PBS Program Name:
ARC 17/18 Discovery
Grant Program:
Discovery Projects
Grant Activity:
Elastocaloric cooling systems for buildings and the built environment
Purpose:
This project aims to develop elastocaloric cooling systems that will find application in buildings and the built environment. The main aims of the projects are to establish a new technology capable of enhancing the efficiency of traditional cooling systems used for building applications and of reducing the contribution of structural and architectural components to the urban heat island effect. This work will be supported by a new theoretical platform that will incorporate the elastocaloric cooling behaviour into the structural, thermal and energy performance of the building components, as well as by prototype testing. The outcomes of the project will lead to new building cooling technologies, increasing efficiency of traditional cooling building systems.
