Six cob wallettes were manufactured at the facilities of the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering Trinity College Dublin. Four LVDTs where attached to the middle third of the wallettes (two in each one of its faces) to measure the deformation caused by the load transfer to it by the tensioning of 4 steel threaded bars. The load applied to the wallettes was measured with load cells installed under every bar. The raw data is divided in three files. The first one contains all the data points collected during the first cycle loading for load (kN), and displacement (mm) for each wallette. The second file contains the same data collected during a second loading cycle (except for wallette W1). Finally, the third one contains data points collected during the consolidation period of five days for load (kN), displacement (mm) and time (min).
