Title : Technical studies of Adobe bricks stabilize with lime from the quarry of the commune of Had Laghoualem in Morocco

Abstract :

This article presents an experimental study of the characterization of local materials used in building construction. These materials are Adobe bricks and stabilized with lime. The objective of this experimental investigation is to study the effect of chemical stabilization of lime on the mechanical and thermal properties of adobe bricks. The added lime content is 0%, 4%, 7%, and 10% of the soil mass. The results of this study showed that the thermal conductivity decreases and depends considerably on the lime content. The results also show that the compressive resistors are increased as a function of the increase in the lime content up to 7% (optimum) and above this threshold a decrease of up to 10% is observed
