Original Abstract

This paper deals with the determination of linear thermal transmittance for buildings with acute angle 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 and the values of typical detail are listed in databases. Current architecture of designs buildings uses acute angle shapes quite frequently. It corresponds with new trends in architecture. In such cases the value of linear thermal transmittance is not accurate for using databases. This paper presents an analysis of the influence of the change of angle of the walls in corner to linear thermal transmittance. It provides information applicable for buildings assessment in engineering practice.
