Short Description

Concrete block construction has gained importance and has become a valid alternative to fired clay bricks. The essential ingredients of concrete are cement, aggregate (sand, gravel) and water. Concrete blocks are produced in a large variety of shapes and sizes. They can be produced manually or with the help of machines.

Most commonly used concrete blocks are sized:

Length: 40cm (half blocks: 20cm)

Height: 20cm

Width: 8/10/15/20cm

Hollow blocks: are the most common type of concrete blocks, having one or more holes that are open at both sides. The total void area can amount to 50% of the gross cross-sectional area.

Solid blocks : have no cavities, or- according to standards- have no voids amounting to not more than 25% of the gross cross-sectional area.

 Advantages

Technical advantages

 Solid blocks:

  • High compressive strength, resistance to weathering, impact and abrasion
  • Capability of being molded into components of any shape and size
  • Good fire resistance up to about 400°C
  • Rapid construction
  • Very good stability

Hollow blocks:

  • Can be made larger than solid blocks
  • Are lighter in weight
  • Construction of walls is easy and quick
  • The voids can be filled with steel bars and concrete, achieving high earthquake resistance
  • The air space provides good thermal insulation
  • The cavities can be used for electrical installation and plumbing

Economic advantages

  • Production can be started with little capital.
  • Less working time required for brick laying work with concrete blocks.
  • Less mortar consumption
  • Generally, production costs of concrete blocks are slightly lower than of fired bricks.
