  • Addition of microencapsulated PCM into single layer mortar: physical and thermal properties and fire resistance 

    Bosch González, Montserrat; Haurie Ibarra, Laia; Cabeza, Luisa F.; Serrano, Susana; Fernández, Ana Inés (2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The energy consumption in buildings has increased in the last years due to the energy demand for thermal comfort. The improvement of thermal properties in building materials is one of the key points to achieve a reduction ...

    Organic PCM stands for an alternative to the enhancement of thermal inertia inside buildings. In contrast, its fire reaction is an inconvenient for being used in thermal energy storage. This study focuses on evaluating ...
  • Review of the use of phase change materials (PCMs) in buildings with reinforced concrete structures 

    Pons Valladares, Oriol; Aguado de Cea, Antonio; Fernández, Ana Inés; Cabeza, Luisa; Chimenos, Josep Maria (Instituto Técnico de la Construcción y del Cemento, 2014-09-01)
    Open Access
    Phase change materials are capable of storing and releasing energy in the form of heat in determined temperature ranges, so to increase a building's thermal inertia, stabilize its indoor temperatures and reduce its energetic ...
  • Single layer mortars with microencapsulated PCM: study of physical and thermal properties, and fire behaviour 

    Serrano, Susana; Bosch González, Montserrat; Haurie Ibarra, Laia; Cabeza Fabra, Luisa F.; Fernández, Ana Inés (2016-01-01)
    Open Access
    tPhase change materials are a promising strategy to reduce energy consumption in a wide range of appli-cations including the building sector. Many studies have been done to evaluate the impact of PCM onthermal properties ...
  • Study of fresh and hardening process properties of gypsum with three different PCM inclusion methods 

    Serrano, Susana; Barreneche, Camila; Navarro Ezquerra, Antonia; Haurie Ibarra, Laia; Fernández, Ana Inés; Cabeza, Lluïsa F (2015)
    Open Access
    Gypsum has two important states (fresh and hardened states), and the addition of phase change materials (PCM) can vary the properties of the material. Many authors have extensively studied properties in the hardened state; ...
