PRADO, F  e  GONZALEZ, M. Influence of the polymeric fibers adding upon mortars based on the bending resistance and compression of mud plasters. Revista de la Construcción [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.3, pp.4-16. ISSN 0718-915X.

One of the most current pathologies that occur in adobe faced constructions is due to the flexion and compression upon the mud plasters. For this reason, it becomes necessary and interesting the idea of generating new solutions, which at a low cost improve the mud plasters’ quality. This research consists in carrying a study about the use of polymeric fibers as reinforcement of adobe mortar plasters. Thus, different samples were made in a laboratory; one zero sample and others, which carried several fibers in different amounts. These were tested in a drilling press as to obtain the characteristics of their flexion and compression. With these results, a statistical and contrastive analysis was made. The results allowed to show which fiber sample comply with the best characteristics after the adding of fibers and thus, create a behavior pattern for this material. It was established that the quality of a non structural element such as plaster-undergone to flexion and compression-becomes more effective with the adding of polymeric fibers.
