Report on the First Dhaka Workshop on Testing of Full-scale Vernacular Structures 6th February 1999

This workshop was hosted by Sheltech Ltd at their Sheltech Chateau development site in Gulshan where BUET's Program of testing of full-scale non-engineered houses was taking place. Participants could inspect the two full-sized village houses which had been constructed under cover by rural builders. One would be tested under static lateral loading and the second had been constructed within a tank so that the effects of inundation could be observed.
