[en] A numerical model is developed to assess the static and dynamic operations of a new kind of floor heat emitter. Surface floor heating systems are widely used to achieve better comfort conditions in residential and tertiary building sector. Classical floor heating systems have a low thermal response while the emitting device studied in this paper is highly reactive. It allows comfort enhancement and energy savings. A finite element method based software COMSOL Multiphysics is applied to solve the heat equation. This work focuses on the thermal behaviour of the emitter itself, but does not include a building model. A test bench has been built for this application to verify the numerical model. Both computational and experimental results demonstrate the benefits of this new heating and cooling device.
