Abstract
In Colombia, earth construction is economically the most efficient means to solve housing problem with the least demand of resources. Traditional earth construction techniques such as compressed earth blocks are experiencing a new popularity, taking into account that they constitute green building materials becoming economically competitive. In this study, preliminary results on testing the use of coal-ash and cassava peels in compressed earth blocks are shown. They were made using a clay-rich soil, without coal-ash and stabilized with coal-ash. The use of cassava peels as novel organic materials were also introduced in the preparation of the compressed earth blocks. Results show that the compressive and bending tests reveal that the compressed earth blocks stabilized with coal-ash produced the best results using a dose less than or equal to 5%. However, doses greater than 5% generate more flexible and fragile compressed earth blocks. Adding cassava peels to the clayed soil increases the required water content for extrusion (apparent plasticity)
