Stabilized mud blocks (SMBs) have emerged as a promising sustainable alternative in the construction industry due to their eco-friendliness, low cost, and thermal insulation properties. This experimental investigation aims to optimize the mix proportions of SMBs to enhance their mechanical properties while maintaining their sustainability and cost-effectiveness. The research involves the preparation of SMB specimens using various combinations of stabilizers, including lime, cement, and other locally available additives. The mix proportions are systematically varied, and the mechanical properties of the resulting SMBs, such as compressive strength, flexural strength, and water absorption, are evaluated through rigorous testing procedures. Preliminary findings indicate that the incorporation of stabilizers in the mix significantly improves the strength and durability of SMBs. Moreover, the use of locally available materials and optimized mix proportions enhances the cost-effectiveness of SMB production, making it an attractive solution for sustainable construction practices in resource-constrained environments.

This study contributes to the advancement of knowledge in sustainable construction practices by providing empirical data on the optimization of mix proportions for SMBs. The findings offer valuable insights for architects, engineers, and policymakers seeking to promote environmentally friendly and cost-effective construction practices in various regions. Through the widespread adoption of SMBs, this research has the potential to mitigate environmental impact, reduce construction costs, and improve the quality of housing in communities worldwide.

iTIC BUILD Winners
SUSTAINABLE MUD BLOCKS (TEAM SMB) have been selected as one of the 75 winners of the BUILD program organized by IIT Hyderabad Technology Incubation Centre (iTIC) from the Civil Engineering department of SVECW(A). The Teams will get a seed money of one lakh rupees to produce an industry-ready prototype.

Brief: Creating eco-friendly, cost-effective, and sustainable homes while minimizing conventional concrete construction problems can be achieved through stabilized mud blocks. These blocks utilize locally sourced materials, reducing the need for importing. They are economical, leading to more cost-effective structures. By adopting traditional construction techniques, we can lower the environmental impact. The result is a happy, lively home that harmonizes with nature and promotes sustainability.
