Research on Thermal Comfort of Crystal Sandstone Light Ceramics
The thermal properties of the crystal sandstone light ceramic products, nature sandstones, tiles and composite floorboards were analyzed and compared in detail by scanning electron microscope (SEM) and thermal simulation method. The results show that the different thermal properties are the main factors which lead to the different thermal comfort to these materials. It is analyzed in theory that the good thermal comforts of the crystal sandstone light ceramics are come from the low thermal conductivity and low density mainly. And the thermal simulation is a reference method on the thermal comfort research of architectural ceramics.
