This study investigates the effect of formulation, density and water content on the thermal conductivi ty of hemp concretes. The investigations are based on exp erimental measurements and on self-consistent scheme modelling. The thermal conductivity of studi ed materials ranges from 90 to 160 mW/(m.K) at (23°C; 50%HR). The impact of density on thermal con ductivity is much more important than the impact of moisture content. It is shown that the thermal c onductivity increases by about 54 % when… Expand
