I'm working on an historical project in North America. The drawings show a two inch thickness of "split tile furring" in the exterior wall assembly. It is most probably terracotta clay tile with plaster.
I am wondering which material in WUFI Pro 5.3 best represents NON-HOLLOW terracotta clay tile.

There is no specific terracotta material in the 5.3 database neither is in 6.2. I would start with the old brick.

I am curious to how you came up with this suggestion of old brick. Are these material properties similar to clay tile?

You have only two choices
1) You have the important material for you specific clay tiles
2) You don't have them and need measurements to determine them (probably ASTM E96, C1498, C1794)
In both cases you want to use a similar material from the WUFI database and adjust the data set with these data from 1) or 2) and I think the old brick is the closest one.
