AbstractThis paper is one in a series to present information generated from a research project conducted jointly by the National Research Council Institute for Research in Construction (NRC-IRC) and the polyurethane industry (contractors, and material suppliers) to assess the overall performance of insulated walls. In an earlier paper [3], the authors presented a brief outline of the project objectives and a limited set of results of two walls that were available at that time. A second paper presented at an ASTM Symposium [4], where the test results of six walls were presented. These walls included glass fiber poly-sealed (two reference walls) as well as four walls of medium density foam (closed cell foam) insulation.
