Abstract


Due to the modern development of construction industry, buildings and other appliances is becoming the highest energy consumer in developed countries. Improvement of the energy performance of the building is the prime objective of the paper to minimize the energy consumption and to control the global warming by utilizing alternate source of materials which is having less emission of Co2. Thus in-order to minimize the energy consumption of the building the phase change materials are used. Here the Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) and Perlite are used as a phase change material in cement mortar. The thermal behaviour of the PCM is analysed by measuring the room temperature with PCM and without PCM. The results are also showed that the range of temperature and its effects are decreased because of Latent heat characterized PCM.

Author Keywords: Global Warming, Polyethylene Glycol, Perlite, Thermal Behaviour, PCM.
