Abstract: Uniform Harnack inequalities for harmonic functions on the pre-and graphical Sierpinski carpets are proved using a probabilistic coupling argument. Various results follow from this, including the construction of Brownian motion on Sierpinski carpets embedded in $ {\mathbb{R}^d}$, $ d \geq 3$, estimates on the fundamental solution of the heat equation, and Sobolev and Poincaré inequalities.
