Experimental data showing the thermal behavior of a flat roof with phase change material
The selection and configuration of building materials for optimal energy efficiency in a building require some assumptions and models for the thermal behavior of the utilized materials. Although the models for many materials ...
An experimental and numerical investigation on the use of phase change materials in building elements: The case of a flat roof in Istanbul
This paper reports on the experimental and numerical analysis of a building element-a flat roof-that incorporates phase change material (PCM) as a layer. First, a planar model of the building element of 50 cm by 50 cm ...
An evaluation methodology proposal for building envelopes containing phase change materials: the case of a flat roof in Turkey’s climate zones
(Taylor & Francis, 2017-09)
Phase change materials (PCMs) can be used to enhance the thermal energy storage capacity of a building element to improve indoor thermal comfort conditions and decrease energy usage, yet these effects need to be carefully ...
