|abstract: ||The tabique is one of the main Portuguese traditional building techniques which
uses raw materials as earth. In general, a tabique element is formed by a simple timber structure
covered on both sides by a earth based mortar. Earth has an important role in this system because
it protects the timber structure as well as is a finishing. The Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro
region is the northeast part of Portugal continental and it is rich in terms of tabique heritage.
Meanwhile, the existing tabique constructions show a generalized advanced stage of deterioration.
This aspect associated to the fact that there is still a lack of scientific studies done in this
field motivated this research work that has been done by the Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro
(UTAD) and Aveiro (UA) universities.|
