Vegetation wall from teak leaves for insulation reducing heat transfer to buildings
MetadataShow full item record
At present, global warming is a major problem that needs to be addressed and mitigated. The problem arises because human housing construction is increasing. The surface of the soil, which is a source of vegetation, was scattered by the building. The impact of the construction resulted in higher overall temperatures. This is caused by the heat accumulated in the building material. Particularly for building materials that have been exposed to direct sunlight, this has had an impact on the comfort of the occupants in the building. This research is an experiment to make a wall of plants from a tattoo. The natural plant material was planted to study the solar radiation efficiency of the planting wall of the tattooed leaves installed on the test box. Based on the analysis of the data, it can be concluded that the test wall covered with vegetation leaves the temperature lower than that of the other walls. Different test walls make different internal and external temperatures. Sun radiation affects the test wall temperature varying according to the amount of sun radiation received. Observed by changing internal and external wall temperatures at different intervals. Use plants to protect the walls to prevent heat by keeping the walls under the shade of the plant. It also radiates heat through the leaves. Leaves are a thermodynamic variable that is cooled down by the evaporation of leaves. Plants on the wall will absorb the water inside to evaporate. The temperature of the tree is cool. When combined with the airflow through the wall, the shade will blow the hot air under the leaves and the water vapor from the dehydration process of the plant. The heat from the tree wall to the environment is better. As a result, the internal temperature decreased.
