Guidelines for thermal design of murocausts

    Project Details


    The aim of this project is to investigate and optimise heat storage in building components. Especially heat storage in concrete walls with embedded pipes will be studied. The first aim is to investigate the thermal behaviour of such heat storage. This will be done with numerical models and the results of these studies will be compared with existing results from laboratory measurements and field measurements. Next the influence of the storage on the heat demand of buildings will be studied. A numerical model of a building with a solar air system will be implemented in a numerical simulation program (TRNSYS). Simulations of different designs of the heat storage will be used for optimisation of the design of heat storage in concrete constructions. This will be used for development of guidelines for design of heat storage in concrete elements. Architects and engineers can use these guidelines in practical design situations and in that way ease the design of solar air systems
