Performance evaluation of an intelligent hybrid floor-collector system
Automation in Construction 6 (5-6) (1997) pp. 427-436
The paper presents the intelligent features of a hybrid floor-slab/wall-air-collector system, that is being developed at the Fraunhofer Institut für Bauphysik, and was analyzed by the author. The system can be identified as an intelligent system for "truly intelligent" buildings, namely, a sub-system that integrates the building fabric and the interior temperature control system to produce an automatically controlled environment, that improves comfort while saving energy.
