School of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Present study is concentrated on evaluating the climate adaptive capability of Tuzhang dwellings. The comparisons to different thermal physical properties such as thermal resistance R0, thermal inertia index data D, reduction coefficient of thermal wave transferring V0 and thermal transferring delaying time ξ0 have been performed between Tuzhang dwelling and normal brick house. Comparing results show that Tuzhang dwelling has much better thermal properties than normal brick house. Therefore, regarding to climate adaptive capability, traditional Tuzhang dwelling is vastly superior to brick house.
