Building with Paper/Cardboard

Post by g_gro » Thu Jun 16, 2022 9:29 pm -1100


I am currently writing my bachelors thesis on the topic of building with paper. I am developing an external wall construction made of paper materials such as solid board, corrugated cardboard and honeycomb cardboard with an optimised building climate performance. I want to simulate it in WUFI Plus. However, there is not a lot of data on paper materials I could use. Is there ongoing research on the properties of paper materials or solutions on how to approximate paper wall constructions?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Gioia,
we do not have material data for cardboard. Maybe search the web if you can find some material properties or ask the manufacturer if there are some.
I do not know about research on cardboard, but this does not mean, there is no.
