Maximize strength and ductility 

Enough strength

without too much steel 

Earthen walls rely on stability and are reliable even without strengths comparable to concrete block or brick walls.
  • What structural guidelines are there for brittle unreinforced earthen walls?
  • Reinforced adobe, rammed earth, CEB all have high strength with some ductility.
  • Reinforced ICEB can have moderate ductility, and cob even more
  • Conventional earthbag has moderate ductility with low strength.
  • Improved contained earth (CE) detailing delivers moderate strength with high ductility.
