Stabilized earthen masonry (sem), which is built with compressed stabilized earthen blocks (cseb) and mortar, is emerging as a construction system for affordable, sustainable and high-quality dwellings compelling features of earthen masonry are local availability of suitable soils, thermal insulation properties, humidity control within healthy ranges, and relatively low carbon footprint. Construction practices are constantly evolving in order to adapt to physical locations and economic conditions these adaptations may result in more cost-effective designs, but may also come at a cost of strength in masonry shear walls, it is becoming more common to reduce the amount of grouting from every cell to only those with reinforcement, a practice known as partial-grouting.
