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 ...


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, ...

Increasing the Service Life of Bridge Decks by Incorporating Phase-Change Materials to Reduce Freeze-Thaw Cycles

The effects of incorporating phase change materials (PCMs) into concrete on the potential service lives of bridges were investigated. It was determined that PCMs could potentially be used in the future to reduce the effects of freeze-thaw cycles on bridges, but more work needed to ...

Thermal conductivity measurement by TPS analyzer 

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the ability of a transient plane source (TPS) method to measure thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, and volumetric heat capacity. Four samples were tested standard steel, linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), LLDPE with 5 wt% graphite composite, and LLDPE with 15 ...


Determination of the thermal transport properties of ammonia borane and its thermolysis product (polyiminoborane) using the transient plane source technique 

The purpose of this study was to measure the thermal properties of ammonia borane and polyiminoborane with the transient plane source (TPS) method to analyze their applicability to heat storage systems. Tests results showed that the thermal diffusivity and thermal conductivity of ammonia borane increased ...
