Study on the Effects of Porosity and Holes Form on the Energy Conservation of Wall Material


Article Preview

In this paper, the form of perforated brick holes under different thermal conductivity were measured. To meet the strength required in the circumstances, as a scientific experiment to find an appropriate form of holes, porosity in order to meet the current rate of energy saving requirements. Experimental results show that the number of holes, size, shape, all affect the size of the thermal conductivity. Finally, several experiments are compared to find a suitable type.
