Abstract:

This paper describes the background to certain changes which are proposed in the 1970 I.H.V.E. Guide. Information obtained from U-value measurements in the BRS Wall and Roof Laboratories was used to improve the procedure for calculating U-values. The paper includes standard values for surface resistances, and for moisture contents and thermal conductivities of masonry materials to be used for calculating standard U-values. Author
