Example text

La forma del tejado y la existencia de salientes diversos, por ejemplo, también influyen en conseguir una casa más o menos “aerodinámica”. Si se consideran las direcciones de los vientos predominantes, tanto en invierno como en verano es posible llegar a una situación de compromiso que disminuya las infiltraciones en invierno e incremente la ventilación en verano. m. 64 Procedimientos constructivos y ambientales energéticos en muros Figura 24. Resistencia de un a vivienda frente al viento. La orientación de la casa influye sobre: • La captación solar.

En las condiciones de la figura 6, la inclusión de un tercer muro (Engelbert, op. ) no paralelo a los dos primeros, confiere más rigidez lateral al sistema según la magnitud de la componente de la fuerza horizontal que quede en el plano de cada muro. m. Generalidades de los muros 43 Figura 7. Fuerza horizontal sobre un sistema simple. En el caso de dos muros estructurales perpendiculares (fig. 8), una fuerza horizontal obligará al sistema a girar alrededor del eje común 0-0. Cualquier muro (idem) no radialmente dispuesto desde el eje 0-0 contribuirá a estabilizar el sistema porque la fuerza actuante (o una sustancial componente de ésta) queda en el plano de (idem).

Si la casa está enterrada o semienterrada, la masa térmica del suelo ayudará también a la amortiguación de oscilaciones térmicas, en un ciclo largo. El aislamiento térmico dificulta el paso de calor por conducción del interior al exterior de la vivienda y viceversa. Por ello es eficaz tanto en invierno como en verano. Una forma de conseguirlo es utilizar recubrimientos de materiales muy aislantes, como espumas y plásticos. No conviene exagerar con este tipo de aislamiento, puesto que existe otra importante causa de pérdida de calor: las infiltraciones.
