Ventilation and Airflow in Buildings Methods for Diagnosis and Evaluation

Ventilation and Airflow in Buildings: Methods for Diagnosis and Evaluation

1st Edition

By Claude-Alain Roulet
July 28, 2016

Energy efficiency in buildings requires, among other things, that ventilation be appropriately dimensioned: too much ventilation wastes energy, and insufficient ventilation leads to poor indoor air quality and low comfort. Studies have shown that ventilation systems seldom function according to ...

Natural Ventilation in the Urban Environment Assessment and Design

Natural Ventilation in the Urban Environment: Assessment and Design

1st Edition

Edited By Francis Allard, Cristian Ghiaus
May 17, 2016

Throughout the world, there is an increasing interest in ecological design of buildings, and natural ventilation has proved to be the most efficient low-energy cooling technique. Its practical application, however, is hindered by the lack of information on the complex relationship between the ...

Advances in Passive Cooling

1st Edition

Edited By Mat Santamouris
November 26, 2015

Following a rapid increase in the use of air conditioning in buildings of all types, the energy demand for powering such devices has become a significant cause for concern. Passive cooling is increasingly being thought of as the best alternative to air conditioning. This book offers the latest ...

Passive Cooling of Buildings

Passive Cooling of Buildings

1st Edition

By D. Asimakopoulos, M. Santamouris
March 01, 1996

Energy use in buildings in the EU represents about 40% of the total annual energy consumption. With greater awareness of the need to reduce energy consumption comes a growth of interest in passive cooling, particularly as an alternative to air-conditioning. This book describes the fundamentals of ...

Thermal Analysis and Design of Passive Solar Buildings

Thermal Analysis and Design of Passive Solar Buildings

1st Edition

By AK Athienitis, M. Santamouris
November 01, 2000

Passive solar design techniques are becoming increasingly important in building design. This design reference book takes the building engineer or physicist step-by-step through the thermal analysis and design of passive solar buildings. In particular it emphasises two important topics: the maximum ...

Energy and Climate in the Urban Built Environment

Energy and Climate in the Urban Built Environment

1st Edition

Edited By M. Santamouris
February 01, 2001

Both the number and percentage of people living in urban areas is growing rapidly. Up to half of the world's population is expected to be living in a city by the end of the century and there are over 170 cities in the world with populations over a million. Cities have a huge impact on the local ...
