The conventional Trombe wall stores and circulates heat from the sun by creating an air space between a masonry wall (thermal mass) and exterior window. Heated air rises to air vents at the top of the air space. When needed, the heated air is circulated through the room by convection. The cooled air re-enters the space through vents at the bottom. Usually a Trombe wall is placed behind what would otherwise be a window.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
