G 'day All
Back at work MLW has just returned from the land of the long white cloud
HOT as hades at the moment even after a short tropical shower here in
the Riverina. I hope Lars has not burnt away in Adelaide.
Anyhow need some help as usual. We have a 5 star energy rating for our
local councils to promote and only approve houses with 3.5 stars and
above for building, big joke when you see the two story monsters going
up in suburbia at the moment. We have a client at the moment with an
unusual design for SB how unusual is that? He needs some back up for
thermal propertiesof straw bale walls other than hearsay. I have the
work by Joe McCabe:
It would be good and prudent to supply them with any other work on
thermal properties of SB so if any of you have any other work on this
please send details for all of us. At the moment the model for the
National Australian Energy Rating System (NATHERS) uses R1.5 for the
walls. Multiply by 5.5 to get the American R rating which I believe is
different from the UK R rating.
Anyhow let me know if I have my facts correct as all my files on this
subject were lost in the great disc crash of 2003.
Much appreciate any help from you.
Regards The Straw Wolf
