Brick pavement, Civil Engineering

Brick Pavement:

In regions where stone aggregates are not available within economical leads, bricks provide a cheaper alternative. Flat-brick or brick-on-edge pavements provide a good sub- base.

Bricks can also be broken into ballast and used as aggregates for sub-base construction. The broken ballast is known as "jhama" metal. The bricks should be over-burnt to give best results.
