Investigation of mechanical performances of insulating building materials based on rice husk and hemp hurd

M. Chabannes, E. Garcia-Diaz, L. Clerc & J. C. Bénézet
The purpose of this paper is to investigate the mechanical properties and the lime-based binder hardening of green concretes made of rice husk or hemp hurd. Concrete specimens were subjected to different curing conditions. Under natural conditions, they were cured during 10 months in a climate-controlled room (20°C ‒ 50%RH) and exposed outdoors. The work also focused on an accelerated carbonation curing (CO2 curing) aiming to improve the short term compressive strength (1-2 months) of...
