Interior Insulation for Mass Masonry Buildings

Existing mass masonry buildings are often in need of upgrades to improve energy efficiency and effective function of the exterior walls for new interior uses. In many cases, interior insulation is considered as an option. In this presentation, we will review interior retrofit approaches and analysis tools for mass masonry buildings. We will provide insights on the pros and cons of various approaches by reviewing fundamental and practical considerations. The presentation will include a summary of risk assessment methods and the latest modeling tools being applied for these applications.
