Designing a smart geometric configuration for dry masonry wall

Designing a smart geometric configuration for dry masonry wall

Yenice, Yagmur; Park, Daekwon;

:

Soil is still used as a building material in many parts of the world, especially inrural areas. Approximately 30% of the world's population is still living in sheltersmade by soil (Berge 2009). One of the techniques is using soil in mudbrick form,which is sun dried instead of being fired in kilns. However, mud bricks have lowcompressive and tensile strength. Instead of enhancing the mix formula, we focuson designing the geometry of the brick itself to improve walls' overall compressiveand tensile strength. The goal of the research is to explore an innovative way tobuild masonry walls through geometrical examination together with computeraided design. Unlike traditional horizontal laying of the rectangular brickelements, 3D designed blocks take advantage of gravity and foster an acceleratedassembly without mortar. They create a balance point in the middle of the wallduring the construction. The geometry of V-INCA blocks allows dry constructionwhich will reduce the amount of time spent on the site. Load distribution and thefriction between two surfaces are sufficient to have a dry construction. Thus, awall built with V-INCA is stronger intrinsically due to its geometry
