Mechanical enhancement of casted and compacted earth-based materials by sand, flax fiber and woven fabric of flax

F. Menasria, A. Perrot, D. Rangeard & A. Le Duigou
Earth-based materials are commonly reinforced with bio-based materials such as straw. In this study, we use high performance bio-based flax fibers and fabrics. The aim of this work is to find reinforcements that are able to improve the mechanical strengths and the ductility of an earthbased matrix. We also try to describe the reinforcement mechanisms are also described. In a first step, a kaolinite-based clay soil is mixed with sand to design earth-based mortars with...
