Experimental Research on Compressive Strength of Adobe with Cement
Compressive strength of adobe ,which were produced by Traditional methods in rural areas,was from 0.8MPa to 2.0MPa. Adding cement and controling the proportion of water increased compressive strength of adobe in this experiment. The level of compressive strength can been increased by 4 to 10 times. The influence which cement affect compressive strength of adobe and the optimal ratio of cement and water are obtained by statistical methods.And the data provide evidence for production of adobe in vast rural areas.
