A floor in contact with the ground and having four exposed edges measures 20m by 10m.

i)Determine the thermal transmittance of the floor

ii)If the floor is surfaced with 15mm of wood block having a thermal conductivity of 0.14

W/mK, determine its thermal transmittance coefficient

iii)If the floor has a thermal insulation membrane of EPS having a thermal conductivity of 0.035W/mK in addition to its wood block finish, determine the transmittance coefficient.
