GSBN:Fwd: Straw-Bale Walls

G 'day Balesr

Can some of you help this English Chap please.  I have sent him some test

Regards John Glassford.

I am designing the structural elements for auctions rooms near Stansted
airport England.

The main timber frames span 14metres and the external walls are to be straw
bales between timber posts. Panel sizes of walls are 4.1m wide x 2.5 metres
high maximum.
 No problem with that, but if you have any information on racking resistance
of the bales, this would be very useful  in justifying  to our local

Many thanks  Ian
