Thermal Energy Storage Aggregate Using Low-Cost Organic Phase Change Materials
Abstract: This study demonstrated the positive impacts of low-cost PCMs in producing new building materials capable of providing excellent thermal insulation in summer, and great resisting...
Innovative glass-ceramic foams prepared by alkali activation and reactive sintering of clay containing zeolite (zeolite-poor rock) and sawdust for thermal insulation
Abstract: Energy-saving through thermal insulation of the buildings is becoming extremely important recently, addressing sustainability-connected challenges. This work examines the potential for...
Pickering emulsion of cellulose nanofibrils stabilized phase change materials for thermal management applications
Abstract: Phase change materials (PCM) has been increasingly used over the past decades to combat the large amount of energy needed for thermal comfort of human beings. Organic PCM is desired in...
Experimental evaluation of the luminescence performance of fired clay brick coated with SrAl2O4:Eu/Dy phosphor
Abstract: This study evaluates the luminescence performance of fired clay bricks coated with SrAl2O4:Eu/Dy phosphor. To do so, SrAl2O4:Eu/Dy phosphor was first produced using the traditional...
Building materials thermal conductivity measurement and correlation with heat flow meter, laser flash analysis and TCi
Abstract: The most important factor in the worldwide problem of global warming is the emission of carbon dioxide. The 23% of carbon dioxide emissions generated by building construction must be...
Ecofriendly chitosan-derived carbon aerogels based eutectic hydrated salts for good solar thermal energy storage and corrosion mitigation effect
Abstract: Emerging integrated latent heat storage and photothermal conversion have great potential to efficiently capture solar light and facilitate energy management. However, the energy conversion...
Air drying scalable production of hydrophobic, mechanically stable, and thermally insulating lignocellulosic foam
Abstract: Demand for sustainable building thermal regulation is driving the development of low carbon-intensive, renewable, and safe-to-use materials to substitute the dominant synthetic polymers and...
Ultrawideband Antenna Systems Embedded into a Load Bearing Wall for Connected Buildings
Abstract: The importance of indoor mobile connectivity has increased during the last years, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. In contrast, new energy-efficient buildings contain structures...
DEVELOPMENT AND THERMO-MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR OF CEMENT-BASED COMPOSITE FOR THE RUNWAY CONCRETE OF F-35B JOINT STRIKE FIGHTER
Abstract: The current study aims at increasing the strength and heat resistance of concrete that can be used in airport pavements for vertical take-off and landing of new generation F-35B combat...
