Title
An Experimental Study on the Thermal Performance of Phase-ChangeMaterial and Wood-Plastic Composites for Building Roofs
Description
This research was supported by the Basic Science Research Programthrough the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF), funded by theMinistry of Science, Information and Communications Technologies (ICT)and Future Planning (2014R1A1A1004131). This is research was supportedby a grant (16CTAP-C078014-03) from the Infrastructure andtransportation technology promotion research program funded by theMinistry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport of Korean government.
abstract
We assessed the usefulness of phase-change material (PCM)-based thermal plates fabricated from wood-plastic composites (WPCs) in mitigating the urban heat island effect. The thermal performance of plates containing PCMs with two different melting temperatures and with two different albedo levels was evaluated. The results showed that the PCM with a melting temperature of 44 degrees C maintained lower surface and inner temperatures than the PCM with a melting temperature of 25 degrees C. Moreover, a higher surface albedo resulted in a lower surface temperature. However, the thermal performance of PCMs with different melting temperatures but the same surface albedo did not differ. Using PCM-based materials in roof finishing materials can reduce surface temperatures and improve thermal comfort.
