Mass effect

Describes the effect of a high-mass material on heating or cooling requirements. High-mass materials such as concrete, used in floors and walls, can absorb and store significant amounts of heat, which is later released. In climates with lots of sunshine, low humidity, and large daily temperature fluctuations, high-mass materials can mean a reduction in cooling and heating requirements by delaying the time at which the heat is released into the house.The physical volume or bulk of a solid body; or a grouping of individual parts or elements that compose a body of unspecified size.
