Common Practice of Material Selection
The process common in building construction for the selection of building materials is analyzed. The criteria and material specifications in planning practice are determined by an analysis of planning data and a survey among the relevant stakeholders.
The result will be used as the basis for WP4.2 and as a starting point for the development of education and training in WP5. First, a selection of representative materials for the construction of exterior walls, in particular for the infill of the concrete skeleton construction most commonly used in Vietnam. While the properties of the bricks are used only by their r Production and do not depend on the processing on the construction site, the properties of the masonry mortar and plaster systems are strongly influenced by the on-site tempering process and the prevailing weather conditions. Therefore, these factors must be taken into account when selecting the building materials to be examined. I.e., both the typical formulations for mortar and plaster systems as well as the variation in the weather conditions at the construction site in the selection process take.
