Description: The research is focused on theoretical models' application and the use of experimental techniques representing climate-adaptive mechanisms of materials with a change of state and piezoelectric materials integrated into energy-efficient building components. The basic functions of such experimental materials include the storage of latent heat energy and the valorization of electric parameters. The purpose of the research is to verify theoretical models that adequately describe the experimental results of the material and construction elements. Based on the obtained results, appropriate applications of the investigated approaches will be proposed for the field of construction. The work will involve material characterization (thermal and electrical properties) of the designed multifunctional materials, and analysis of the acquired data.
