In the EC DG-XII Passys project several dynamic identification methods have been developed to determine the surface-to-surface thermal resistance of walls. These methods are different from the dynamical method described in the present ISO-standard. Since there exist a growing number of potentially powerful analysis methods it is not appropriate to impose one particular method. Performance checks are necessary against which a chosen analysis has to be verified. The CEN-standard under study for modification will contain such a performance check. The performance check contains four tests each for three walls, differing in thermal mass and heat resistance. The check provides evaluation criteria for classification of methods. This paper describes the results of the work done at the JRC Ispra, concerning the creation of Fourier coefficient tables for the performance check.
