Technology Reports of Kansai University (ISSN: 04532198) is a monthly peer-reviewed and open-access international Journal. It was first built in 1959 and officially in 1975 till now by kansai university, japan. The journal covers all sort of engineering topic, mathematics and physics. Technology Reports of Kansai University (TRKU) was closed access journal until 2017. After that TRKU became open access journal. TRKU is a scopus indexed journal and directly run by faculty of engineering, kansai university.

Earth is a natural and multipurpose material, used since ancient times in construction, especially in developing countries. In this work we chose adobe block as an example of the earth material used in construction, mixed it with some fibers stabilizers like straw fibers and pine needle fibers in different rates separately. We have selected the soil from Had Laghoualem, KHEMISSET for making the samples of adobe blocks. The objectives of this work are: study of the mineralogical characterization of the soil and the fibers stabilizers,that we were used for making the samples, it carried out by several techniques (X-ray diffraction, infrared spectroscopy). The results show that each of these materials consists of carbonates calcite, kaoliniteand quartz. Also, we made the samples of adobe blocks stabilized by fibers and measured their thermal conductivity. The thermal results show that the thermal conductivity of the adobe blocks samples is inversely proportional with the rates of straw fibers stabilizers, and pine needle fibers stabilizers. The CT-METRE device was used for measure thermal conductivity
This paper analyzes, during a typical coldestday of the year, the evolution of the daily energy needed to maintain fixed, a set temperature inside a Direct Solar Dryer (DSD). Two parameters areconsidered to study the response of the dryer equipped with an auxiliary heating system:1- The Local climatic conditions,2-The geometric shape of its DSD. In order to examine the influence of climate type on energy variation, three Moroccan sites have been selected, namely Rabat (latitude 34°00’ N), Tetouan (latitude 35°34'N) and Fez (latitude 34°02'N). For the dryer geometric shape impact, several dryer dimensions are scrutinizedusing different set point temperatures
