A form of natural architecture built with environmentally friendly materials, earth construction provides indoor protection from outside temperature conditions. In Thailand, adobe brick that contains rice husk is the most widely used material in earth construction. It is important to consider the strength and moisture absorption capacity of adobe brick. This research focuses on the feasibility of using agricultural by-products such as rice husk and bagasse in adobe brick mixtures with a…
