AbstractThe use of thermal energy storage in buildings is well understood but contemporary buildings with highly insulated, lightweight construction have low thermal inertia. This causes them to respond rapidly to external temperature changes, which results in significant internal temperature fluctuations and overheating. This research addresses this problem by developing a thermal interactive wall-lining through the inclusion of phase change materials.
