Characterization of the structure, acoustic property, thermal conductivity, and mechanical property of highly expanded open-cell polycarbonate foams 

This study was conducted to determine if highly expanded open cell polycarbonate foams (PC) could be used as thermal insulation among other characteristics of the foam. This was accomplished through testing the PC foam with the Transient Plane Source (TPS) method. Multiple relative densities of foam were tested, and it was found that the higher the relative density the higher the thermal conductivity, and vice versa. The lower the relative ...

Insulation materials for the building sector: a review and comparative analysis

When referring to maximizing the energy efficiency of a building, one must first look at the contents of the structure: the make-up of the interior and exterior walls and the contents of the buildings envelope. Generally, when we think of insulation, we think of thermal insulation, which protects us from the blistering, hot days in summer to the dreaded cold days of winter. However, when constructing a building one must ...
