Rammed Earth Sample – Video

Hej igen! EarthLab finally found some clay near Chalmers, so we filled up some buckets and started with the process of ramming earth! The soil is not modified from its natural condition in this example. There are many ways of doing these tests, better ways for sure; but this is for EarthLab a good opportunity to have fun and understand the material. What we used is a carton board as a mould, the first times Shea almost broke the mould because of the force when ramming, in the future we will experiment with ABS pipes or stronger materials. So here is a short video of the process, hope you enjoy it and leave some comments!
