WBDG is a gateway to up-to-date information on integrated 'whole building' design techniques and technologies. The goal of 'Whole Building' Design is to create a successful high-performance building by applying an integrated design and team approach to . Knowledge of thermal conductivity and interfacial thermal conductance and their variation with temperature are critical for the design of thermal systems. In this paper, we review measurement techniques for characterizing thermal conductivity and interfacial thermal conductance of solid-state materials in both bulk and thin film forms. Figure by:

In this paper we evaluate the thermal performance of a range of modern wall constructions used in the residential buildings of Tehran in order to find the most appropriate alternative to the traditional un-fired clay and brick materials, which are increasingly being replaced in favor of more slender wall constructions employing hollow clay, autoclaved aerated concrete or light expanded clay Cited by: Characteristics of Building Insulation Materials.

Abstract. In this chapter, methods for the experimental determination of thermal properties of building envelopes are presented.

These methods are used for commissioning, the process performed by independent experts prior to handling over the building to the customer, in the process of energy labelling of the buildings or to evaluate the most cost effective measures for the Author: Sašo Medved, Suzana Domjan, Ciril Arkar.

The paper describes an evaluation of thermal performance of residential building envelope. Basing on the visual-and-instrumental inspection the conclusion on the non-compliance of the stated object with the requirements of the design and normative documentation was drawn.

The thermovision control allowed revealing latent defects of the buildings envelopes and outlining the ways of their by: Latent defects of building envelope can be revealed through modern non-destructive methods of thermovision control [8, 10, 14, 16, 17, 20].

The calculated evaluation of thermotechnical indices of building envelope basing on numerical modeling makes it possible to outline the ways of building thermal performance enhancement [5, 9, 10—13, 18, 19].
