Technical Paper 37: Hygrothermal Properties of Scottish Masonry Materials

This paper has been commissioned to report on a series of basic tests carried out on mortars and masonry types common in Scottish domestic buildings. 

The objective has been to begin to establish baseline material properties for traditional materials, so that hygrothermal modelling such as WUFI can have more accurate inputs and give better outcomes.
