The incorporation of the flax fibers has increased the ductility of the hemp concrete.
Flax fibers have improved the compressive power of hemp concrete.
The hybrid composite appears to have a lower water absorption than hemp concrete.
Hemp-flax hybrid concretes confirmed a decrease shrinkage of approximately 15% in comparison to traditional hemp concrete.
An experimental research changed into carried out so that it will study the residences of a hybrid hemp-flax composite fabric in time period of capillary water absorption, mechanical electricity, thermal conductivity and shrinkage. The hemp-flax composite material is made with 90% hemp shives and 10% flax fibers. Hemp aggregates have a excessive water absorption capability, which led to a discount of the hemp concrete mechanical performances. four mixes were made for: shuttered walls, external coating, floor insulation and roof insulation. first of all, bio-based totally aggregates were characterized in term of particle size distribution and water absorption. Then, the compressive power of those 4 mixes turned into determined to evaluate the mechanical behavior of the hybrid composite cloth with hemp concrete. The capillary absorption and the full shrinkage of these bio-based totally substances have been additionally measured. ultimately, we measured the thermal conductivity coefficient of those materials. The consequences of the compressive electricity show a giant development because of the incorporation of flax fibers. Flax fibers enhance the compactness of the cloth, thus increasing its density, which leads to a greater mechanical strength. It turned into found that the capillary absorption of hemp concrete seems to be associated with the aggregates/pa
