The second edition of this reliable text provides readers with a thorough understanding of the design procedures that are essential in designing new buildings and building refurbishment.
Covering the fundamentals of heat and mass transfer as essential underpinning knowledge, this edition has been thoroughly updated and reflects the need for new building design and building refurbishment to feature low energy consumption and sustainable characteristics.
New additions include:
- extended and updated worked examples
- two new appendices covering renewable energy systems and sustainable building engineering – with startling conclusions.
This book is an invaluable guide for HND and degree level students of building services engineering, as well as building, built environment, building engineering and architecture courses.
