Abstract :

Papercrete is a newly developed construction material made basically of waste paper, cement and water. Contractors in U.S. are already using papercrete to build low cost houses relying on empirical knowledge of its structural properties. This study is aimed at describing the methodology for mix proportioning, finding out optimum proportion of mix by comparing compressive strength of blocks made up of various proportions in order to ensure economy, sustainability and structural strength to carry desired loads as a construction material. However, papercrete being a recently developed material, there are no written mixing and sampling standards available, therefore trial and error method along with data from available literature have been taken to arrive at the desired results.
