Résumé
In this work, an analysis and numerical study have been carried out in order to determine the best candidate brick from the thermal point of view by the finite element method. With respect to the ecological design and the energy saving for housing and industrial structures, there is also a great interest in light building materials with good physical and thermal behaviours, which fulfils all thermal requirements of the new CTE Spanish rule for further energy savings. The conduction, convection and radiation phenomena are taking into account in this study for four different types of bricks varying the material conductivity obtained from the experimental tests. Based on the previous thermal analysis, the best candidate was chosen and then a full 1.05 x 0.35 x 1.0 m. wall made of these bricks was simulated for fifteen different compositions and temperature distribution is also provided for some typical configurations. The major variables influencing the thermal conductivity of these walls are illustrated in this work for different concrete and mortar properties. The finite element method (FEM) is used for finding accurate solutions of the heat transfer equation for light concrete hollow brick walls. Mathematically, the nonlinearity is due to the radiation boundary condition inside the inner recesses of the bricks. Optimization of the walls is carried out from the finite element analysis of four hollow brick geometries by means of the average mass overall thermal efficiency and t
