I do not know if is there any 'scientific' test, I have only to share my experience: ten years practicing & teaching and 46 sb building realized.
Tests many times are contradictory and often fail when they want to put natural materials into a table...

Are there scientific tests that show that compressing a wall actually benefits the insulation value or that provide a maximum compression level?
kind regards Tom Peeters

I have a fairly simple question? Is it necessarily to compress a
wall of strawbales which is supporting only itself. It is basicaly
an exterior strawbale wrapper of an existing brick wall. As far as
I can remember Kuba didn`t compress strawbales on his workshop on
ESBG in 2011. Can the strawbales sit-down after some years due to
its weight and make cracks to the exterior clay plaster? The
height of the wall is less than 3 meters.
