Re: GSBN:Re Thermal Properties of Straw Bale Walls



Nehemiah,

Here's a thought for the next (?) test:

Stack and finish a wall larger than the test panel, then chain saw
out a segment that fits. This creates the challenge of getting it
into the frame, but you get a more "average" wall.

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.

G ' day

You can avoid all the chain sawing, squishing and car jacking and
stuffing by going load bearing.
