- The aim of our project is to compare the strength, durability of conventional blocks with light weight interlocking blocks. In comparision of Ordinary interlocking blocks with light weight interlocking blocks has some advantages such as high compressive strength, durability and low cost. It is eco-friendly. After the several researches project involving the strengthening and reducing the weight of interlocking blocks by using wet ash and synthetic vegetable protein as a admixtures in the interlocking blocks. Then the test has shown improvements in strength, durability compared to conventional blocks and Light weight interlocking bricks. The benefits of using wet ash and synthetic vegetable protein is used to reduce the weight of interlocking bricks. The brick is moulded with dimension of 12x6x5 inch with curing continuously for 28 days. Finally the brick tested by using Compression Testing Machine. The wet ash and synthetic vegetable protein gives more compressive strength and durability as compared to the conventional bricks.
