Amazing Ubuntu Blox Seismic Test — 5 Comments

  1. The tests in Hesperia (Cal Earth) were conducted on STABILIZED earthbag domes. The dome was built using tubes and the fill was 3-10% cement. Not sure if more then one dome was tested. The city supported the test and eventually a city park building was constructed using earthbags. The building not only survived the test, but testing officials broke the machine trying to get a structural collapse.

  2. Have earthbags been tested this way? I’ve read that there were some tests in Hesperia, so they could get coded. But I’m not sure where those results are online.
    It’d be nice just to know how they handle against tests.

    But this is incredible. I guess it kind of makes sense, just the rebar and lightweight, durable material. Very awesome.
