Brickwork (Revision & Self Assessment)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Brickwork allows the reader to develop their understanding of key subjects by completing the numerous exercises and tests, including multiple choice questions. In addition, each topic begins with a summary of key facts and figures, making this an ideal course text based round core information and assessments rather than reading an extended text. The coverage includes health and safety and basic calculations as well as the technical and practical aspects of brickwork. All students of bricklaying will find this a stimulating and useful revision aid.

What is the main function of a wall? 2. Make a neat sketch of a bonded wall showing
as to direct the ﬂow of liquids into the channel itself. The top is usually sloped at an angle of 1:12. Bond – this is the arrangement of brick or blocks that form the bond of the wall, usually overlapping to distribute the load. Boning rods – these are wooden T-pieces used in setting out drains, levelling ground etc. usually used in sets of three. British Standards – these are rules deﬁning the sizes and properties of materials and their proper use in building. Cesspool – this is an underground
point of the drain is 8.34. The drain is 50 m long and the gradient is 1:60, what should be the reading at the highest point of the drain? a 0.04 b 8.432 c 7.51 d 9.17. 21. The benching on a manhole should be laid to a slope of: a 1:60 b 1:40 c 1:12 d 1:20. 22. Which drainage system is the most expensive? a combined system b separate system c part separate system d cesspool. 23. A foul sewer is normally designed to carry: a storm water b a combination of foul and storm water c an accumulation of
brickwork, what are radials? Radial bricks are special shaped bricks used in constructing curved walls on plan. They allow the cross-joints to be parallel. 2. What information is needed to enable you to set out a curved wall on plan? To set out curved walls, ﬁnd from the drawings the location of the striking point and the radius of the curve. 3. Why is it important to set out the ﬁrst course accurately when building a curved wall on plan? You must set out the ﬁrst course accurately to the
bricklayers to build a one-brick boundary wall, 125 m long and 1.75 m high? Area = 125 × 1.75 = 218.75 m2 Number of bricks = 218.75 × 120 = 26 250 One bricklayer lays 650, therefore two bricklayers will lay 1300 per day 26 250 1300 = 20.19, say 21 days Number of days = 25. Assume the bricks cost £120 per thousand and each bricklayer earns £10.50 per hour, and on average they work 8 hours per day. Including the cost of the bricks, how much would the wall in question 24 cost to build? 26 250 ×
