Testing the ceramics using for making the wall of energy conservation building
MetadataShow full item record
This research aims to study and test a ceramic product in using to constructs a wall. This research is based on a previous studying to develop a ceramic product that saves the energy in the building. The early test shows the product has out door heat resisting capability and it is very user-friendly. However, the test was only an early stage. The research still lack of a real life situation test and has very little feedback from the consumers. All of which are very importance to farther develop this product into a production stage. The research has 2 steps. First step, to testing the heat and humidity resisting quality of the product, the researcher is building four testing blocks (dimension 1x1x1 meter). Each block has different material on one of its side, block 1 has brick, block 2 has concrete masonry unit, block 3 has autoclaved aerated concrete, and block 4 has ceramic block. The other three side of each block have a heated and humidity resisting form. The researches test the following; heat energy, the temperature inside the blocks, and humidity inside the block. After comparing the difference between the airs inside and out-side of the blocks, the block 2 with concrete masonry unit has the best humidity resisting quality and is the most user-friendly product. In the term of heat resisting, block 3 with autoclaved aerated concrete perform the best. Second step, to test the user-friendliness of the product, the researcher found 2 groups of consumers. First group are the wall constructing expert. This group has a hard time using this product and can’t get use d to the product so, they find this product to be too thin and too weak. Second group the home owner, feel the product has a thinner wall and believe it’s weaker than a typical construction brick. There for, they still don’t know how to use this product.
