What is thermal conductivity of different insulating materials

Thermal conductivity is defined as the amount of heat (in watts) transferred through 1 one square metre (m2) of a material of given thickness (in metres) due to a difference in temperature. The lower the thermal conductivity of the material the greater the material’s ability to resist heat transfer, and higher its thermal resistance (R …

Thermal resistance of waffle pod slabs for NCC energy efficiency

What is waffle pod slab? Waffle slab is mainly a cost-effective structural element in the building that also has some energy cost savings benefits. It consists of edge footings and narrow internal strip footings. It is built on the ground and 170 to 370mm polystyrene waffle pods fill the voids between the strips. The polystyrene …
