ABSTRACT In this paper, a thermal insulation analysis was carried out for a building using paper waste reinforced clay brick as building material. Firstly, the analysis was made using two different normal wall bricks as building material for the sample building. Later, the analysis was carried out for the reference paper waste reinforced clay brick, and the results of these two cases were compared. Within the scope of analysis, depending on the building material used, the brick thickness was changed at certain ratios for both cases, and changes due to thickness, specific heat loss and total heat need were observed with Engineering Equation Solver (EES) program. As a result of these observations and analyzes, it was concluded that the use of paper waste reinforced clay brick instead of using two different standard wall bricks as building materials significantly reduced the total
energy requirement. Moreover, the result of this study shows us that, since the use of bricks made of waste and brick instead of normal wall bricks as building material is produced from natural sources as well as contributing to recycling and associated energy saving; it is inevitable to contribute to a healthier insulation since it has both a low production cost and a lower heat transfer coefficient.
