Global Sensitivity Analysis of the Building Energy Performance and Correlation Assessment of the Design Parameters (Civil Project)

The world’s energy use in buildings (residential and commercial) accounts for around 40% of the worldwide energy consumption, and space heating is the responsible for half of the energy need in the building sector. In Europe, only a small share (less than 10%) of Continue reading

Comparative Simulation of Heat Transfer in a Cylinder of Phase Changing Material: How Does the Orientation Impact the Energy Discharge? (Mechanical Project)

A computer simulation was done in COMSOL Mulitphysics 5.1, on heat transfer in rods filled with phase change material (PCM). The main objective was to compare the rods rate of heat transfer at Continue reading
