Effect from a Variable U-Value in Adaptive Building Components with Controlled Internal Air Pressure

In an environment that experiences drastically changing temperatures it is potentially more energy efficient to use insulative walls that can change their apparent thermal conductivities. This paper suggests a nano-porous material able to change its thermal conductivity by a factor of 3 varying the pressure upon ...

Potential applications of nanofluids for heat transfer

Multiple studies claiming the usefulness of nanofluids for the enhancement of heat transport have been proven ill-founded. Although they have significantly raised thermal conductivities, there is an inerrant increase in viscosity when adding nanoparticles to a liquid. This paper explores areas of research that analyze ...

Hydronic Pavement Heating for Sustainable Ice-Free Roads

Hydronic Pavement (HP) is a potential alternative method of spreading sand and salt on slippery road surfaces through embedded pipes that circulate brine, oils, or glycol-water. The present study analyzes the thermal properties involved in designing a HP system. The transient plane source method was ...
