  Abstract

Adobe (khesht) is the most common traditional material which is used in Persian structures because of compatibility with environment, being economic, ease and rapidity of use. In different eras of Persian history using adobe had been common. Its archaism refers to sixth millennium B.C. Attendance to these kinds of structures is important for two reasons.

This article introduces features of adobe as a traditional material. Besides, process of building adobe structure and its reaction to earthquake.
