THERMAL DYNAMICS FROM COMPONENT AND BUILDING TESTS.

Thermal parameters describing a building must be calculable from component data (as necessary for design studies) or measurable from building tests (as necessary for monitoring projects). To demonstrate that these two approaches are equivalent, a test cell was constructed from components that had been characterized in a hot box to reduce errors in calculation of the whole-building admittances from the component values. On the other hand, measured whole-building admittances were obtained from short-term tests (both indoors and outdoors). Measured and calculated test cell admittances are shown to be in good agreement, with magnitudes agreeing to about 5% on average.
