Earth is gradually gaining popularity as a structural material due to the desirable properties that can be obtained with various stabilization techniques. Cement stabilized rammed earth is one such application which can offer many advantages such as walls that will not need any mortar or plaster. The wider application of this material for walls of single and two storey houses will need strength and durability characteristics. The strength parameters relevant to compressive and flexural behaviours wore found using a detailed experimental study using wall panels. The durability characteristics were tested with panels soaked in water for 24 hours. The applications of above parameters for single and IWD storey houses were highlighted.
