GreenSpec: Thermal Performance: Thermal Mass in Buildings

SAP and thermal mass. SAP 2009 uses thermal mass in calculating the heating and cooling load of the building. SAP uses the kappa (k) value to determine thermal mass. 'k' is the measure of the heat capacity per unit area in kJ/m 2 K of the 'thermally active' part of the construction element:. k = 10-6 Σ i p i c i d i. p i = the density of the layer 'i' in the construction (kg/m 3)

Assessment of thermal mass property for energy efficiency ...

Therefore, the main thermal mass-related design emphasis needs to be on its implementation in the building envelope. Energy efficiency and thermal comfort are generally conflicting criteria in building design in that the more the energy is saved, the less is the thermal comfort.

Thermal mass - Wikipedia

Oct 26, 2010· The operation of buildings represents 40% of the total energy consumption in Europe. The main energy benefit of using concrete in buildings is its high thermal mass that leads to thermal stability. According to the European Concrete Platform, this saves energy and produces a better indoor climate/environment for building occupants and users.

Passive Solar Home Design | Department of Energy

Passive solar design takes advantage of a building's site, climate, and materials to minimize energy use. A well-designed passive solar home first reduces heating and cooling loads through energy-efficiency strategies and then meets those reduced loads in whole or part with solar energy. Because of the small heating loads of modern homes it is very important to avoid oversizing south-facing ...
