Phase Change materials (PCM) utilisation for energy retrofit of buildings
The aim of this work will be to analyse the improvement of the buildings energy behavior by means of the adoption of external walls built with PCM. The analysis will be performed on existing buildings located in different climatic conditions in order to quantify the energy savings both during summer and winter period. One or more layers of PCM will be considered. Moreover, the dynamic characteristics of the proposed walls will be studied.
