Hannelore Derluyn, Peter Moonen, Jan Carmeliet & Hannelore Derluyn
Moisture transport in masonry is an important research subject in building physics related to durability issues such as cracking due to restrained shrinkage, frost damage, staining due to salt efflorescence or algae growth, salt damage due to crystallization; and is of particular interest for the renovation and construction industry. Moisture transfer in masonry, being a multi-layered material, is not as straightforward as in homogeneous porous material. A first aspect is the dependence of moisture transport...
