Have you seen the recently published OPEN ACCESS paper in Materials and Structures (MAAS) titled “Hygrothermal simulation of building performance: data for Scottish masonry materials”, authored by P.F.G. Banfill? It is a comprehensive analysis that categorises historic and contemporary masonry materials into 3 groups.
