Abstract: Main Goals: - To evaluate how PCMs can be used to improve the energy performance of different typologies of residential buildings (lightweight steel-framed and heavyweight constructions) in different climates; -To develop a methodology for the dynamic simulation of energy in buildings considering the influence of latent heat from the phase change processes; - To develop a methodology for the assessment of the heat transfer through small thermal energy storage (TES) units to be used in the design of new construction solutions.
