 Spanish translation:Valor "R Explanation:La R no se traduce. Esta es la definición que da Termium: English:Metrology and Units of Measure Building Insulation and Acoustical Design Thermal Insulation R-factor s CORRECT R s CORRECT R-value s CORRECT thermal resistance coefficient s PROPOSAL resistance unit s ru s resistance value s thermal resistance value s PROPOSAL DEF - "thermal resistance (R, ru, R-factor, R-value)": Reciprocal of a heat transfer coefficient (R = 1/C, 1/U, 1/F). It is the most useful factor in thermal design calculations because resistances are additive, whereas conductances and conductivities are not. s CONT - Insulation is now manufactured and sold by its thermal "resistance value" (called the "R"-value) - a precise measurement of the insulation's resistance to heat transfer. The higher the resistance value, the less heat will escape through the insulating material. s OBS - The word "ru" is an abbreviation for resistance unit. s

Valor R

Explanation:
Una medida para registrar el grado de resistencia al calor y su capacidad como material aislante. Entre mayor sea el valor R, mayor será la capacidad de aislamiento.
