      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 ...
    • 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)
      Article
      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; ...
    • Study of the thermal properties and the fire performance of flame retardant-organic PCM in bulk form 

      Palacios Trujillo, Anabel; de Gracia Cuesta, Alvaro; Haurie Ibarra, Laia; Cabeza Fabra, Luisa Fernanda; Fernández Renna, Ana Inés; Barreneche, Camila (2018-01-12)
      Article
      Open Access
      The implementation of organic phase change materials (PCMs) in several applications such as heating and cooling or building comfort is an important target in thermal energy storage (TES). However, one of the major drawbacks ...
    • Use of multi-layered PCM gypsums to improve fire response. Physical, thermal and mechanical characterization 

      Serrano, Susana; Barreneche, Camila; Navarro Ezquerra, Antonia; Haurie Ibarra, Laia; Fernández Renna, Ana Inés; Cabeza Fabra, Luisa F. (2016-09-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      The building sector is one of the highest energy consumers representing around 30% of total energy use. One of the recommendations of the IEA (International Energy Agency) to reduce energy consumption in buildings is to ...
