Comparative response of lightweight and traditional building solutions
The aim of this paper is to evaluate the potentialities of an MBT - ''Mixed Building Technology'' solution under the point of view of the thermal and the acoustic performance and the visual comfort. For this purpose, a case study is presented, where the performance of a MBT building (an office building in Coimbra) is compared with the performance of a virtual traditional building with the same geometry and orientation. The fundamental difference between these two buildings is the weight of the building elements and the solar exposure strategy.
