Abstract

During the design and construction of house walls, certain factors such as building materials and external climatic conditions, which are essentials and influence in human comfort, are generally ignored. The rice husk is one of the most common organic wastes generated around the word, and in Ecuador this is not an exception. The aim of this work is to study the feasibility of using a mortar which contains rice husk crushed (RHC). To show this feasibility, experiments have been conducted with mortar samples of different proportions of water, cement, sand, and crushed rice husk. The variables tested in this work include several parameters such as: analysis of flow, compressive strength, curing time, and adhesivity. As part of this... (More)

The variables tested in this work include several parameters such as: analysis of flow, compressive strength, curing time, and adhesivity. As part of this project, this particular mortar is used during the construction of the housing walls in prototype houses located in one city of the Ecuadorian coastline.
