Developing New Components to Improve Energy Savings in Buildings by Using Phase Change Materials
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper is presented a general overview of studies which aim at developing new components to be used in buildings to improve energy savings without decreasing human thermal comfort. The main features of these studies are reminded and the paper is focused on the realisation and test of honeycomb panels filled with PCMs. Thermal response of panels is determined with a specific test bench and PCM effects are clearly shown. Modelling and numerical simulation allowed us to interpret experimental results.
