This work studies the mechanical properties
of the soil cement brick and soil cement brick mixed with fly ash from the east
of Thailand, Rayong province. The purpose is to develop the new low cost
materials used in the local area of Thailand. Results show that the average of
the compressive strength and the modulus of rupture (MOR) of soil cement brick
mixed with Eastern Rayong fly ash are lower than those of non-fly ash soil
cement brick. Also both properties values increase with increasing cured time.
However, the thermal conductivity shows the decreasing trend with increasing
fly ash content. By conclusion, considered by mechanical properties show that
soil cement brick mixed with an Eastern Rayong fly ash can efficiently produce
as the structural clay load- bearing tile.
