Study on Formative Mechanism and Preventive Measures of Rammed Earth Wall Cracks
Rammed earth is a construction form featuring energy saving and economical. However, affected by many factors, the existing rammed earth buildings, in the course of usage, would emerge various forms of cracks. Based on the research findings on rammed earth buildings in northwest, north, central and southwest regions of China, crack forms of rammed earth walls and the formative mechanism were analyzed, in turn corresponding preventive measures were proposed in this article.
