Abstract

Ventilated double layer briquette is used as external walls in the construction of classical as well as modern buildings that are built in regions having climates with high temperatures or rainy and windy seasons. In this construction technique, the external layer which acts as shield against rain, wind and solar rays, and internal layer are laid separately and then interconnected to each other with steel ties.
