Heat loss to the ground from a building : slab on the ground and cellar
(1988) In Report TVBH 1004. Abstract
 Heated buildings induce a heat flow from the building foundation into the ground. The topic of this thesis is the thermal process in the ground and, in particular, the heat losses from the building to the ground. Foundations of the three types slab on the ground, cellar, and crawlspace are dealt with. The crawlspace is treated in separate report.
A reasonably complete theory for the thermal processes, and in particular the heat loss, is expounded. Dimensionless formulation, superposition technique, and analytical solutions for basic periodic and stepresponse components are used. The threedimensional, steadystate heat loss component is obtained from numerical solutions.

A reasonably complete theory for the thermal processes, and in particular the heat loss, is expounded. Dimensionless formulation, superposition technique, and analytical solutions for basic periodic and stepresponse components are used. The threedimensional, steadystate heat loss component is obtained from numerical solutions.
An accurate and manageable calculation method for heat losses to the ground has been developed. The method, which is based on both numerical calculations and analytical solutions, accounts for threedimensional effects and the timevarying outdoor temperature in a proper way.
