Laboratory Measurements of the Temperature Induced Changes in the Resistance of Wall Structures
In this article laboratory measurements will be presented in order to show the effect of the temperature difference in
the thermal resistance of an insulated wall. Insulation of buildings is key action to reduce the energy use of buildings as well as
to reduce the emission of green house gases. Laboratory measurements with calibrated chamber method were executed on a 25
cm brick masonry wall covered with 10 cm graphite EPS insulation. In order to see the changes in the thermal resistance of the
wall the temperature of the air in the cold room was changed, while the temperature in the warm side was fixed.
