ITPE TECHNIQUE APPLICATIONS TO TIME-VARYING THREE-DIMENSIONAL GROUND-COUPLING PROBLEMS. Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Approximate analytical solutions for the three-dimensional heat transfer between slab-on-grade floors and rectangular basements under steady-periodic conditions are developed using the Interzone Temperature Profile Estimation method. The slab-on-grade solution is the first analytical slab-on-grade solution which treats the presence of insulation on/under the floor, while the basement solution is the first analytical solution of the time-dependent three-dimensional problem for basements. Solutions are given for the temperature field and expressions are derived for the annual heat losses.
