This chapter describes an industrialized method for constructing monolithic reinforced cement-stabilized earth walls. The process utilizes high-pressure air to impact a carefully selected blend of mineral aggregates against an open form. Pneumatically impacted stabilized earth (PISE) differs from rammed earth in that only one face of the formwork is required and the material is placed at higher water content. The method utilizes equipment designed and manufactured for the shotcrete industry.
