  • Quantitative internal infrared thermography for determining in-situ thermal behaviour of façades 

    Tejedor Herrán, Blanca; Casals Casanova, Miquel; Gangolells Solanellas, Marta; Roca Ramon, Xavier (2017-09-15)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The thermal behaviour of a building is often underestimated or neglected during its construction and operation stages. In recent years, the heat flux meter (HFM) method has been commonly used to determine the U-value, a ...
  • Implementation of predictive control in a commercial building energy management system using neural networks 

    Macarulla Martí, Marcel; Casals Casanova, Miquel; Forcada Matheu, Núria; Gangolells Solanellas, Marta (2017-09-15)
    Article
