Abstract
The use of thermal mass in buildings is an effective way to improve the building?s interior comfort in places with high diurnal temperature variation. Combined with other passive strategies, thermal mass can play an important role in the energy efficiency of the building, minimizing the necessity of the traditional conditioning systems. However contemporary construction tends to industrializing light weight systems with low thermal mass. An innovative way to add the thermal mass` benefits to the buildings is the use of the latent heat thermal storage capacity of the Phase Change Materials (PCM).
