Computer modeling to build better mud bricks

Craig Foster at University of Illinois at Chicago has got some money to do Finite Element modelling of mud brick walls.

He is working with B V Venkatarama Reddy of IIT Bangalore and looking at the shear behaviour.

Will be interesting to see what they come up with – I hope they look at the work we have already done. FE modelling of earth walls is simple, getting the right material model is much more difficult!
