Summary The following research has been undertaken as a response to the recent controversy regarding the suitability of rammed earth wall construction as an effective building envelope. Empirical (in-situ) measurements of temperature and heat flux are taken on the walls of an existing rammed earth building in New South Wales, Australia. An analysis is performed which examines the influence of walls, floor, ceiling and windows on the recorded temperatures within the building. It appears that diffuse sky radiation transmitted by the windows is an important factor in the summer heat load, and that night time cooling coupled with thermal mass has a valuable conditioning effect.
