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

Author(s): , , ,

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 ...
