Modelling of thermal rock mass properties at the potential sites of a Swedish nuclear waste repository

This article looked at the simulation model used to control temperature evolution in the field for Swedish nuclear waste repositories. Heat transport properties of rock are known key factors for the repository layout and were measured using the Transient Plane Source (TPS) method. Compared to ...

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 ...

The use of slag stone concrete to improve the thermal performance of light steel buildings

The purpose of this article was to investigate the thermal performance of light steel structures. Responsible and sustainable building practices are becoming the norm, and light steel can provide a good alternative to other construction materials. However, it is important that the finished building has ...

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 ...

Influence of the volume fraction and the nature of fine lightweight aggregates on the thermal and mechanical properties of structural concrete

The thermal and mechanical properties of concrete in which normal weight aggregate has been substituted with lightweight aggregates were investigated. The properties were found to be dependent on the volume fraction of the lightweight aggregate, as well as on the nature and quality of the ...
