Efficient use of thermal mass in buildings
Paper in proceedings, 2012

Energy efficient solutions are required in order to build low energy buildings. By using the thermal mass, free energy can be stored in the frame work and reduce the amount of bought energy. The energy storage in a sandwich wall is reported and the influence of different parameters is presented.
