Initial Material Characterization of Straw Light Clay
Straw Light Clay (SLC) is a contemporary variant of earth building techniques used by advanced civilizations for thousands of years. The purpose of the research is to assess the viability of this material for Canadian climates and to specifically investigate fire resistance, shrinkage and swelling, compression and bending and density. Initial results indicate SLC has many worthwhile properties.
