Re: GSBN:Re Thermal Properties of Straw Bale Walls



John,

You are right.  ...for actual buildings.  Still, for a test, load bearing
does not solve the problem.  The wall segments tested WERE load bearing.
The problem is that you need a tight fit between the edges (top, bottom,
and sides) of the wall segment and your surround panels of known
conductivity.  Otherwise, you get less insulative areas that screw up the
"average" conductivity results.
