AbstractThe principal function of a building is to shelter its occupants and its contents from the weather - a fact that's widely appreciated in a country like Canada, with its geographical variations and climatic extremes. Of course, in serving this function, the building envelope - walls, windows and roof - plays a central role in separating the inside from the outside. This article focuses principally on walls.
