Chapter

Abstract

Walls to buildings can be constructed in various ways using a variety of materials. In order to appreciate the different constructional techniques and their relative merits, it is necessary to know the functions of walls in various locations. The principal methods used in the construction of both external and internal walls and partitions are examined in some detail.
