Thermal performance of advanced material in intelligent concave and convex building façade in the semi-arid climate of low-rise residential
Keywords:Advanced material, convex and concave facade, energy consumption, thermal performance
Building energy consumption, creating a comfortable indoor environment, and enhancing building thermal performance, from construction until demolition, are the major issues nowadays. Various strategies and designs are used to obtain a comfortable environment. These issues are considered as factors of emerging fields of intelligent building. Sometimes, they do not require technology. Many old buildings offer intelligent features. Also, it is not supported to define the constructions that are not working well as intelligent buildings even if they are well equipped. Although various intelligent façades are seen worldwide, the context and climate vary from different places. However, few attempts to create them in semi-arid climates are available. The aim is to create a building that provides a more comfortable indoor environment with less energy demand using different advanced materials and showing its response, according to different concave and convex building façade. The subject will be done in three steps, firstly, reviewing the existing and recent studies that determine the factors affecting building thermal performance. Then, studying advanced material. Finally, it investigates the adaptation of the advanced material on the building façade in the low-rise residential building by testing samples of concave and convex building façade in the area. It will show how they perform thermally to get suitable concave and convex building façade. As a result, for the same climatic condition, the different shapes of the buildings will provide various thermal performances.
