In this study, time lags and decrement factors for different building materials have been investigated numerically. For this purpose, one dimensional transient heat conduction equation was solved using the Crank–Nicolson scheme under convection boundary conditions. To the outer surface of the wall, periodic boundary conditions were applied. Twenty-six different building materials were selected for analysis. The computations were repeated for eight different thickness of each material and the… CONTINUE READING
