Study on the Construction Technique of Xigeda Soil House
With the attributes of low strength, serious denudation and crack easily, Xigeda soil is unique in Pan-xi Region and currently is widely adopted in many rural house construction. In this paper, by mixing different proportion of lime and broken rice straw, the physical and mechanical properties of Xigeda soil are tested, and the improvement measures to avoid disadvantages are studied. At the same time construction dimension is proposed. By constructing experimental houses, key construction steps are put forward.
