CCAT Clay-straw slip wall

23 bytes added, 21:19, 11 May 2010
Our testing consisted of building several 2x2ft test frames out of 2x6's.
We tested three different mixtures. They were straw and clay, wooden planar shavings and clay and mixture of all three. We attached plywood to either side of the test frames to create an infill space. <br />

After filling the forms and waiting approximately two days we removed the plywood. We gave the test walls about a week of drying time. <br />
