It is common knowledge that buildings should be constructed with good envelopes and sufficient masses. However, U.S. building codes make no provision for a building's thermal mass. This may result from that the conventional heat balance design—which assumes constant indoor air temperature, any heat imbalance resulting from corresponding envelope heat loss or gain and internal heat gain is accounted...
