I am curious what the relationship is between cavity depth, rated insulation, and effective insulation in framed walls.  I am referencing the ASHRAE 90.1 doc because it is really the only one I have on this subject.  I have charted Table A9.2B and a logarithmic trendline appears to be a good fit for extrapolating.  If anyone in academia, industry, or the societies has more information on this subject I would certainly be grateful to receive a good lead.  Thank you.
