Thermal Mass Calculator

The New Thermal Mass Calculator As A Part Of The ORNL Material Database For Whole Building Energy Simulations

The new Thermal Mass calculator is a part of the newly developed Interactive Envelope Materials Database for Whole-Building Energy Simulation Programs. It offers many new advancements including the capability of calculations for complex residential buildings (ten different climate scenarios, four types of base wall technologies, energy savings information, etc.).  The new material database will provide a direct link between existing hotbox testing results, advanced three-dimensional heat transfer simulations, and whole building energy analysis. Only hotbox tested wall systems will be represented in this new database.
