just found another test in my files I think it's German they tested a
strawbale wall (Wooden frame construction with
straw bales) with inside clay plaster and outside lime plaster. The result
was 90 minutes fire resistance. Have a look
at www.grat.at and go to "Publikationen". You can find the test certificate
under "Wandsystem aus Nachwachsenden
Rohstoffen", go to "Anhang" for download as pdf file. The characteristics of
the wall are shown in some diagrams.

Subject: [Strawbale]question for information about loadbearing strawbale

I need information on loadbearing strawbale construction; tests being done,
experiences that people have when they ask for a permit to build a
strawbale house, rules from the fire-brigade etc. I need the information to
convince the local council from Wageningen (Holland) to say yes to a
projekt. Can anybody help me?
Bye! Leontine.
