sago husk content, modified fly ash-bricks, productivity, initial rate of suction, compressive strength
This paper scrutinizes the effect of additive material, fly ash, to modified bricks with sago husk as filler to be utilized as non-structural element of building. This innovation is expected to improve productivity and efficiency of brick production since without fly ash, the brick production takes 1-2 weeks with approximately 70% efficiency. The laboratory test was conducted in this research. It can be seen from the result that the duration of brick production can be reduced to merely 2–3 days. The compressive strength shows better result than bricks without fly ash, with 19 MPa in average. However, increase of sago husk content in fly ash – brick will decrease the compressive strength that still meet code’s requirements.
