Overview: Though the heat transfer
coefficients from the surface of conditioned floors are
universally accepted, the multidimensional heat exchange
processes within the slab are less understood. This
presentation will illustrate using finite element analysis,
the relationships between the physical and thermal
characteristics of the floor. The outcome from this session
will help practitioners optimise the panel heat exchanger
design for enabling maximum energy and exergy efficiency
from the heating and cooling system.
1. Describe the relationships between the physical and
thermal characteristics of the various elements assembled
for constructing embedded pipe radiant floor cooling and
2.Explain the limitations of 2D finite element analysis when
evaluating embedded pipe systems.

Background - we have over 800 pages at the
website many with course slides and spreadsheet tools. In
order for us to manage who wants what and from where, our
administrative team assigns a password to a URL and uses the IEQ
Linked In group to manage the request. Additionally our email is
backlogged to last year so sending us private emails requesting

futility...if you really want the
