Solar energy building applications are attracting increasing attention from researchers, engineers, businessmen and officials due to their significant benefits in sustainable development, such as energy saving, cost reduction and environmental protection. Trombe wall, as a classical passive solar heating technique, has been studied for many years. A variety of concepts, methodologies and experiences have been developed during relevant research. Especially in recent years, numerous studies on Trombe wall have been published, which implies a rising attention to this technique. This review focuses on the classification, experimental assessment, modeling methods, and evaluation metrics for Trombe wall. In detail, nine types of Trombe walls are introduced according to their materials, structures and functions. Four experimental methods and two modeling methods of Trombe wall are discussed based on their functions, advantages, disadvantages, and applicability. Three aspects of evaluation metrics for Trombe wall are summarized in terms of technique, economy and environment. Moreover, the current and future research of Trombe wall are discussed at the end. The authors consider this article would be useful for their peers and can facilitate the technical development of Trombe wall.
