The specimens were built by local artisans using locally produced materials to simulate actual field conditions and indigenous construction methods. The different kinds of reinforcement tested were inspired by the recommendations of the Safer House Construction Guidelines of Malawi. Focusing on the masonry panel tests in (c) above, the main results from the experimental program are presented herein. The results help quantify the effect of simple, available types of retrofitting/reinforcing of masonry houses in Malawi.
