In buildings, to ensure the thermal comfort of the occupants and to keep the energyconsumption as low as possible, a correct design of the thermal system is necessary. To do so,an appropriate determination of the thermo-physical properties of the wall materials isneeded, particularly; new light-weight building technologies are widely used in theconstruction of the building envelope.One of these parameters, particularly important in Mediterranean climatic dynamic conditionsis the heat capacity, due to the presence of the sun’s energy contribution in hot and coldseasons.The value of the heat capacity in such like materials is typically quite different from thedeclared parameter, obtained in laboratory tests. To solve this problem, the authors propose asimple method for the evaluation of the specific heat capacity of the thermal properties of realscale building materials.
