Abstract

The interior walls of all buildings in general and the external walls in particular performs a major role in buildings, both in financial point of view and in the role they play in daily habits. External walls must provide acoustical and thermal comfort, protection and security and must be long-lasting and meet the all requirements. Brick masonry has been the elected material for the execution of external walls as it has paid an important role in buildings since first civilizations. Nowadays, most external walls are built with double wall layers with an inner thermal insulation and ventilation space. Certainly, the complexity that involves a building of this kind of walls increases the possibility of several changes. As a matter of fact, the normal evolution of the buildings outside should involve the use of simple layers. It means a lower complexity in execution and less time waste which leads to economical savings as far as workmanship is concerned.
