Influence of soil grading on the hygro-mechanical properties of hyper-compacted earth for masonry construction [dataset]

Alessia Cuccurullo
This paper presents a study, at material scale, of the dependency between particle size distribution and the mechanical, hygroscopic and durability properties of compacted raw (unfired) earth for manufacturing bricks. Stiffness and strength are measured by unconfined compression tests while vapour adsorption/desorption is investigated by moisture buffering tests. In addition, the durability to water erosion is evaluated by immersion tests. All experiments were performed on cylindrical earth samples compacted at a very high pressure (100...
