Some articles on thermal, resistance, total thermal resistance:
... When calculating a thermal transmittance it is helpful to consider the building's construction in terms of its different layers ... the following table Thickness Material Conductivity Resistance = thickness / conductivity - outside surface - 0.04 K·m²/W 0.10 m clay bricks 0.77 W/m·K 0.13 K·m²/W 0.05 m glasswool 0.04 W ... The thermal transmittance of the structure is the reciprocal of the total thermal resistance ...
Famous quotes containing the words resistance and/or total:
“High treason, when it is resistance to tyranny here below, has its origin in, and is first committed by, the power that makes and forever re-creates man.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
