Subject: SB Research Needs

MJ, GSBN, and others,
This is the research list I tried to attach.
A while back I gathered this list together from various reading sources
and conversations regarding research needed for straw bale construction
techniques, materials, etc. I've been trying to gather together
informaton on selected topics, as listed. I assume others have been
doing the same.

The other was a message from John Salmen which should be accessible from
the archives...Date: Wed, 31 Dec 1997 14:30:11 -0800

Hope this helps!

I would like to add the following topics to Joyce Coppingers extensive list;

moisture retardents on exterior and interior stucco

strategies to deal with very wet and mild climates

sound insulation field measurements

thermal insulation field measurements related to rho and RH values possibly
also incorporating other factors
