When I get it copied I shall.

Boy, if I ever see Beel you can be sure I'm going to make him write 1000
times on the chalkboard, :
"I will remember to <snip> redundant material when responding to
messages sent to the GSBN List"
I'm not sure what Beel has but for those who are able to read en francais,
you may be interested in a somewhat related document from May 1999, a report
from Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. (CMHC) entitled :
"Construction en blocs de terre comprimee "
by Ginette Dupuy, B.Arch, M.Sc.A.
It provides test data for 5 different earthen mixes
with properties including :
(iii) resistance thermique
(iv) chaleur massive
(v) gel et degel
(vii) absorption de l'eau
(viii) resistance en compression (blocs)
(ix) (resistance en compression (prisms)
The cost of the report is $10 for non-Canadians (I think)
and may be ordered by sending a message to the Canadian Housing Information
Centre (CHIC) at CMHC.
or on the web
If someone here is willing to translate it into English, I suspect that the
people at CMHC wouldn't mind at all if the translation were to be made
available to all who are interested (ie all the people on this List) but it
might be a good idea to get CMHC's "OK" first. CMHC didn't bother
translating the original because they suspected that the demand for the
report would be minimal. It'd be nice to prove them wrong.
