How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
This dataset presents the thermal performance of building-integrated flat solar collectors with a uniform and multiple riser structure. The input data of the numerical model were obtained with the use of the PVGIS tool. Solar radiation and ambient temperature values at slopes 0°,45°, and 90° were extracted and used as boundary conditions. Numerical...
Hourly heat flux for variant boundary conditions of a novel controlled- temperature double skin façade (DSF) building element in a two- dimensional time- dependent study was determined. The building element is subjected to boundary conditions, characterizing different orientations (azimuth 0°, 90°, 180°, 270°) and climatic conditions of the four se...
This dataset consists of the hourly heat flux for four seasons and orientations of 15 different construction configurations of brick and stone masonry combined with insulation system solutions. The analysis was conducted with the use of Finite Element Modelling (FEM). The development of the models and the investigation of their thermal performance...
Half of the world’s population has been under lockdown to prevent the spread of COVID-19 pandemic, leading to a large shift of activities from offices to homes. Despite the inefficiencies exposed on the reliability of critical systems such as the energy system, this unprecedented situation also revealed opportunities for enhancing sustainability. T...
The Project “Novel integrated approach for Seismic and EneRgy upgrading of existing Buildings” (SupERB) aims to integrate innovative materials and determine techniques enabling the simultaneous upgrading of both seismic resistance and energy efficiency of existing buildings, to evaluate these techniques by testing both small and full-scale specimens, and propose a holistic and novel methodology for the optimum upgrading of existing buildings for seismic resistance and energy efficiency, taking into account economic, technical, geo-location, durability and environmental factors.
The "Active Building Temperature Adjustment Mantle" is an innovative product in development by CrossWise Ltd within the business innovation sponsorship framework. This product is a complete structural system which consists of a gap shell in which temperature-controlled air will be recycled. The air temperature regulation will be achieved through a heat pump connected to a geothermal system, thus ensuring the necessary conditions of thermal comfort inside the building by utilizing renewable energy sources. The air will circulate freely or forced inside the shell, depending on the temperatures prevailing outside the building and the external structural element's solar exposure. Free circulation will be achieved due to the temperature inside the shell, while for forced circulation fan elements will be utilized, where required. Also, the materials used for constructing the "Active Building Temperature Adjustment Mantle" will differ depending on the application (home, commercial building, industrial building).
