The paper illustrates the results of a study aimed at understanding the structural behaviour of earthen corbelled domes, used as roofs in several villages in the Aleppo’s region. The materials and the shape of the domes suggested the hypothesis of a “monolithic” structural behaviour, justified by the very good bond between earthen bricks and earthen mortar, and by the use of very low values of thickness, which would have otherwise lead to collapse during the construction.
