This dataset consists of the hourly heat flux for four seasons and orientations of 15 different construction configurations of brick and stone masonry combined with insulation system solutions. The analysis was conducted with the use of Finite Element Modelling (FEM). The development of the models and the investigation of their thermal performance was conducted with the use of thermal modelling and numerical simulation analysis with COMSOL Multiphysics. For this purpose, a transient 2D multi- dimensional, time- dependent simulation model on finite elements was developed. The governing equations of heat transfer were considered as well as the convection and radiation heat transfer coefficients in accordance to the ISO 6946:2017.
