Polymer Composites for Passive Control System of Buildings

Description

Currently, many researches of polymer and polymer-based materials have been showing a lot of valuable applications in industry fields such as the building sector. Also buildings are the major energy consumers and account for as much as 45% of global energy consumption. So the passive control system in the building environment with a high energy saving potential has become increasingly important. Recently, the use of thermal energy storage with phase change material (PCM) is considered to be one of the most important advanced technologies, and a lot of attention has been paid to utilization of the essential techniques for thermal applications, ranging from heating to cooling in buildings. Using thermal energy storage system in the building can smooth temperature fluctuations, and such storage can be implemented by sensible heat or latent heat utilization. Latent heat storage enables the passive control of the temperature in buildings. Also there are many polymers such as film, polymer foam, and adhesives that are used in building materials to control heat, moisture, and so on.

Therefore, the purpose of this special issue is to publish high quality research papers as well as review articles addressing recent advances on Composites for Passive Control System of Buildings. So we are pleased to invite you to contribute a paper related to the topic “Polymers and Composites for Passive Control System of Buildings.” Original, high quality contributions that are not yet published or that are not currently under review by other journals or peer-reviewed conferences are sought.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Composites and materials for passive control system of buildings
  • Thermal energy storage materials for buildings
  • Phase Change Materials (PCM) combination with building materials
  • Composites based on renewable and sustainable materials
  • Insulation materials
  • Advanced architectural renewable and sustainable technology
  • Advanced materials for energy-efficient buildings
  • Various polymers in buildings
  • Characterization and evaluation of the performance of nominated composites
