Thermal testing of sandwich panels

Testing of scaled-down sandwich panels, incorporating vacuum insulation, has been carried out. The tests were conducted in labs at Trinity College Dublin, using a hot box large enough to take 1/4 scale panels (though of full thickness). Promising results were achieved, showing low U-values. Edge losses and thermal bridging effects are being analysed to determine their influence on the overall heat transfer.
