Abstract
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 their water vapour permeability and suitable hygrothermal behaviour. The present paper show preliminary results of an ongoing research on clay plasters...
