Conference Paper
Until the second half of the 20th century, the traditional architecture of the Iberian Peninsula was directly linked to the resources available in its immediate surroundings, naturally diversification the built heritage throughout the territory. In its gypsiferous areas, we find a great versatility of construction systems in which the main binder u...
Conference Paper
In traditional architecture, the construction systems used have always been linked to the material resources of the environment. In the areas of extraction of gypsum in the Iberian Peninsula, the use of this material as a conglomerant was not limited to the interior lining of vertical and/or horizontal walls or to interior decorations, as is the ca...
Chapter
In the region of La Segarra, in the province of Lleida (Spain), there is a geological formation of the Oligocene age, called the “Talavera Gypsum Formation”. The traditional buildings located in this area are built with this material, and its use ranges from ornamental elements to complex and structural construction systems. Within the traditional...

Article
Rammed earth is considered a very sustainable construction system due to its low embodied energy, long service life and high recyclability. However, authors found that there is a lack of experimental results at real scale regarding rammed earth thermal behaviour. For this reason, this paper is first focused on the characterization of two different...
Conference Paper
Nowadays, there are several research lines regarding how to improve rammed earth properties. Due to the lack of regulation for this material in Spain, the standard used as reference is related to fresh concrete. However, concrete and earth are completely different building materials. This paper presents the results obtained in earth samples that ha...
Conference Paper
En España se ha abandonado el uso de la tierra como material de construcción debido a las connotaciones asociadas a la pobreza y a la carencia de normativa reguladora. Sin embargo, el amplio patrimonio construido en tierra requiere de los avances en investigación para su conservación, rehabilitación y uso en obra nueva. Debido al vacío tanto en nor...
Conference Paper
Existe un creciente interés en el uso de la tierra como material de construcción debido a su bajo impacto ambiental. Por otro lado, los códigos técnicos de edificación son cada vez más restrictivos en cuanto al comportamiento térmico de los edificios debido al elevado consumo de energía para calefacción y refrigeración en el sector edificación. Con...
Conference Paper
Earth constructions need to be protected from severe weather conditions in order to reduce their maintenance requirements. Constructive solutions such as overhanging elements play an important role to this intend, but plasters are also crucial. Traditionally, lime and clay plasters are considered to be the most adequate for such structures due to t...
