Behaviour of Compressed Stabilised Earth Block Masonry under Compressive Loading

( Volume 6 Issue 1,January 2019 ) OPEN ACCESS

TV Srinivas Murthy, Krishnamurthy Pandurangan


Today, there is a necessity to build structures which are economical and last for long. The buildings constructed with earth substance without stabilization, deteriorate quickly in bad weather. Compressed stabilized earth block (CSEB) is an alternative building block among the Engineered brick products. These are non pollution, eco-friendly and the construction tends towards green building. Stress-Strain characteristics and mechanical properties are required for effective and economical design. These values vary due to percentage difference in the ingredients in soil at different locations. Here, the structural properties of  stabilized block masonry in cement mortar 1:3 and 1:5 are evaluated under compressive load in vertical direction. fb of CSEB is  9.587 MPa, E: 1550  MPa and µ :0.242.
