Re: GSBN:Compression

Hola Maren, hola todo(a)s!
an  approach that is simple for good nebraska walls compression, is using
the roofs weight as "passive" compression unit (as I saw in Denmark and
France, on 3 different houses).
In this case no tie-down is been used, and the important point is the even
repartition of weights along the walls (wich excludes a certain diversity
for the roof shape, architecturally speaking).  After a week or two the roof
has compressed the wall enough so we can start renders and plastering.
This is not quit valid if th e projected roof is to be of very light
materials: there will be a smaller compression of course, and it will not
"hold" the walls by its weight, but rather by the strength of its connection
points, and eventual horizontal triangulation.
 The bigger (or complex) the project, the greater control you want on
levels, compression, etc. On a simple , rectangled or square house about 80
sq. meters maximum, it would be ok to do so.

Hi all,

 does somebody know which pressure per area  it's needed to compress
Nebraska-walls? Or can you tell me which pressure are you normally using?
I'm looking after essays and tests which work with this item, I couldn't
find technical information about that.
 Thanks a lot.
