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. Thanks to this… Expand
A modified corbelling theory for domes with horizontal layers
Abstract In the Mediterranean area, buildings with roofs arranged as corbelled domes comprise a widespread and valuable heritage that deserves protection and enhancement. Unfortunately, structuralExpand
Comprehensive design method for earthbag and superadobe structures
