Abstract

In this experimental study, the earth blocks (adobes) in five different compositions were investigated by determining its physical, mineralogical and mechanical (their behaviors under compression) properties. Thus, it was seen that higher compressive strength could be obtained with orientation of both materials’ workability conditions as compaction water content, unit mass etc. and material composition. In this direction, the findings were discussed detailed.
