Abstract: Even though earthen architecture is highly present in the eastern part of Republic of Croatia, most of the existing buildings are highly deteriorated and out of use. To date, no research has been conducted on the properties of earthen material used for construction of earthen housesn or had any design and preservation acts been proclaimed. Authors have conducted extensive field research in Eastern Croatia, during which samples of traditional material were collected from rammed earth houses. In this study, two traditional earthen mixtures collected from houses in Aljmaš are presented, for which thermal conductivity coefficient, initial moisture content and moisture content after determining thermal conductivity coefficient, as well as bulk density, were determined. This study represents one of the first steps in defining the thermal properties of traditional mixtures used for building rammed earth walls.
