An Experimental Study on the Thermal Performance of Gypsum Partition Walls
Buildings can use less energy if they finish their walls and ceilings with gypsum board. The construction of homes, businesses, and factories uses this material, which was developed in Australia in the early 1990s and then adopted by other countries including China and India. Without the need for columns or beams, gypsum walls can be used as slabs and walls for structural and aesthetic reasons. A lack of fresh building supplies is a result of India's severe housing deficit. The use of sustainable solutions is always preferable when resources are few. To optimally use gypsum board as building material, methods are needed to reduce mold and condensation that frequently found on the material and inner surface of board. This study compares the thermal efficiency of several gypsum partition walls. The test parameters considered in the walls included with and without filler material on thermal performance. Filler materials considered as EPS sheets. Present study will help to choose the right combination of materials for improving the thermal performance of gypsum partition walled structures.
