Hi all, brand new to the forum.
I am hoping there is a genius mind out there that can direct me to where I might find a “formula” for the dimensions of rubble trench to support a rammed earth structure.
I understand there are variables, expansive soil, doesn’t bear well, etc.
I’m really looking for the starting point. If non, I will simply overengineer, sure would prefer not to.
Really enjoy the site and like to see other folks “livin the dream” as well.

P.S. no need to comment on punctuation, I think I went fishing during those periods it was being taught..at least in my mind!

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
All the best,

Various Grit
