Abstract

The retrofit solutions studied herein aim to improve the seismic and energetic behaviours of existing masonry buildings to guarantee safety and the preservation of the building heritage. The retrofit consists of timber-based products (panels and strong-backs) fixed to the masonry walls using mechanical point-to-point connections; the durability and the hygrothermal performance of the solutions are guaranteed by insulation layers and membranes. The thermophysical properties of the retrofitted walls were evaluated by means of analytical and numerical analyses, considering the heat transmission in both steady and unsteady state conditions and the thermal bridge in correspondence with the corner of the wall. The in-plane seismic behaviour of the retrofitted walls was numerically investigated through nonlinear analyses. The influence of various parameters (such as masonry and insulation properties) on the performance of the retrofit solutions was analysed via parametric simulations.
