An frequency domain analysis method of thermal parameters unsteady-state detection of building wall
The in-situ inspection technology of thermal properties of building wall is an important technical guarantee to achieve the goal of building energy conservation. However, there is still a lack of...
Thermal insulation and hydrophobization of wood impregnated with silica aerogel powder
The aim of the study was to develop a simple and cost-effective method to improve thermal insulation and hydrophobicity of wood. Herein, we attempted to use commercially available silica aerogel...
Innovative sandwich panels made of wood bio-concrete and sisal fiber reinforced cement composites
This paper presents the results of the development of innovative sandwich panels made by combining wood bio-concretes and long sisal fibers reinforced composites. An experimental study of the wood...
Enhancing the mechanical and thermal properties of aerated geopolymer concrete using porous lightweight aggregates
Highlights Effect of EP lightweight aggregates on the properties of GFC is studied. EP reduces the amount of foam to achieve low density. Fine and homogenous distribution of air voids...
Wood Waste Incorporation for Lightweight Porcelain Stoneware Tiles with Tailored Thermal Conductivity
Highlights: Lightweight ceramic tiles were produced using wood wastes as porogen. Reduction in weight (up to 12.5%) and thermal conductivity (76%) was achieved. The environmental...
Chemical Retreating for Gel-typed Aerogel and Insulation Performance of Cement Containing Aerogel
This research identified the possibility of application as an insulation building material by mixing aerogels with the cement paste as well as their thermal performance. The aerogel is a very stable...
Effect of various curing methods and addition of silica aerogel on mortar properties
Mechanical and thermal properties and porosity of aerogel-incorporated mortars exposed to various curing conditions (curing by wetting-drying, curing by magnesium sulphate (MgSO4), and water curing)...
Auto-coherent homogenization applied to the assessment of thermal conductivity: case of sugar cane bagasse fibers and moisture content effect
Auto-coherent homogenization is used to evaluate the thermal conductivity of sugar cane bagasse fibers in vegetable fibers/cement composites. The moisture content effect on the thermal conductivity...
Multi-scale analysis on thermal properties of cement-based materials containing micro-encapsulated phase change materials
The incorporation of phase change materials (PCMs) in building envelopes for passive thermal storage can enhance the thermal mass effect and thereby reduce energy consumption. In this investigation,...
