AbstractThis note summarizes recent results of testing of cellulose fibre insulation (CFI) at DBR/NRCC. Based on these results it proposes two simplified and less time consuming methods for determining the density after settlement, which is termed the design density. It also discusses methods suitable for quality control of design density and thermal resistance.
