Brick is a material that has been widely used in construction sector,
however, it has not received the necessary attention in order to improve its
performance, which has resulted a general lack of knowledge about its manufacturing
processes such as: clay mines over-exploitation, ignorance of mixtures dosages
and greenhouse gas emissions from wood burning.
This research therefore aims to find a suitable mixture to produce improved
bricks (LM) by analysing its mechanical properties compared with handmade
bricks (LPA). Besides, this research work uses the “geo-polymerization” process
for the preparation of ecological bricks (LE) at slightly ...
