Title Research into the Thermal Performance of Traditional Brick Walls
Summary Global pressures to reduce energy use are on the increase. Traditional buildings are often seen as energy inefficient and there are pressures to adapt them to improve their thermal performance. To better understand the performance of traditional and historic buildings and elements and the need and scope for upgrading English Heritage has been commissioning a series of research projects. This report presents the finds of two studies undertaken during 2010-12 by Glasgow Caledonian University and English Heritage, which focussed on the thermal performance of brick walls, as this is the form of construction most commonly encountered in traditional buildings in England.
