Evaluation of innovative thermal insulation systems for a sustainable envelope

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The paper presents the results of the research on thermal insulation systems for the buildingcasing. We present the results of computer simulations that have enabled us to verify andoptimize the transmission of heat through several innovative insulation systems, such asvacuum solutions for transparent façades, or the possibilities offered by the recycling of wastematerial of Opunthia Ficus Indica (prickly pear) pruning, which, properly treated, allowed toobtain an insulating material (Patent n. 1402131), in the form of panels or bulk grains (thermalcoefficient values 0.0710.057W/mK).
