Abstract

Straw bale construction is considered an appropriate technique for improving housing condition in developing Countries and for rebuilding in emergency condition. However, balers suitable for this purpose are not available nowadays. This paper presents a method for functional design of a human powered baler for straw bale building, based on the straw mechanical characteristic, experimentally measured. A prototype has been realized and tested.
