Abstract: This article investigates experimentally the heat and moisture behaviour of scale-down houses built using a new hybrid wall )UWall( system and traditional walls. To achieve this, five scale-down houses )1.5×1.5×2.4 m( were built in Samutprakan province )Thailand( using walls made of conventional or composite materials: specimen H1 with mon block walls, specimen H2 with brick block, specimen H3 with lightweight block, specimen H4 with a composite infill wall, and specimen H5 with the new hybrid U-Wall. This study shows initial results from temperature and relative humidity outside and inside the walls as continuously measured for 48 hours using high precision resistant thermal detector )RTD( during the hot season in Thailand. Based on the present study, it is found that the new hybrid UWall shows a good thermal performance compared to the conventional solutions. The temperature difference between outside and inside was approximately 3-5°C for hybrid wall which exhibits the good performance among the walls used in this study.
