Title : Influence of Millet Pod on the Compressive Strength of Clay Blocks Compressed and Stabilized by Cement

Abstract :

In this work, we study the influence of the millet pod on the compressive strength of clay bricks from the Maradi region. These compressed bricks are stabilized by the percentage of cement (4 %). A geotechnical characterization was carried out and allowed the classification of the clay which was used to make these bricks. It appears that the material under study is plastic clay and can be classified according to the "AASHTO" (American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials) classification, A-7-6 (18). The measurements have shown that the values of the compressive strength vary between 2.41 MPa and 5.18 MPa. The optimal value is obtained with 4 % of millet pod
