Durability studies on lightweight plaster and straw fiber based material for building thermal insulation

N. Belayachi, D. Hoxha & M. Slaimia
In this paper, the impact of freezing-thawing and wetting-drying cycles on the thermal and mechanical properties of a new straw-based composite is investigated. The material specimens used for accelerated aging were manufactured with two straw types: wheat and barley. The binder selected for the study was gypsum plaster. Only the optimized mixture was used to perform the accelerated aging tests. The durability of the insulation material was evaluated with accelerated aging through wetting-drying and freezing-thawing...
