The PCM walls provide 17% of the heat load on a sunny day in the heating period. The average daily overall efﬁciency of PCM walls is 19% in the heating period. article i nfo abstract Article history: A research study was conducted to investigate the thermal performance of phase change material (PCM) Received 23 February 2016 walls. The south-facing external wall of a test room was constructed using PCM walls composed of brick Accepted 27 March 2016 walls, plasterboards containing PCMs, and novel triple glass. The thermal performance of the PCM walls Available online 1 April 2016 was experimentally determined on a daily basis. The ratio of the solar energy gain provided by the PCM walls to the heat load of the test room on a daily basis varied from 12% to 25%; daily overall efﬁciency of Keywords: the coupled novel triple glass and PCM walls
