Thermal flywheel effect
The thermal flywheel effect, sometimes also referred to as "Thermal Momentum", is a term used to describe the property of a material to remain at a given temperature. It is generally applied to buildings or construction materials. This is distinct from a materials insulative value. A building's average internal temperature can stay stable much longer due to the thermal flywheel effect.

Materials, higher to lower "flywheel effect"
This is only a general classification, as the quantity (mass) and thermal conductivity, and arrangements of materials all have an effect on this.
