Thermal and Structural Performance of Geopolymer Concrete Containing Phase Change Material

Researchers used greenTEG’s heat flux sensors to thermally characterize a geopolymer concrete containing phase change material (PCM). The PCM containing cube showed improvement in thermal performance compared to the reference. However, the PCM containing cube lost structural strength compared to the reference.

The research has been published in Energy and Buildings:
