This design manual is a first attempt at understanding and describing the robust structural design of brick kilns to rebuild kilns in the “right way”. The need for development of such design has arisen in response to the structural damages that occurred to brick kilns from the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal in April 2015. To achieve this goal, MinErgy Pvt. Ltd. and FNBI worked together with Greentech Knowledge Solutions Pvt. Ltd. and a technical committee, comprised of brick kiln experts and entrepreneurs from Nepal and India. The team began work shortly after the earthquake and worked intensively to produce this manual. The design incorporates both practical experiences and scientific analysis for both Induced and Natural Draught Zig-Zag Fixed Chimney Brick Kiln. This manual includes engineered designs; two supplementary documents provide drawings and construction guidelines.
