Paper Title
Satbilized Rammed Earth Construction Using Natural Fibers
  Rudresh A N,  Girish P

Rammed earth is an ancient building technique used in many regions of the world. Due to the low embodied energy of the material and diminished transportation costs, rammed earth offers an economical and sustainable alternative to concrete. Along with other advantages like sustainable construction, architectural quality & flexibility, contribution to building health and performance, ease & speed of construction etc. The main weakness of earth as a building material lies in its low resistance to water. Because of the clay fraction, which is necessary for cohesion, walls built of unstabilised soil will swell on taking up water and shrink on drying. This may lead to severe cracking and difficulty in getting protective renderings to adhere to the wall. There are some issues which needs to be addressed like shrinkage, proper soil selection, low compressive strength, cracking, durability aspects etc., for rammed earth construction. From the available literatures and research works done earlier, it is evident that one way to address these problems is to stabilize rammed earth with cement. The primary objective of this study is to make use of the Fly ash (waste material) with NS and understand its effects on the geotechnical properties & compressive strength.
