A numerical comparison of the impact of different climatic conditions in...

The aim of my research is to observe the variance of energy efficiency of a typical multi-story office building under the exposure of different climatic conditions. Energy efficiency requirements in building codes or energy standards are among the most important single measures for buildings’ energy...

Measuring the human body’s micro‐climate using a thermal manikin

The human body is surrounded by a micro‐climate which results from its convective release of heat. In this study, the air temperature and flow velocity of this micro‐climate were measured in a climate chamber at various room temperatures, using a thermal manikin simulating the heat release of the human...

Temperature reduction due to the application of phase change materials

Overheating is a major problem in many modern buildings due to the utilization of lightweight constructions with low heat storing capacity. A possible answer to this problem is the emplacement of phase change materials (PCM), thereby increasing the thermal mass of a building. These materials change their...
