This study deals with the impact of the amount and granulates type of Typha Australis on the hygric performance of building material based on clay. Three compositions are tested: Two of them have the same proportion of granulate but differ by their morphology (transversal or longitudinal cut of the plant). The third composition contains less Typha granulates resulting from the transversal cut. Hygric properties are experimentally, such as permeability, sorption isotherms, and moisture buffering value. Results show an influence of the Typha granulate and its volume content on the hygrothermal properties of the material due to the porosity.
