There is a gigantic bucket of technical papers and field research on  
seismically-resistant adobe construction, a great deal of it coming  
from some wonderful engineers at Catholic University of Lima.

A GiGANtic bucket.  Don't ask me where;  just start googling, you'll  
find most of it.

Thanks,
