Energy-saving contribution of the thermochromic coating in exterior walls in hot-summer and cold-winter zone
Abstract: In this study, the improvement efficiency of the thermochromic coating was analyzed comprehensively on the thermal performance of exterior walls by regulating solar radiation absorptivity...
Improvement of Window Thermal Performance Using Areogel Insulation Film for Building Energy Saving
Abstract: In buildings, windows have a major influence on space heating demand and indoor environment both with respect to climate and daylight. To reduce the window coefficient of the overall heat...
Evaluation of the mechanical performance and sustainability of rubberized concrete interlocking masonry prism
Abstract: Waste materials may be used as raw materials for interlocking masonry products in order to contribute to sustainable development and environmental protection. Rubberized concrete...
Production and characterization of natural clay‑free green building brick materials using water treatment sludge and oak wood ash
Original abstract: The experimental study investigates the feasibility of using two extensively waste (wastewater treatment sludge and oak wood ash) as raw materials in the manufacture of clay-free...
Basalt fiber-reinforced foam concrete containing silica fume: An experimental study
Abstract: Foam concrete refers to a type of low-density concrete that is commonly known to have favorable insulation and thermal performance due to its intentionally increased porosity. However, foam...
Physical, Thermal and Microstructural Characterization of Earth Mortars Stabilized with Incorporating Air Additive
In recent years, the search for non-conventional materials has intensified, aiming to reduce environmental impacts in the civil construction sector as a strategy for more sustainable development....
Preparation of a Sustainable Shape-Stabilized Phase Change Material for Thermal Energy Storage Based on Mg²⁺-Doped CaCO₃/PEG Composites
The properties of polyethylene glycol-6000 (PEG)/MgCaCO₃, a low-cost shape-selective phase change material (ss-PCM), make it highly suitable for solar thermal applications. Nanosized porous...
Earth-based mortars: mix design, mechanical characterization and environmental performance assessment
The incorporation of sustainable materials in the civil construction sector has grown in recent years to minimize environmental impacts. Among these materials, the use of earth, a local raw material...
Experimental research to evaluate the percentage change of thermal and mechanical performances of bricks in historical buildings due to moisture
The presence of moisture inside building materials decreases their thermal and mechanical performances. Knowing the variability of these properties as a function of saturation is essential both to...
