Thesis
HERRERA GUTIERREZ-AVELLANOSA, D. 2016. Energy efficiency improvements in traditional buildings: exploring the role of user behaviour in the hygrothermal performance of solid walls. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Thermal improvement of traditional and historic buildings is going to play a crucial role in the achievement of established carbon emission targets. The suitable retrofit options for traditional buildings are, however, very limited and their long ter...

The nature of mass masonry granite walling and the potential for retrofit internal wall insulation strategies. (2013)
Journal Article
BUDA, G., TAYLOR, B. and BENNADJI, A. 2013. The nature of mass masonry granite walling and the potential for retrofit internal wall insulation strategies. Journal of building survey, appraisal and valuation [online], 2(1), pages 36-43. Available from: https://www.ingentaconn...00002/00000001/art00005

Traditional buildings constructed of solid granite walling that have timber framing with lath and plaster internal finish are not thermally efficient when compared with modern constructions. They are also termed hard-to-treat as they need special car... Read More about The nature of mass masonry granite walling and the potential for retrofit internal wall insulation strategies..
