CEBs in a Humid Climate
(Redirected from CEBs in a Wet Climate)
- This page aims to determine how CEBs will work in a Humid Climate
- The definition of humid is relitively loose as of now
- To cure properly, moist environment is helpful - so a wetter climate should be more suitable for producing stabilized CEBs than a dry climate.
- NEEDS MORE RESEARCH
- As we expand into different classifications of climates (Areas with monsoons, rainforests etc) this data will be needed and/or gained by work there
- User:Eric lives currently in Florida which is sort of a mix between areas with "4 seasons" and areas with "Wet/Dry Seasons"
- Alvaro lives currently in Guadalajara
- A Czech Technical University in Prague Study on This Topic (Essentially dry, stabalization doesn't matter if enough pressure is used, damp/wet, it is near essential, but works well?)
- This paper states that high humidity may swell and eventually degrade unstabilized CEBs
- Paper also says that stabilization addresses such degradation (sCEBs)
OSE Case Studies
- In Missouri , unstabilized structures built in 2011 (the HabLab interior walls and the Workshop interior and exterior walls where they are protected from rain by overhangs) show zero erosion due to humidity
- Make bricks/a wall etc, leave in the enviroment of choice
- Perhaps test material properties destructively over time
