This chart shows the position of mycelian block in comparision to normally building materials from the aspects of Strength-Density, Density and cost. Strength measures the resistance of a material to failure, given by the applied stress (or load per unit area) Young’s modulus measures stiffness and is a material constant, i.e. it is the same whatever the size of the test-piece.
