In order to meet new demands for reduction in energy consumption for the appliance and building applications, there is an urgent need for the develop ment of rigid closed celled polyurethane foams with improved insulation properties. Furthermore, in view of the fact that chlorofluorocarbons...
This paper represents a synthesis of results, both experimental and theoretical, that were obtained from a study of natural convection in fibrous insulat ing materials presenting a permeable interface to the adjacent fluid layer(s)
A test methodology that uses thermal resistance-time curves deter mined on thin shces of the foam and the scaling technique to relate aging time to the specimen thickness, was applied to evaluate long-term thermal performance of six polyurethane foams manufactured with the same polymer but...
New plastic foam insulation manufacturers or products encounter the problem that long age thermal performance data cannot be available, such as 5 years old. A method for estimating long-term thermal performance of extruded polystyrene foams based on computer curve fitting against a menu of...
The drive for more efficient utilisation of materials encourages an in tegrated design approach, with multifunctional use of materials Thus cellular plas tics may be asked to function, simultaneously, as insulation and as load-bearing ma terial. In such a case, creep can have an important effect.
