Thermophysics and Mass Transfer in Materials Science and Construction
Collection of selected, peer reviewed papers from the 20th Thermophysics 2015, October 14-16, 2015, Terchova, Slovakia. The 30 papers reflect recent achievements on different problems of heat transfer in liquid, solid and gaseous substances and computational methods for their solving as well as methods of materials thermophysical properties measurements. Theoretical methods are illustrated with comprehensive examples from practical applications.
Keywords: Thermophysical Properties of Materials and Testing Methods, Thermal Performance and Material Properties, PCM Materials, Moisture Related Problems, Thermal Insulation Materials, Calorimetric Measurements, High Temperature Analysis, Composite Materials, Dynamic and Transient Measurements, Uncertainty Estimation
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Editors MEdved and Trnik present students, academics, researchers, and professionals working in a wide variety of contexts with a collection of peer-reviewed papers selected from research presented at the twentieth Thermophysics conference held in October of 2015 in Slovakia. The contributions that make up the main body of the text are devoted to in situ analysis of hygrothermal performance of the Sedlec Ossuary, diatomite/palm wax composite as a phase change material for latent heat storage, new approaches to the thermal design of energy saving buildings, and a wide variety of other related subjects.
