Abstract

Without transport needs and infinite recycling possibilities, earth is one of the building materials with the lowest environmental impact, but its development is hindered by construction time with conventional earth construction technique. The objective of this study is to use all the recent cement and concrete technologies in order to improve earth materials by providing a material that is as easy and as cheap to use as current concrete products: a Self-Compacting Clay based Concrete (SCCC). This technology transfer can be done as both materials have analogies in terms of physics. Rheological and mechanical measurements performed in earth materials containing polymers and a cementitious binder show that it is possible to obtain a new earth material enough fluid to be poured in a formwork and getting a sufficient strength to be demolded at early age. Furthermore, we show that its carbon footprint is competitive compared to the concrete block.
