Presents an overview of current research studies, performed in different countries, focused on PCM-enhanced building envelopes
History of PCM applications in buildings.- Overview of basic PCM products used in buildings - encapsulation and packaging methods.- Overview of PCM-enhanced building products worldwide.- Heat transfer in PCM-enhanced building components.- Laboratory and field testing of PCM-enhanced building products and systems.- Thermal and energy modeling of PCM-enhanced building envelopes.- Climate impact on energy performance of PCM-enhanced building envelopes.- Cost reduction analysis for PCM-enhanced building products.- Economical analysis of PCM applications in North American buildings.- PCM-building-product data base.
Presenting an overview of the use of Phase Change Materials (PCMs) within buildings, this book discusses the performance of PCM-enhanced building envelopes. It reviews the most common PCMs suitable for building applications, and discusses PCM encapsulation and packaging methods. In addition to this, it examines a range of PCM-enhanced building products in the process of development as well as examples of whole-building-scale field demonstrations. Further chapters discuss experimental and theoretical analyses (including available software) to determine dynamic thermal and energy performance characteristics of building enclosure components containing PCMs, and present different laboratory and field testing methods. Finally, a wide range of PCM building products are presented which are commercially available worldwide. This book is intended for students and researchers of mechanical, architectural and civil engineering and postgraduate students of energy analysis, dynamic design of building structures, and dynamic testing procedures. It also provides a useful resource for professionals involved in architectural and mechanical-civil engineering design, thermal testing and PCM manufacturing.
