Fontos, hogy folyamatosan vizsgálják anyagot és az építés módja, hogy a lehető legjobb eredményeket sikerüljön elérni. Lehet, hogy a kender-szár vagy kóró önmagában használható tartó szerkezetileg és egy környezet barátabb választás lehet mint a fa?

Kísérleteket folytattak az Egyesült Királyságban a kender falak önmagukban szerkezethordó megerősítésére, amit magával a kender szárral érnének el. A szár elemzés megerősítette, hogy a kenderben megvan a potencia szerkezeti elemként az építőiparban. Ez azonban önmagában nem elég építési szabványokhoz.

The results of the column testing show an average maximum loading capacity of just over 14N/mm2Hemp can be compared closely to timber, achieving compressive and tensile strengths and an elastic modulus very similar to that of wood.

From this analysis it is possible to see that hemp has many potential applications as a structural frame. Perhaps its most efficient use would be within a space-frame structure. The examples discussed above could prove interesting as a possible reaction to Third World shelter demand. However, they are unlikely to be utilized in a developed country where housing standards and building regulations have to be met. A more complete building envelope, separating interior and exterior, cannot be provided solely by sticks or stalks. It is therefore important to find materials that work in symbiosis with hemp, creating a total solution.

This is a step by step guide to mixing the raw materials together needed for hemp-lime construction. To build your very own hemp house.

Three with hemp stalk frame and three with traditional lime-hemp were produced for compression testsThe lime is added and left to mix for a short amount of time

 

Seventeen blocks were produced in total. Three with hemp stalk frame and three with traditional lime-hemp were produced for compression tests, intended for a comparison of the two structures after two months of curing. At this time three more hemp stalk blocks underwent three-point bending tests. The extra sample blocks were produced for further testing after 180days (six months) of curing.
