Book titleChapter 23, ASHRAE 1981 Fundamentals Handbook
AbstractThis chapter is concerned with the concepts and procedures for determining such coefficients, and includes a brief discussion of factors that may affect the values of these coefficients and performance of thermal insulation.coefficients may be determined by testing, or computed from known values of thermal conductance of the various components. Procedures for calculating coefficients are illustrated by examples and, because it is impracticable to test all combinations of materials, tables of computed design values for the more common constructions are given.
