Concrete, steel and bricks are commonly used materials in construction practice, of which, bricks are most commonly used constituent. Masonry walls are commonly used in partition thereby large numbers of brick elements are required in construction of building. In this paper, various types of manufacturing of bricks were studied. Optimum percentage of fly ash using various combinations of material in the brick like lime, cement and clay are studied and their effect on different properties of bricks have been discussed. The parameters considered in this study are compressive strength, water absorption and durability of bricks with fly ash, and are checked with codal provisions for brick elements.
