505 0  Introduction -- Impregnation of PCMs in Building Materials
       -- PCM Current Applications and Thermal Performance -- 
520    This short book provides an update on various methods for 
       incorporating phase changing materials (PCMs) into 
       building structures. It discusses previous research into 
       optimizing the integration of PCMs into surrounding walls 
       (gypsum board and interior plaster products), trombe walls,
       ceramic floor tiles, concrete elements (walls and 
       pavements), windows, concrete and brick masonry, 
       underfloor heating, ceilings, thermal insulation and 
       furniture an indoor appliances. Based on the phase change 
       state, PCMs fall into three groups: solid-solid PCMs, 
       solid-liquid PCMs and liquid-gas PCMs. Of these the solid-
       liquid PCMs, which include organic PCMs, inorganic PCMs 
       and eutectics, are suitable for thermal energy storage. 
       The process of selecting an appropriate PCM is extremely 
       complex, but crucial for thermal energy storage. The 
       potential PCM should have a suitable melting temperature, 
       and the desirable heat of fusion and thermal conductivity 
       specified by the practical application. Thus, the methods 
       of measuring the thermal properties of PCMs are key. With 
       suitable PCMs and the correct incorporation method, latent
       heat thermal energy storage (LHTES) can be economically 
       efficient for heating and cooling buildings. However, 
       several problems need to be tackled before LHTES can 
       reliably and practically be applied
