# U Val ue for Solid Ground Floor s

===== ========================= =
Enter length & breadth of floor.
Enter reduction for edge insulation.
Floor has four exposed ed ges.
New wall thickness can be entered.
Length of floor, L m = 20 m
Breadth of floor, B m = 10 m
Reduction for edge insula tion = 0.00 %
Shape factor S = 0.971
Thickness of wall, W m = 0.3 m
*** **********************************************************
** Thermal Transmittance U = 0.482 W/m2 K **
*** **********************************************************
** Lower validity of U: above 0.02 W/m2 K, OK. **
** Upper validity of U: below 2.0 W/m2 K, OK. **

U Val ue for Suspended Floors
===== =======================
Enter length & breadth of floor.
The suspended floor may b e constructe d of timbe r or concr ete.
Standard CIBSE values and equations a re used.
Rso and Ra are not used i n this conte xt.
Length of floor, L m = 60 m
Breadth of floor, B m = 20 m
Reduction for edge insula tion = 0.00 %
Shape factor S = 0.985
Thickness of wall, W m = 0.3 m
Earth thermal transmittan ce Ue = 0.258 W/m2 K
Earth resistance Re = 3.736 m2 K/W
Stand ard values for all cases: R m2 K/W
