    Insulation panels for active control of heat transfer in walls operated as space heating or as a thermal barrier: Numerical simulations and experiments
    (Elsevier, 2018-01-01) Šimko, Martin; Krajčík, Michal; Šikula, Ondřej; peter, šimko; Kalús, Daniel
    Numerical simulations and experiments were performed for a thermally active wall with pipes arranged in milled channels in the thermal insulation. The advantage of this system is its suitability for installation in both new and existing buildings in the form of precast heat insulation panels attached to their facades. The study shows that by active control of the supply water temperature, it is possible to alternate the walĺs function between space heating and a thermal barrier. The wall system has the potential to significantly reduce heat loss when used as a thermal barrier. When operated as space heating, embedding the pipes in thermal insulation reduced the heating capacity by 50% as compared to systems with pipes arranged in a concrete core and by 63% for pipes arranged in a layer underneath the surface. It is crucial that pipes arranged in channels are embedded in a thermally conductive material. Failing to do so can substantially diminish the heating capacity due to the imperfect contact between the pipes and radiant surface and also due to the air gap that may form around the pipes. The thickness of the thermal insulation, spacing of the pipes, and supply water temperature also have a substantial effect on the heating capacity, whereas the thickness of the concrete core does not.

    Experimental performance analysis of biplane VAWT configurations
    (Institute for Research and Development in Industry, 2017-12-15) Oulhaci, Z. S.; Imine, Omar; Ladjedel, Omar; Yahiaoui, Tayeb; Adjlout, Lahouari; Šikula, Ondřej
    This paper aim to develop a new Darrieus wind turbine configurations based on the concept of biplane blades in order to improve the performances of the machine. The performances of the new design were investigated numerically and experimentally. Firstly a 2-D steady numerical simulation of an isolated two blades is carried out to exhibit the aerodynamic performance behavior. Secondly experiences are made on different Darrieus wind turbine by considering the biplane blade models. The experiments are carried out in wind tunnel by testing firstly: two, three and four blades Darrieus wind turbine as well as the biplane new configurations. The results of static torque and rotational speeds versus a wind velocity are presented. The obtained results corresponding to the new machines present a great improvement in the performances.
