This webinar is part 6 of a 6-part series on novel materials and methods to achieve net-zero, and it considers how rammed earth can be used as a load bearing material.

This webinar focuses on rammed earth, and much of the content can be applied to other earthen construction load bearing materials. Our expert panel will:

  • Cover the basics to enable you to design a rammed earth house

  • Consider the criteria that make ground suitable or unsuitable for ramming

  • Outline how to design rammed earth for vertical and lateral loads

  • Discuss the main considerations, especially those that you may not think of if you are used to working with steel or concrete

Reasons to view:

  • Hear about the different site investigation techniques required to check the suitability of site-won material

  • Gain an understanding of how to design rammed earth for vertical and lateral loads

  • Understand the typical details to ensure durability

Speakers

Wendel Sebastian conducts applied research to drive innovation across a spectrum of low-carbon structural forms including timber concrete composites, steel composites based on cement-free concrete and prestressed natural stone. He was a UK member of COST Action FP1402, focused on translation of timber structures research into design guidance. His in-situ testing of a 5-storey timber-framed building in London demonstrated the reliable performance of its timber concrete composite floors.

Andrew Smith is a design engineer at Arup with a background in analysis and design of composite structures including timber. He has contributed to the development of a technical specification on timber concrete composites which will form part of the updated timber structures Eurocode (EC5). Design of connections to allow for slip is an important focus of his work.
