What is meant by the Brickwork Class in the material library for masonry according to EN 1996-1-1?


Depending on the geometric requirements of the bricks, these are integrated into classes 1 - 4. All geometric requirements for the brick classes are listed in Table 3.1 of the EN 1996-1-1. An example of assigning the classes according to the total percentage of the brick holes (% of the gross volume) is as follows:

Class 1 (all stones)
≤ 25

Class 2
vertical hole ratio> 25; ≤ 55

Class 3
vertical hole ratio ≥ 25; ≤ 70

Class 4
horizontal hole ratio> 25; ≤ 70
