Adiabatic property of plywood wall panel was examined to evaluate their thermal conductivities. The amount of heat loss was investigated through overall heat transmission experiment. Styroform and grass wool showed less heat loss. However, yellowsoil board and laminated lumber showed high volume specific heat capacity. When the changes of indoor and outdoor temperature were checked in model house, wall manufactured with styroform and grass wool was affected easily by the changes of outdoor temperature. Yellowsoil, the mixed board of yellowsoil and sawdust, and laminated lumber, which have high volume specific heat capacity, were not affected much. The rates of overall heat transmission were much better in styroform and grasswool, but the adiabatic properties were much higher in yellowsoil board and the mixed board of yellowsoil and sawdust. The results showed that the insulating material can be developed using yellowsoil and wood, which are nature friendly materials.
