I'm trying to calculate how much heat energy will be absorbed by the thermal mass in a (hopefully) passive solar workshop. The floor and walls are essentially the same material, rammed clay soil stabilized with lime - that's the plan, anyhow. Let's say all thicknesses are 40cm for now - with a formula for decent calculations, we'll set about deciding what dimensions would be best given budget, climate, etc. If the proper calculation is very complicated, is there a way to come up with a decent estimate?Probably there is a great page on this somewhere, i just don't know how to properly phrase the search.Thx.
