Incorporation of Phase Change Materials in Cementitious Systems via Fine Lightweight Aggregate

The incorporation of phase change materials (PCMs) into concrete bridge decks shows promise as a method of decreasing freeze/thaw cycling in bridge decks. The authors have conducted a study to determine the best carrier to be used for the incorporation of PCMs into concrete, ...

A simple dynamic measurement technique for comparing thermal insulation performances of anisotropic building materials

The authors have presented a review of steady-state and transient measurement techniques for the determination of thermal conductivity, and have introduced a new method for the determination of thermal transport properties in anisotropic building materials, known as the dynamic adiabatic technique. It was found that ...

Experimental determination and fractal modeling of the effective thermal conductivity of autoclaved aerated concrete: Effects of moisture content

Autoclaved aerated concrete was studied because it has potential to be used in the design of energy-efficient buildings. Three different samples were tested, each with a unique density. Of particular interest to this work was the thermal conductivity of the samples, as this material would ...

Fabrication of paraffin-SiO2 shape-stabilized composite phase change material via chemical precipitation method for building energy conservation

The authors have prepared a shape-stabilized composite phase change material (ss-CPCM) using paraffin encapsulated in SiO2. SiO2 was chosen because of its low cost, such that the resultant ss-CPCM would be a feasible option for use at the commercial or industrial scale. The composite was ...

Design of thermal hybrid composites based on liquid crystal polymer and hexagonal boron nitride fiber network in polylactide matrix

As electronics get smaller and more powerful, the packaging that contains them must in turn become lighter with higher thermal conductivity and electrical resistivity. This study tested the effect of adding highly concentrated hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) fibers to liquid crystal polymer. The fibers were ...
