Transmission heat loss per square foot, caused by the heat conductivity of building material, is measured by the heat transmission coefficient, U, the number of Btus transmitted through one square foot of surface of a particular material for one degree of temperature difference between one side of the material and the other, T, over one hour.
the Fourier equation for the mono-dimensional heat conduction can be solved thanks to the properties of the [e.sup.[j[omega][tau]]] operator, and the heat transmission coefficients of the generic slab of a multilayered wall can be evaluated (Carslaw and Jaeger 1960):
Based on the input calculations, for each structural part of the building the heat transmission coefficients are calculated.
