . The tempering is usually done in pug mill.
  2. 2. 2.Moulding of bricks – Bricks are moulded in many ways depending on the quality of the product to be made . Generally the moulding is done in the following two ways : . Hand Moulding – For hand moulding the tempered clay is forced in the mould in such a way that fills all the corners of the mould . Extra clay is removed either by wooden strike or frame with wire . . Machine Moulding - Machine moulding is used where large number of bricks are to be made . Machines used for moulding is generally two types : . Plastic clay machines – In plastic clay machines the clay machine the clay in plastic state is forced to rectangular openings of a size to the length and breadth of the bricks and are then cut into strips of thickness of the brick with wire in frames . . Dry clay machines – In dry clay machines , dry clay is reduced to powder , filled dry into mould by the machine and then are subjected to high pressure to form hard and well shaped bricks .
  3. 3. 3. Drying of bricks – Drying is usually done by placing the bricks in sheds with open sides so as to ensure free circulation of air and protection from bad weather and rains . The bricks are allowed to dry till they are left with 5 to 7 percent moisture content . The drying period usually varies from 7 to 14 days . 4. Burning of the bricks - It is the very important step in manufacture of bricks . Bricks may be burnt by two distinct methods given below. . Burning in a camp or pazwah known as clamp burning . Burning is a flame kiln or Bhatta known as kiln burning . Q3 . Explain its composition ? Ans- Following are the constituents of the good brick material : 1. Alumina : If is the chief constituent of every kind of clay . A good brick should contain 20% to 30% of alumina . If alumina is present in excess , with inadequate quantity of sand , the raw bricks shrink

In combine form , it exists in chemical composition with alumina . The excess of silica destroys the cohesion between particles and the bricks become brittle . 3. Lime – A small quantity of lime not exceeding 5% is desirable in good brick material . It should be present in a very finely powered state because even small particles of the size of a pin head cause flaking of the brick . The lime prevents shrinkage of raw bricks . The sand alone is infusible . The lumps of lime are converted into quick lime slakes and expands in presence of moisture . 4. Oxide and Iron – A small quantity of oxide of iron to the extent of about 5 to 6 percent is desirable in good brick material . It also imparts red colour to the bricks . The excess of oxide of iron makes the bricks dark blue or blackish .
  5. 5. 5. Magnesia – A small quantity of magnesia in brick material imparts yellow tint to the bricks and decreases shrinkage . However , excess of magnesia leads to the decay of bricks .
