Parametric Analysis of Thermal Comfort and Energy Efficiency in Building in Subtropical Climate

Ashfaque Ahmed Chowdhury, M.G. Rasul and M.M.K. Khan,    School of Engineering and Technology, Central Queensland University, Gladstone, Qld, Australia

This chapter presents a comparative analysis of human thermal comfort and energy efficiency achieved using traditional and alternative building envelopes. In this study, an alternative envelope system, which is scientifically and environmentally sustainable, is considered. It primarily consists of outside rendered walls with polystyrene, reinforced concrete and plasterboard inside to measure the thermal comfortability index and energy efficiency within the building environment. The results ...
