Maja Staniec, Hans Janssen, Henryk Nowak & Maja Staniec
The paper analyses the heat balance of various types of earth-sheltered buildings, which may become a novel approach to sustainable dwellings. Earth-sheltered buildings may be simply described as a concrete construction built on a soil surface level and next covered with soil. Due to large mass and thermal capacity of soil it reacts more slowely to changes of its surface temperature and the annual variations are reduced with depth. It causes the soil temperature at...
