A series of measurements of the thermal conduct ance of vertical panels representing building walls have been made. The building panels contained shredded urea-formaldehyde foam at different densities. The results showed a linear decrease in the thermal conductance as the shredded foam density is in creased. © 1981, Sage Publications. All rights reserved.
