This paper details the results of thermal testing carried out on three experimental buildings during the summer of 2007 and compares their performance with that predicted by using the CIBSE Admittance procedure. The buildings, one brick veneer, one mud brick and one of autoclaved aerated concrete wall panels were constructed by the author in Sydney, Australia. The field results were compared with the admittance procedure based on published design values for direct and diffuse radiation in Sydney. The results of this analysis confirm the relative performance of the three walling systems and provide a basis for understanding the thermal behaviour of these buildings. © 2008 University of Sydney.
