Paper Title:
Conservation and Preservation of Historical Earthen Structures
  Abstract

This paper discusses the different techniques that can be adopted for conservation and preservation of historical earthen structures constructed using adobe mud bricks in non-seismic regions. Initially, it reports the different damage patterns and modes of failure that are usually exhibited by these structures due to aging process and poor environmental conditions as recorded from field visits. Then, it explains using structural fundamentals and soil mechanics principles the causes for these defects. Finally, it suggests various measures that can be taken to restore and preserve these endangered structures.
