Biomimetics and thermo-adaptive façades : Comparative study of thermal adaptability in nature and engineering

Gosztonyi, Susanne LU (2015) 10th Conference on Advanced Building Skins
Abstract
The paper presents results from a comparative study of selected biological and technical functions for thermal adaptability, which are based on an extensive literature review in biology and façade engineering. Several selected biological role models have been analysed in detail to identify their principles for dealing with thermal adaptation. These principles have been further abstracted through systematic biomimetic methods into use cases and compared with existing technical solutions and materials for thermally adaptive facades. Identified differences in the comparison are transferred to optimization suggestions for thermally responsive façade elements that are more effective and sustainable based on biomimetic measures.
