Variation in Compressive Strength of Handmade Adobe Brick
      Sasui, Watcharin Jinwuth,Sirimas Hengrasmee
Abstract: The construction of houses with adobe brick is common practice among the developing communities of the world. The adobe is well known to have good compressive strength, according to the researches the compressive strength value varies and depends on the factors therefore soil proportion, curing age, form and dimensions. In order to examine the influence of these factors the experiment has been performed by conducting compressive strength test on five adobe masonry specimens of same soil texture, same curing age and of similar dimensions and shape. The experiment shows the greater variation in the compressive strength of each brick. The strength values shows 59.21% coefficient of variation ‘CV’. By comparing the experimental results with the reviewed researches the study concluded that the adobe is a handmade brick; the variation in strength value may still occur, even though the bricks are prepared under similar factors.
