Effect of thermal mass on performance of insulated building walls and the concept of energy savings potential
Abstract Effects of varying amount and location of thermal mass on dynamic heat-transfer characteristics of insulated building walls with same nominal resistance (Rn-value) are investigatedExpand
Optimized monthly-fixed thermostat-setting scheme for maximum energy-savings and thermal comfort in air-conditioned spaces
The present study deals with energy conservation in buildings via reduction of cooling-and-heating transmission loads through walls by optimizing the indoor air-temperature settings. MaximumExpand
Heat Transfer Characteristics and Optimum Insulation Thickness for Cavity Walls
The optimum thickness of insulation layers in cavity walls in buildings is determined under steady periodic conditions using the climatic data of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Different insulation materialsExpand
A MODIFIED STRONGLY IMPLICIT PROCEDURE FOR THE NUMERICAL SOLUTION OF FIELD PROBLEMS
A modified strongly implicit procedure for solving the system of algebraic equations that arise in the finite-difference or finite-analytic description of field problems is presented. The method isExpand
Effects of the initial condition on the axisymmetric free shear layer: Effects of the initial momentum thickness
Spurred by large discrepancies among previous data on the free shear layer, effects of the initial condition on the characteristic measures of an axisymmetric air free shear layer were investigatedExpand
Improving thermal performance of building walls by optimizing insulation layer distribution and thickness for same thermal mass
Dynamic thermal characteristics of insulated building walls with same thermal mass are studied numerically with optimized insulation thickness under steady periodic conditions using the climatic dataExpand
Optimum insulation thickness for building walls in a hot-dry climate
SYNOPSIS The optimum thickness of an insulation layer in a typical building wall is determined under steady periodic conditions using the climatic data of Riyadh. A finite-volume implicit procedure,Expand
Effect of electricity tariff on the optimum insulation-thickness in building walls as determined by a dynamic heat-transfer model
Thermal insulation is one of the most effective energy-conservation measures in buildings. Despite the widespread use of insulation materials in recent years, little is known regarding their optimumExpand
A three-dimensional modified strongly implicit procedure for heat conduction
The application of discretizatio n techniques frequently leads to a system of algebraic equations having a welldefined coefficient structure. A modified strongly implicit procedure for solving theExpand
Effect of Insulation Location on Initial Transient Thermal Response of Building Walls
