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 ...

Autoclaved aerated concrete: experimental evaluation of its thermal properties at high temperatures

This article studied the thermal conductivity of samples of autoclaved aerated concrete with various densities at high temperatures in order to produce data that could be used to assess and predict the performance of buildings during a fire. The mica sensor was employed for high ...

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 ...

Thermal conductivity of engineered bamboo composites

The thermal properties of engineered bamboo products were investigated as these products show promise for use as building materials due to their improved mechanical properties over traditional timber building materials. It was determined that the thermal conductivity was lower for the bamboo materials than for ...

Cleaner production of the lightweight insulating composites: Microstructure, pore network and thermal conductivity

A porous matrix was prepared using low-density sawdust and a metakaolin-based geopolymer paste. The matrix was prepared in order to evaluate its performance as a thermally insulating building envelope. The matrices that had approximately 4 MPa of bi-axial four points flexural strength were prepared in a ...
