Abstract

The aim of these lab tests was to identify six material parameters of the masonry of the historic building at Dr Sellsvej 39, Building 9 in 4293 Dianalund (build in 1928) before refurbishing it with internal insulation. The brick parameters are crucial to investigate the performance of various insulation types by the mean of hydrothermal simulations with the hydrothermal simulation software “Delphin”. All tests were carried out in the laboratory at DTU.
One brick and a specimen of mortar were taken out of the wall for further use in the lab. For the brick, six material parameters were determined in the lab. The mortar samples were tested for two parameters.
