Approach to performance rating of retroreflective textile material considering production technology and reflector size
The study investigates retroreflective fabrics’ efficiency from the point of view of the interaction of their visibility, thermo-physiological comfort properties, and durability (represented by...
Preparation and characterization of capric-stearic acid/montmorillonite/graphene composite phase change material for thermal energy storage in buildings
A novel composite phase change material (PCM) of capric-stearic acid/montmorillonite (CA-SA/MMT) with thermal conductivity enhanced by graphene (GR) was prepared. It was characterized by FT-IR, XRD,...
Production of ceramic glass foam of low thermal conductivity by a simple method entirely from fly ash
Ceramic glass foam/foams (CGF) from two different F-class fly ashes were produced via a well-known simple conventional sintering method using sodium silicate (Na₂SiO₃) as a foaming and fluxing...
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....
Life cycle inventory and performance analysis of phase change materials for thermal energy storage
Solar energy is a renewable energy that requires a storage medium for effective usage. Phase change materials (PCMs) successfully store thermal energy from solar energy. The material-level life cycle...
