Determining the U-Value of Façades Using the Thermometric Method: Potentials and Limitations [Article]
(MDPI AG, 2018)
The thermal transmittance of building envelopes determines to a large extent the energy demand of buildings. Thus, there is a keen interest in having methods which can precisely evaluate thermal transmittance. From a ...
Patents Analysis of Thermal Bridges in Slab Fronts and Their Effect on Energy DemandPatents Analysis of Thermal Bridges in Slab Fronts and Their Effect on Energy Demand [Article]
(Molecular Diversity Preservation International (MDPI), 2018-08-24)
Nowadays, the building sector is one of the main sources emitting pollutant gases to the atmosphere due to its deficient energy behaviour. Among the elements of the envelope, the thermal bridges are where the heat losses ...
A Comparative Analysis of the International Regulation of Thermal Properties in Building Envelope [Article]
To achieve the goals of reducing building energy consumption, regulations are being designed to guarantee the appropriate energy performance of buildings. Both European and South American countries establish requirements ...
Design Optimization of the Aeronautical Sheet Hydroforming Process Using the Taguchi Method [Article]
The aluminium alloy sheet forming processes forging in rubber pad and diaphragm presses (also known as hydroforming processes) are simple and economical processes adapted to aeronautical production. Typical defects of ...
