Abstract

Naturally grown fiber are not utilized properly they are neglected as wastes. These resources are thrown away due to insufficient research being conducted to discover viable uses for naturally existing fibres. These byproducts have a wide variety of applications in the manufacturing sector, notably in the construction sector. The prospective applications of miscanthus fibre, which may be found growing wild in uncultivated places, are investigated in this research. The production of bricks involves using miscanthus fibre, Azadirachta Indica ash (AIA), and a natural admixture (NAD). This is due to the fact that consideration is given to all three of these aspects throughout the manufacturing process. Egg albumen and egg yolk are used in the fly ash brick in the following ranges of
concentrations as a binding agent: 0.5%, 0.10%, 0.15%, 0.20%, and 0.25%; and 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, and 25% by weight of miscanthus fibre. Both ranges are expressed as a percentage of the total
weight of the brick. Azadirachta Indica ash (AIA) of Miscanthus fibre and natural admixture (NAD) bricks are put through a series of tests over the course of 7, 14, and 28 days to determine their
durability (compressive strength). These tests also evaluate the bricks’ absorption, the presence of soluble salts, the size and form of the brick, as well as its soundness and level of hardness. At the
conclusion of each time period, this evaluation is carried out. The discoveries have the potential to assist in the development of a building material that is friendlier to the environment.

Keywords: Compressive strength, Absorption test, soundness, Hardness test, Naturally fiber
