Presentation at the Trondheim conference now available for download

A short and coincise presentation I gave in Trondheim (Norway) on 7.11.19, which summarizes the parametric study reported in the conference paper (see the link below). Here is the presentation:  

Conference paper on geothermal energy now published

Here you can download the pdf (open access): I will give the talk next week at the 1st Nordic nZEB+ conference in Trondheim, Norway! Abstract: Geothermal energy constitutes an important renewable resource that will become increasingly prominent in future constructions. A common method of extraction and usage consists of installing, inside the foundation piles […]

Two conference papers now published

The two conference papers on #energy efficiency in buildings I presented last May at the conference CLIMA 2019, #Bucharest are now published, with open access: Experimental study of radiator, underfloor, ceiling and air heater systems heat emission performance in TUT nZEB test facility Annual performance analysis of heat emission in radiator and underfloor heating systems […]

New paper explaining the crack patterns on the surface of heated wood

Our new paper on heated wood seems to confirm our model for a phenomenon that remained unexplained for a few decades. Abstract: When a flat sample of medium density fibreboard (MDF) is exposed to radiant heat in an inert atmosphere, primary crack patterns suddenly start to appear over the entire surface before pyrolysis and […]

New paper on energy efficiency published

A new paper on the energy efficiency of buildings (here, ice hockey halls) is now published! Title: Energy analysis in ice hockey arenas and analytical formula for the temperature profile in the ice pad with transient boundary conditions Abstract: The energy efficiency of ice hockey arenas is a central concern for the administrations, as these […]
