ABSTRAC This paper presents the results of a series tests for the mechanical characterization of adobe mud used in the region of Tuxtla Gutierrez. The tests were carried out in the Laboratory of Materials Engineering Faculty of the Autonomous University of Chiapas, during the second half of 2008. The following features for adobe bricks were studied: volumetric weight, compressive and flexural strength. Experimental compression tests were also conducted on batteries constructed by joining these
