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 ...

A combined finite-discrete element method for calculating the effective thermal conductivity of bio-aggregates based materials

This study used a two part process to create a system that would predict the thermal conductivity of insulated building materials containing plant materials. A finite-discrete element method was used to predict the thermal conductivity of a packed bed of sunflower pith, while a discrete ...

Effect mechanism of mixing on improving conductivity of asphalt solar collector

Asphalt solar collector (ASC) is a conductive asphalt concrete and an eco-friendly method to de-ice roadways. This study examined if the addition of conductive fillers and various mixing parameters could improve the thermal conductivity and energy efficiency of ASC. A thermal conductivity system measured the ...
