Types of bricks:
My title for today is Types of bricks that normally used in construction .I believe that everyone of us also know what is bricks right? But do you all know there are many types of bricks? Bricks are normally solid or hollow in shape. All types of bricks can used for construction or some decorative function. Bricks are one of the longest lasting and strongest material used in construction throughout history. Bricks are stacked together by using mortar to make a permanent structure in a building. For example the wall of a building.
Today I will present about 3 types of bricks that normally used in construction.There are mud bricks, burned bricks and cement bricks.Without wasting time, let me start my first point , mud bricks.
Mud bricks are made by mixture of sticky clay and sand. The mixture will press into a mould. Then , the mud will left to dry slowly under the sun .This process will taking around 25 days. After that, the bricks are ready to use. The mud bricks are very economical and sound environmentally. These bricks are made by using natural materials and require so little of energy to produce. They are sun dried and simply manufactured.These bricks also very good in fire resistance. A standard mud brick wall can last 4 hours of fire hitting. The uses of mud bricks. They are used for construction and build. They are suitable used for construction of fire rated walls within buildings. The Great Mosque of Djenne in Mali is one of the building built by mud bricks.
After that let me proceed to my second point, Burned Bricks. The burned bricks is almost same like the mud bricks and also made by clay and sand. The mixture will put into a mould. Then the sample will put into a kiln to dry it. These bricks will be stronger and lighter than mud bricks .Their strength will not get reduced after putting it into water. Besides, these bricks can made…...

Brick

...A Brick is a block, or a single unit of a ceramic material used in masonry construction. Typically bricks are stacked together, or laid as brickwork using various kinds ofmortar to hold the bricks together and make a permanent structure. Bricks are typically produced in common or standard sizes in bulk quantities. They have been regarded as one of the longest lasting and strongest building materials used throughout history. In the general sense, a "brick" is a standard-sized weight-bearing building unit. Bricks are laid in horizontal courses, sometimes dry and sometimes with mortar. When the term is used in this sense, the brick might be made from clay, lime-and-sand, concrete, or shaped stone. In a less clinical and more colloquial sense, bricks are made from dried earth, usually from clay-bearing subsoil. In some cases, such as adobe, the brick is merely dried. More commonly it is fired in a kiln of some sort to form a true ceramic. A seashell or sea shell, also known simply as a shell, is a hard, protective outer layer created by an animal that lives in the sea. The shell is part of the body of the animal. Empty seashells are often found washed up on beaches by beachcombers. The shells are empty because the animal has died and the soft parts have been eaten by another animal or have rotted out. Apart from mollusk shells, other shells that can be found on beaches are those of barnacles, horseshoe crabs and brachiopods. Marine annelid worms in the family Serpulidae......

Brick Lane

...Brick Lane Immigration is the action of coming to live permanently in a foreign country, and this process is very difficult and challenging due to a lot of different reasons. One of the most essential and important elements on how to immigrate in a foreign country is to know its language. This is a decisive advantage, because good communication with your fellow citizens results in better job opportunities, social life and integration. This can be seen in the book and the movie “Brick Lane”, where we are introduced to the Bangladeshi mother and wife Nazneen. The main character of “Brick Lane” is Nazneen, who moves to London as an 18-year-old, when she gets married to the highly educated Chanu. Nazneen lives as a traditional Bangladeshi woman, whose primarily function is to be a housewife. In the beginning of “Brick Lane” Nazneen accepts and adjusts to almost everything and this can be seen in the conversation with Chanu about their bed, where she says the following: “I don’t mind. I can sleep on the floor” She does not tell her honest opinion and perhaps it is due to Chanu’s high educational background and dominance in the relationship that makes her feel inferior. Nazneen is also religious and she believes that everything happens for a reason. Her fate is decided by Allah and therefore she does not complain but accepts. The traces of Chanu and Nazneen’s arranged marriage are obvious because there is no emotional attachment between Nazneen and Chanu. Chanu does not marry...

Brick & Click

...impact was the Honda MotoGP site; it is well branded and has very high quality images of the sport in action. The website has a very clear and simple layout and they have made it very easy to navigate around the site and to the information that you’re looking for. Contrary to the flashy image of the MotoGP site, the SCONUL and biz/ed had a dated image in my opinion. I feel that they need to revamp the way in which the sites are displayed so that the user is kept interested and alert so they will keep using the service provided by the site. Task 2 The 5 main points which make a ‘good’ website * Content * Interoperability * Updates * Accessibility * Load Time Task 3 Task 5 Operating a business as a traditional shop (brick) and operating an e-commerce site (click) are two very different operations and require different skills. For the majority of products sold in the present day, e-commerce is a reliable and easy way for consumers to buy what they want; however there are certain products in which it would just not work to solely rely on a website to do business. A very good example of this would be a Wedding Dress business, a bride doesn’t want to look at a few pictures a description of the design of the dress and a range of sizes, a bride wants to be able to go into a shop and look at all of the various dresses with her own eyes (as they can often look very different in person compared to a picture) and she wants to be able to try and on to see what......

Mussel Shells as Bricks

...The Effectiveness of Using Mussel Shells as an Alternative Ingredient in Making Bricks Chapter I ABSTRACT Waste management has been a problem since then because lots of wastes are not used efficiently- needing the people to make a move to convert these wastes into useful things. Thus, this study is undertaken to contribute to the ideas of waste management programs and to find out the effectiveness of mussel shells as an alternative material in making bricks. This study intends to make eco-friendly and affordable bricks by combining the powdered mussel shells, sand and cement with an appropriate ratios. A series of experiments were conducted to study the effect of using mussel shells on the compressive strength and percentage of water absorption of the bricks. The bricks were tested at the construction materials testing center and it proved that the bricks can hold enough strength and can absorb much water. It showed that the sample 1 (3tahong:1cement) has a compressive strength of 3.75MPa which means it is considered as a non structural brick and it has a percentage of water absorption of 13.02%. Since using mussel shell as a component in making bricks will only produce a non structural brick, the researchers conducted another set of samples. Sample 2 can carry more loads 325kN than the two other samples 3 and 4, 275kN and 115kN but sample 2 can absorb more water 19.26% than the other two, 15.7%.

Are Brick-and-Mortar Stores Dying

...Are brick-and-mortar stores dying? More specifically, in the future will there be fewer and fewer physical stores until at some point, there are no physical stores in existence?  After reading these articles, I believe that brick-and-mortar stores are not dying. In today’s digital environment, no one can stop brick-and mortar stores from going online. Ecommerce is capturing more and more market share, online and mobile commerce continue to grow for both web-based and traditional retailers. Most of examples and statistical data in these articles show the recession of brick-and mortar stores, like in the last holiday season, there is only half the holiday foot traffic of 2010 (Is the death of brick-and mortar retail a myth?); the Sears store in Coralville is going out of business (Death of sears). With the rapid development of digital commerce, it is a constant fact that there be fewer and fewer physical stores. Even the number of brick-and mortar stores is going down, but I still believe the quality for them is rising, and the presence of physical stores is necessary, and there still have many reasons for physical stores existing. As mentioned in the articles, some physical stores can offer unique experience that consumers cannot get online, such as providing opportunities for customers to touch and feel merchandise, gain expert advice from customer service. In addition, we cannot deny the fact that there are some brick-and-mortar model more successful than online model,......

Brick Is Gay

...Is Brick Gay? Brick is the most instrumental yet distant character in the play. Brick is an alcoholic and most times in the play, he is seen sipping on some “echo spring”. Brick seems to have turned to drinking to dull away the pain that he feels from the death of his friend Skipper. In Act two, Big Daddy confirms that Brick started drinking “when his friend Skipper died”. Brick also drinks so that he does not face reality. Brick himself says that he drinks until he hears “click in his head that makes me peaceful.” This peace is what separates him from the reality that his friend Skipper is dead. The playwright, Tennessee Williams intentionally makes the idea of Brick’s homosexuality ambiguous. In the stage directions in Act Two, Williams says that “some mystery should be left in the revelation of character…” In fact, it is not until towards the end of Act One that the reader starts wondering about Brick’s relationship with Skipper. During her conversation with Brick, Margaret talks about how she should never have told Brick about “that thing with Skipper”. Margaret had a slept with Skipper to get Brick’s attention and prove that he was not gay. When Margaret mentions this, Brick becomes agitated and tells Maggie to “shut up about Skipper”. He gets really angry and tells Maggie that she is fooling with something that “nobody ought to fool with.” Maggie continues to talk about her one-night stand with Skipper. She even mentions one time when Skipper, Brick, Gladys......

Brick Opening

...Brick opening The film Brick was released in 2005 and was directed by Rian Johnson. The opening of film Brick uses a variety of film techniques which makes the scene very captivating. In this essay I will be focusing on two major aspects of the film that I feel is the most effective which are the range of camera angles and a broad range of sound effects used in the scenes. These features are very important as they convey deep meanings in the film therefore provoking certain responses from the audience. The Non-diagetic sound of the eerie music played at the beginning of the already sets a dark mood to the film as a result of the high pitched ‘bells’ that are played repetitively in a minor key. This sets an uneasy tone in the film as it is quite an unusual way to open a scene although the scene has not started yet as shown in figure 1. Figure 1 The bells sound like they are being furiously being played and therefore makes the atmosphere of the movie more uneasy as the audience are unable to relax to this kind of music. Additionally, the guitar plays repetitive chords which is played in the minor key along with the bells. The way the music has been put together makes the audience to feel on edge and will anticipate an unusual event that may take place in the future. The use of a range of shots helps to continue that sense of uneasiness of the audience. This is firstly done by an extreme close up of the face of the character. Parallel sound occurs in the first......

Traditional Brick Is More Vulnerable in Earthquake

...TRADITIONAL BRICK IS MORE VULNERABLE IN EARTHQUAKE Dr. Ahmad Kamruzzaman Majumder The history of brick making is not known to me but nearly 2050 years ago temple were made of these traditional brick. Nowadays the style of making home is that the cement and sand is kept between two brick but previously it’s a clay that is kept between two brick. In ancient times the styles of roof were also different. It used to be flat tiles but nowadays concrete and steel are used for making the roof. In ancient times the tiles were also made up of clay mud after burning in the fire. Today in Bangladesh the size of brick is 9.5''X4.5''X2.75'' which is seen all over the country. This brick is kept one after another and make the wall. In between two brick the paste of cement and sand is being used as a binding material. The readers might think that all these things are earlier whenever we keep our eyes it is seen. What new to tell. My opinion is that year after year we are doing the same mistake to make our buildings in local construction practice by using those ancient clay brick. What is this mistake and to recover the mistake and doing appropriate work is not concerned by anyone. When I saw that one or two organization understood this problem and try to change the ancient brick use and to do something new and facing lots of criticism then there is no other way except being disappointed. honestly speaking when the use of clay brick started is not known to me but in some places some......

Fly Ash Brick

...pid=S1516-14392008000200008&script=sci_arttext Process parameter optimization for fly ash brick by Taguchi method     Prabir Kumar Chaulia*; Reeta Das Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute, Durgapur–713209, India     ABSTRACT This paper presents the results of an experimental investigation carried out to optimize the mix proportions of the fly ash brick by Taguchi method of parameter design. The experiments have been designed using an L9 orthogonal array with four factors and three levels each. Small quantity of cement has been mixed as binding materials. Both cement and the fly ash used are indicated as binding material and water binder ratio has been considered as one of the control factors. So the effects of water/binder ratio, fly ash, coarse sand, and stone dust on the performance characteristic are analyzed using signal–to–noise ratios and mean response data. According to the results, water/binder ratio and stone dust play the significant role on the compressive strength of the brick. Furthermore, the estimated optimum values of the process parameters are corresponding to water/binder ratio of 0.4, fly ash of 39%, coarse sand of 24%, and stone dust of 30%. The mean value of optimal strength is predicted as 166.22 kg.cm–2 with a tolerance of ± 10.97 kg.cm–2. Confirmatory experimental result obtained for the optimum conditions is 160.17 kg.cm–2.
