Methodologies for Selection of Thermal Insulation Materials for Cost-Effective, Sustainable, and Energy-Efficient Retrofitting

A. Kylili and P.A. Fokaides,    Frederick University, Nicosia, Cyprus

Abstract

The selection of the appropriate thermal insulation materials postconstruction represents a research challenge that needs a smart and horizontal approach. The justification of the most appropriate solutions requires a deep understanding of the significant cost and environmental properties of thermal insulation materials, as well as the conditions under which they are applicable for different building solutions.

This chapter concludes with the development of a comprehensive knowledge basis of the field of thermal insulation materials, ...
