Original Abstract

This paper deals with the determination of linear thermal transmittance for buildings with rounded shapes. Calculation of linear thermal transmittance is a standard problem in determining the influence of thermal bridges on the overall energy performance of buildings. Computational methods are known for ordinary rectangular buildings. Current energy-saving architecture designs buildings with rounded organic shapes quite frequently.Not only it corresponds with new trends in architecture, but also serves to improve the area to volume ratio of buildings. In such cases the value of linear thermal transmittance calculated by standard methods isn't accurate enough. This paper presents an analysis of the influence of the curvature of the buildings surface to linear thermal transmittance. It provides information applicable for buildings assessment in engineering practice.
