Considerations on the physical and mechanical properties of lime-stabilized rammed earth walls and their evaluation by ultrasonic pulse velocity testing [Article]
This study examines the influence of moulding moisture content on the compressive strength, dry density and porosity of a rammed earth wall, using ultrasound as a complementary technique. Non-parametric and multivariate ...
Rammed Earth Construction: A Proposal for a Statistical Quality Control in the Execution Process [Article]
(MDPI AG, 2020)
Unlike other common contemporary construction materials such as concrete, mortars, or fired clay bricks, which are widely supported by international standards and regulations, building with rammed earth is barely regulated. ...
The use of non-destructive testing to evaluate the compressive strength 1 of a lime-stabilised rammed-earth wall: Rebound index and ultrasonic pulse velocity [Article]
The non-standardization of rammed earth construction involves the quality control of such a technique to be so troublesome that it is generally avoided. As a possible approach to improve the mentioned quality control, this ...
