Utilization and End-Users Acceptability of Compressed Lahar Sediment Blocks as Wall Panel for Low-Cost Housing

Title variants
Languages of publication
This research aimed to use lahar sediments from the volcanic eruption in which people would be able to benefit from the construction technology in the form of sediment block was similar to the conventional concrete hollow block. The study focuses on the recognition and acceptance of indigenous material, specifically lahar, as an alternative solution in the reproduction of low-cost housing to lower construction cost and housing backlogs. The study attempts to discover the utilization and end-users acceptability of Compressed Lahar Sediment Blocks (CLSB). This research presented an analysis and determination of the use of compressed lahar sediment blocks as local building material for low-cost housing and its acceptability as an alternative to concrete base materials. It also contemplates a new idea in the development and production of low-cost housing and in support to the government National Shelter Program
