Conference Proceeding
TAYLOR, B.J., WEBSTER, R. and IMBABI, M.S. 1997. The use of dynamic and diffusive insulation for combined heat recovery and ventilation in buildings. In Proceedings of the Building Environmental Performance Analysis Club (BEPAC) / Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) sustainable building mini-conference, 5-6 February 1997. Abingdon, UK. Reading: BEPAC, pages 168-174.

Modern buildings, domestic and commercial, have attempted to reduce their energy requirements by improving the airtightness of the envelope and increasing the thickness of insulation. However, this trend has developed simultaneously with increased us... Read More about The use of dynamic and diffusive insulation for combined heat recovery and ventilation in buildings..

The effect of air film thermal resistance on the behaviour of dynamic insulation. (1997)
Journal Article
TAYLOR, B. J. and IMBABI, M. S. 1997. The effect of air film thermal resistance on the behaviour of dynamic insulation. Building and environment [online], 32(5), pages 397-404. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/S0360-1323(97)00012-7

The authors' previous analysis of dynamic insulation is extended to include the inner and outer air film resistances with the objective of modelling the variation in surface temperature with airflow. The boundary condition that comes closest to predi... Read More about The effect of air film thermal resistance on the behaviour of dynamic insulation..
