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 ...

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 ...

Strategy for visualisation of the activity of phase change materials by transient plane source technique

Phase change materials (PCMs) are materials that store thermal energy and undergo phase transitions when they are heated and cooled, making them effective alternatives to fossil fuels for building insulation. To determine the energy performance of PCMs in infrastructure it is important to understand their ...

Measuring anisotropic thermal properties of metagranite at different scales

This study outlines the design of a final repository for nuclear waste in bedrock, by the Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company. Thermal property testing is required to determine the canister separation distance within the repository. The transient plane source thermal constants analyzer was ...

Using transient plane source sensor for determination of thermal properties of vacuum insulation panels

Researchers at the Chalmers University of Technology used the transient plane source (TPS) method to propose a technique for testing layered materials of a low conductive core, coated in a highly conductive thin film. The accuracy of the method to evaluate isotropic materials was tested ...

Mechanical and thermo-physical properties of high-density polyethylene modified with talc

High-density polyethylene-talc-carbon black composites were prepared with varying amounts of talc to determine its effect on the thermo-physical properties of the composites. Carbon black was added in a content of 3.5 wt. % because it was previously determined that the mechanical properties of the composites were depreciated ...

Determination of specific heat capacity by transient plane source

This study developed a model that used a transient plane source (TPS) sensor to measure the specific heat capacity of anisotropic materials. The underside of a sample holder with a diameter of 20 mm, and a height of 5 mm was attached to a Kapton TPS sensor. ...
