The most important soil characteristies from the viewpoint of the strength of adobe masonry are first studied. Subsequently, based on the acquired knowledge, the effect of some natural additives to the soil is investigated. Simple field tests, devised to identify the most adequate materials for adobe construction and to be easily transmitted to the potential adobe builder are finally proposed.RésuméOn examine d’abord les caractéristiques de résistance essentielles de la maçonnerie de terre… Expand
