Using Vacuum Insulation Panels for the Remediation of Difficult Building Details

11.3.2019 | Ing. Vítězslav Novák, doc. Ing. Jiří Zach, Ph.D., Vysoké učení technické v Brně, Fakulta stavební, Ústav technologie stavebních hmot a dílců, Ing. Jan Plachý, Ph.D., Vysoká škola technická a ekonomická v Českých Budějovicích, Katedra stavebnictví
Construction and renovation often brings thermal-technical challenges in certain details of certain structures. These details often place strict limitations on the thickness of thermal insulations. This is where the so-called superinsulations (i.e. materials with exceptionally low thermal conductivity) can find good use. The paper focuses on the use of these superinsulation materials in the remediation of thermal bridges in door and window jambs.

Roof Windows for Passive Buildings

29.11.2018 | prof. Ing. Jan Tywoniak, CSc., ČVUT Praha, pracoviště UCEEB
The paper presents the building-physical context of the use of roof windows in buildings with very low energy demand. It shows their relatively significant influence on the total heat loss of a single family house and the consequence of the specific disadvantageous set-up in the pitched roof. It is shown that the thermal transmittance should not exceed 0.7 W/(m2K) with a strict limitation of thermal coupling in the connection to the roof. In the second part, the paper shows the positive effect of the slanting of the inner lining on the quality of day lighting.

Results of carbon dioxide concentration measurement in the bedroom

10.9.2018 | Ing. Petr Bohuslávek, redakce
The measurement of carbon dioxide concentration was made in my bedroom in February 2018 within one week. CO2 concentration during the night is evaluated under different ventilation modes. The results show a significant effect of ventilation on air quality. They prove that only natural ventilation through tight windows in current developmental residential buildings is inadequate.

Innovative methods for serial energy retrofitting of residetinal buidlings – examples from the Netherlands

20.8.2018 | Ing. Antonín Lupíšek, Ph.D., ČVUT v Praze, pracoviště UCEEB
The paper describes actual trends in serial deep energy retrofitting of buildings in the Netherlands. A set of photographs presents several Dutch pilot projects of energy retrofitting of post-war family houses in Heerlen, Melick and Soersterberg to net zero energy level and of one multifamily residential building in Arnhem to nearly zero energy level. The retrofitting projects were made utilizing prefabricated thermal insulation wall modules with timber structural system (that included new windows) and prefabricated roof panels. All presented projects also featured replacement of energy sources and in case of the family houses also installations of photovoltaic systems replacing roof tiles.

PVB and EVA temperature and loading ratio shear modulus assessment

30.4.2018 | Ing. Tomáš Hána, doc. Ing. Martina Eliášová, CSc., Katedra ocelových a dřevěných konstrukcí, Fakulta stavební, ČVUT v Praze, Ing. Klára Machalická, Ph.D., Ing. Miroslav Vokáč, Ph.D., Kloknerův ústav, ČVUT v Praze
In contemporary architecture there are many various types of glass load bearing elements such as beams, slabs, floors or even columns. Most of these elements are made of laminated glass. Individual glass plies in the panel are bonded with polymeric interlayer providing shear forces transfer between the plies. This transfer primarily depends on the interlayer´s stiffness which is ambient temperature and static load duration dependent and is the subject of a current research. Considering the fact that shear stiffnesses of most interlayers have not been experimentally verified yet, civil engineers are compelled to design laminated glass structures on the safe side. This approach results in robust and uneconomic structures. This paper deals with the initial PVB (Trosifol BG-R-20, Trosifol Extra Strong) and EVA (Evasafe) initial shear modulus assessment depending on the temperature and loading ratio, these interlayers shear stiffness comparison and important results summary.

Differences in the Traditional and New Approach to the Daylight Evaluation of Buildings

11.12.2017 | Ing. et Ing. Lenka Gábrová, Ústav pozemního stavitelství, Vysoké učení technické v Brně, Fakulta stavební
The article deals with a comparison of a room area size which is suitable for reading and writing according to two daylight evaluation criteria. The first one is the daylight factor which is determined under the CIE overcast sky model and it is traditionally used for quantitative daylight evaluations of buildings. The second compared evaluation criterion is the daylight autonomy which is one of new daylight metrics whose calculation is based on daylight illuminance values throughout the year and for a specific location.

Hardwood from North America and its use in Eastern Europe

4.12.2017 | Dr. Eva Haviarová, Purdue University, Department of Forestry and Natural Resources, Purdue, Ing. Milan Šimek, Ph.D., Mendelova univerzita v Brně, Lesnická a dřevařská fakulta, Dr. Henry Quesada, Virginia Tech University, Department of Sustainable Biomaterials
In the last two decades, the US hardwood industry has experienced an important increase in their exports to key markets in Southeast Asia, and Western Europe. However, the export to Easter Europe is currently limited. In these emerging economies, production of furniture and many different kinds of wood products are on the rise. Favorable labor costs, progressive design, and available material resources are key factors that sustain the growth of these industries. The forest products industry is also significant consumer of hardwood lumber. Despite the fact that Easter European countries have its own hardwood material resources, the rapid industry growth, increased sustainability practices, and increased demand of high quality material may require the need for additional material sourcing.

What are the common parts of residential buildings in the Czech Republic?

19.6.2017 | Ing. Petr Bohuslávek, redakce
The definition of what is a common part of a residential building is essential especially when modifying the building structures and eliminating defects that affect both a common part and residential units. How common parts are defined affects who finances the modifications and reconstructions of such structures and parts. The definition of common parts is based on the new Civil Code (No. 89/2012 Coll.) and on the already abolished Act on Ownership of Housing (No. 72/1994 Coll.).

Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings

9.1.2017 | Ing. Jan Antonín, Ph.D., EnergySim, Ing. Magdalena Purkrtová
For more than a year, a nearly zero-energy standard has applied to certain buildings. In the Czech environment, specific technical parameters for such buildings have been known for three years. And for over six years, the Directive on energy performance of buildings has been in force, imposing the obligation upon EU member states to introduce this standard.

Nevertheless, it seems that for many experts, including those in the field of energy, this term is still quite unclear. Many imagine buildings coated with photovoltaic modules from the ground to the roof, buildings which are better than passive ones or buildings which are self-sufficient, i.e. completely independent of public energy networks. Given the fact that the concept of a nearly zero energy building is very distant from such notions, and because this standard will soon become obligatory for all buildings, including small family houses, let's have a look at what a nearly zero-energy building really is.

Sound insulation acoustic tests in laboratory in situ

4.4.2016 | Ing. Pavel Rubáš, Ph.D., Technický a zkušební ústav stavební Praha, s. p.
Windows and door designed for noise reduction can be measured by two methods: laboratory airborne sound insulation (EN ISO 10140) and in-situ airborne sound insulation (EN ISO 104-5). The in-situ method mandates for averaging results of measurements taken in surface of tested samples for specific angles of incidence. Furthermore, the article presents some original formulas which could be applied for Rw improvement if the door or window does not reach a minimum requirements or if there are specific requirements for noise reduction. During the measurement of in-situ airborne sound insulation on installed doors or windows, the result can be contaminated by some specific factors like geometry, sizes etc., compromising the compatibility with the laboratory results. It has been noticed how these practical problems, jointly with the acoustical design in the presented formulas, can significantly increase the laboratory values of the product. Results of in situ tests are discussed in comparison with results obtained through a traditional tests performed in the lab.

Defects occurring when renovating opening panes of buildings in preservation zones

8.6.2015 | Ing. František Stránský
In buildings registered in preservation zones the preservationists require keeping of the division and shaping of the opening pane girts and respecting of the original look of the facade. Keeping the girt profile, it is nowdays permitted to glaze the window wings using insulation glass. The manufacturers of windows still make many mistakes affecting not only physical characteristics of the opening panes but also their durability – life time.

The methodology for estimation of the thermal factor at the inner surface in the corner of glazing

1.6.2015 | Ing. Roman Jirák, Ph.D., Decoen v.o.s.
The surface temperature as one of the most watched parametres of the opening panes and light enveopes not only in the Czech Republic is being assessed in a view of risk of water vapour condensation, or more precisely in a view of their health and a hygyenic flaws and ecologically sound environment where inbuilt. The mening is determination if the structure is suitable for the marginal conditions or whether is necessary to choose another structure.
