Experimental and Numerical Analysis of Steel Frame Structure Exposed to High Temperature

Abstract

Structures exposed to fire loading, where supports prevent thermal expansions, must be calculated according to the basic principles of mechanics while respecting the effect of rising temperature on the structure and its effect on the value of variable material properties at the time of fire. The paper analyzed and compared results of the experiment aimed to verify the behavior of statically indeterminate steel frame exposed to high temperature and numerical modelling using finite element method in the ANSYS software.

Numerical and Experimental Models of the Thermally Stratified Boundary Layer

Abstract

The article describes a change of selected turbulent variables in the surroundings of a flow around thermally loaded object. The problem is solved numerically in the software Ansys Fluent using a Transition SST model that is able to take into account the difference between high and low turbulence at the interface between the wake behind an obstacle and the free stream. The results are verified with experimental measurements in the wind tunnel.

Using of Aerogel to Improve Thermal Insulating Properties of Windows

Abstract

For the best possible thermal-technical properties of building structures it is necessary to use materials with very low thermal conductivity. Due to the increasing thermal-technical requirements for building structures, the insulating materials are developed. One of the modern thermal insulating materials is so-called aerogel. Unfortunately, this material is not used in the field of external thermal insulation composite systems because of its price and its properties. The aim of this paper is to present possibilities of using this insulating material in the civil engineering - specifically a usage of aerogel in the production of windows.
