Abstract: The main drawback of earth construction is the rapid deterioration of the material under severe weather conditions. The objective of this work is to improve the behaviour of stabilized blocks of earth blocks against water attacks. The blocks manufactured with one type of earth were tested in compressive strength as dry blocks and after immersion, in intensive sprinkling and in absorption. Tests of wetting-drying and tests of freeze- thaw were also carried out. The results show the influence of the different manufacturing parameters: compacting intensity, sand, cement and cement plus resin content on the mechanical strength in the dry state as well as in the wet state, water resistance coefficient, weight loss and absorption.
