Thermal probe technology for buildings: the transition from laboratory to field measurements

This article describes an attempt to modify the transient line source probe to be useful in making in-situ measurements in the field. The field of construction, as well as many others would benefit if a new thermal probe could be applied to uncontrolled environments. Three ...

Simultaneous measurements of thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of rock-marbles using transient plane source (TPS) technique

Knowing the thermophysical properties of insulating building materials is essential in understanding heat loss. In this study, the thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of five marble samples were measured using the transient plane source (TPS) technique and compared to results obtained through the transient hot ...

A newly composed paraffin encapsulated prototype roof structure for efficient thermal management in hot climate

This study highlights the ongoing search for sustainable and thermally suitable phase-change materials (PCMs), for hot weather building climates, such as Iraq. This new PCM must have an extraordinary heat and cold retention ability. Building industries are interested in using paraffin’s in their roofing ...

Bio-base polyurethane building material derived from lignin

This article describes a thorough investigation of the physical and thermal properties of lignin based polyurethane building materials. The materials were created with lignin polyol and isocyanate. Factors investigated included compressive strength, thermal conductivity, burning behaviour, and morphology. The authors determined that compressive strength depended ...

Possibilities of using thermal mass in buildings to save energy, cut power consumption peaks and increase the thermal comfort

The work presented in this thesis was performed in order to generate knowledge of heat storage in building structures. The goal was to discover what material could most effectively reduce peak powers required by buildings by keeping buildings warm or cool without the necessity of ...
