Metals are the most important materials in heat management with high intrinsic heat conductivity. However, the severe drawbacks associated with these materials such as their high price and their high density (weight) have created demand for other materials. One such group of alternative materials is thermally conductive plastics. These materials are widely used in electric and electronic applications due to their high thermal resistance.
Dry construction systems offer various benefits over wet construction practices such as ease of installation, decrease in construction time, better thermal and sound insulation, humidity resistance, and fire safety. Dry construction uses panels or boards fitted on metal structures to build walls includes interior and exterior segment, ceilings, windows, and other systems.
Smart windows feature “smart glass” or laminated glass with switchable glazing that controls the quantity of privacy, glare, heat and light pass-through automatically or manually. Smart windows utilize technologies, for example, liquid crystals, photochromic, electrochromics and suspended particle displays.
