This work looks to contribute to the study of the walls stability. It’s based on the comparisons of simulations of the dynamic behaviour of some walls built from different combinations of the block-mortar set. These comparisons concern essentially the answer of the walls to the external forces through the determination of their dynamic amplification factor. At the end of the analysis of the simulation results, walls built from the compressed earth blocks and the earth mortar seem to resist better to external forces than walls built from all others block-mortar associations which we used in this work.
