The growing consumption of fossil energy resources increases greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). To meet the industry sector's target of reducing GHG emissions by 49% in 2030, relative to the levels in 1990, there is a need for energy storage. Energy storage offers a potential solution to enhance the utilization of renewable energy, by addressing...

Due to environmental concerns, bio-based materials are being increasingly investigated and used in buildings. In general, the density of these materials, and thus their thermal inertia, is low. Thermal inertia can be beneficial for reducing the energy use of buildings by damping indoor temperature fluctuations or by reducing and delaying...

The present study compares a modified variable height fin heat sink with the conventional constant height fin heat sink. The two heat sinks are filled with an equal volume of PCM (n-eicosane) and a fin volume fraction of 8 %. The experiments are performed for constant loads and also different power surge conditions. The pulsed heat loads are...

Solid-liquid phase transformation of a phase change material in a rectangular enclosure with corrugated fins is studied. Employing a physics-based model, the influence of fin length, thickness, and wave amplitude on the thermal and fluid flow fields is explored. Incorporating fins into thermal energy storage systems enhances the heat transfer...

In de utiliteitsbouw hebben duurzaam en energiezuinig bouwen een sterke invloed op het ontwerp van de gevel en de klimaatinstallatie. In bepaalde situaties kan het raadzaam zijn om een zogeheten tweedehuid façade toe te passen. Hierbij wordt de gevel niet – zoals bij de klimaatgevel – met binnenlucht, maar met buitenlucht geventileerd. Om na te...
