This paper provides the design method to realize a human-powered press for continuous production of high-density straw bales, necessary for the realization of load bearing housing moules. Particular attention is directed to the simplicity of the press mechanical structure in order to make possible its construction in developing countries. The design process is fully described, then the use of a prototype press for the realization, with high-density rice straw bales, of a load bearing housing module is presented and the results are commented.

Abstract

This paper provides the design method to realize a human-powered press for continuous production of high-density straw bales, necessary for the realization of load bearing housing moules. Particular attention is directed to the simplicity of the press mechanical structure in order to make possible its construction in developing countries. The design process is fully described, then the use of a prototype press for the realization, with high-density rice straw bales, of a load bearing housing module is presented and the results are commented.
