    Plus Energy Buildings: A Numerical Case Study

    Abed Hawila1,2,3, Hala Alsalloum4, Abdelatif Merabtine1,*, Farouk Fardoun4,5, Rachid Bennacer6

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.1, pp. 117-134, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2022.022151

    Abstract The feasibility of Plus Energy Building for a sample relevant case is investigated. After a literature review aimed to identify key aspects of this type of buildings, a preliminary evaluation of the thermal performance of a building constructed using conventional material is presented together with a parametric analysis of the impact of typical influential parameters. Solar domestic hot water (SDHW) and photovoltaic systems (PV) are considered in the study. Numerical simulations indicate that for the examined sample case (Beirut in Lebanon) the total annual energy need of conventional building is 87.1 kWh/y.m2 . About 49% of More >

    A Cell Method Stress Analysis in Thin Floor Tiles Subjected to Temperature Variation

    E. Ferretti1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.36, No.3, pp. 293-322, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.036.293

    Abstract The Cell Method is applied in order to model the debonding mechanism in ceramic floor tiles subjected to positive thermal variation. The causes of thermal debonding, very usual in radiant heat floors, have not been fully clarified at the moment. There exist only a few simplified analytical approaches that assimilate this problem to an eccentric tile compression, but these approaches introduce axial forces that, in reality, do not exist. In our work we have abandoned the simplified closed form solution in favor of a numerical solution, which models the interaction between tiles and sub-base more… More >
