Synopsis:

This book endeavours to provide the theoretical tools and practical examples to understand the mechanical and structural behavior of rammed earth buildings. The book will focus predominantly on the procedures to design reinforced cement-stabilized rammed earth structural elements like walls, lintels and beams. It will also discuss the methods to design traditional unstabilized rammed earth walls. A special chapter will be dedicated to the assessment of soil suitability for rammed earth. This book will also provide some guidelines for the use of alternative stabilizers like lime and fly ashes.
