This book presents a series of significant methods and examples for the design of sustainable intelligent facades in a variety of contexts. Emphasis is placed on how intelligence has been applied for successful energy-saving efforts in the planning of building envelopes.
Readers will find essential information on the core principles involved in designing, calculating and organizing intelligent facades according to the need for a new or retrofitted building. Not only are different materials and technologies considered, but also efficient ways to combine them according to user needs and other project-specific constraints. Illustrations, tables and graphs accompany the text, clarifying the concepts discussed.
Architects, facade consultants and all those interested in and energy-saving measures and improved indoor comfort will find this book useful not only as an introduction to the subject but also as a guide to achieving more responsive building methods.

Описание: Illustrated with many line drawings, this guide provides information on a building`s function: how it stands up, keeps its occupants safe and comfortable, gets built, grows old, and dies - and why some buildings do this so much better than others. It is intended for architects, superintendents, and students of architecture and construction.

Описание: Belonging to the wider academic field of computer vision, video analytics has aroused a phenomenal surge of interest since the current millennium. Video analytics is intended to solve the problem of the incapability of exploiting video streams in real time for the purpose of detection or anticipation.
Описание: All concrete, when used for buildings or other structures, is reinforced, usually with steel rods or mesh wires. It can be poured in place into forms built at a site or cast off-site (pre-cast) and moved as pre-formed structural parts to a site. This text provides cutting-edge guidance on designing seismic-resistant structures built with pre-cast and reinforced concrete.
Описание: Building materials are experiencing degradation phenomena due to the long-term action of the atmospheric components. The understanding of the transport characteristics in concrete is a key issue to mitigate the deleterious consequences. Conventional cement-based materials suffer from a lack of ductility. However, modern cement compositions, fiber materials and additions allow to engineer new products adjusted to the purpose. These andveral key topics for modern civil engineering are discussed in this book.

Описание: On the premise that balanced equations of energy systems in buildings require researching as a whole, readers will find this book offers a wealth of useful and detailed information here about modeling and managing the energy systems of complex buildings.
Описание: Tall buildings are not the only solution for achieving sustainability through increased density in cities but, given the scale of current population shifts, the vertical city is increasingly being seen as the most viable solution for many urban centers. However, the full implications of concentrating more people on smaller plots of land by building vertically - whether for work, residential or leisure functions - needs to be better researched and understood. It is generally accepted that we need to reduce the energy equation – in both operating and embodied terms – of every component and system in the building as an essential element in making it more sustainable. Mechanical HVAC systems (Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning) in tall office buildings typically account for 30-40 percent of overall building energy consumption. The increased efficiency (or possibly even elimination) of these mechanical systems – through the provision of natural ventilation – could thus be argued to be the most important single step we could make in making tall buildings more sustainable. This guide sets out recommendations for every phase of the planning, construction and operation of natural ventilation systems in these buildings, including local climatic factors that need to be taken into account, how to plan for seasonal variations in weather, and the risks in adopting different implementation strategies. All of the recommendations are based on analysis of the research findings from richly-illustrated international case studies. Tried and tested solutions to real-life problems make this an essential guide for anyone working on the design and operation of tall buildings anywhere in the world. This is the first technical guide from the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat’s Tall Buildings & Sustainability Working Group looking in depth at a key element in the creation of tall buildings with a much-reduced environmental impact, while taking the industry closer to an appreciation of what constitutes a sustainable tall building, and what factors affect the sustainability threshold for tall.
Описание: Engineers are always interested in the worst-case scenario. One of the most important and challenging missions of structural engineers may be to narrow the range of unexpected incidents in building structural design. Redundancy, robustness and resilience play an important role in such circumstances. Improving the Earthquake Resilience of Buildings: The worst case approach discusses the importance of worst-scenario approach for improved earthquake resilience of buildings and nuclear reactor facilities.Improving the Earthquake Resilience of Buildings: The worst case approach consists of two parts. The first part deals with the characterization and modeling of worst or critical ground motions on inelastic structures and the related worst-case scenario in the structural design of ordinary simple building structures. The second part of the book focuses on investigating the worst-case scenario for passively controlled and base-isolated buildings. This allows for detailed consideration of a range of topics including:A consideration of damage of building structures in the critical excitation method for improved building-earthquake resilience, A consideration of uncertainties of structural parameters in structural control and base-isolation for improved building-earthquake resilience, andNew insights in structural design of super high-rise buildings under long-period ground motions. Improving the Earthquake Resilience of Buildings: The worst case approach is a valuable resource for researchers and engineers interested in learning and applying the worst-case scenario approach in the seismic-resistant design for more resilient structures.
Описание: This book offers peer-to-peer insights from leading practitioners who are experts in working with low carbon, renewable, and energy efficient technologies. A resource to dip into when asked to advise on sustinable building, it offers practical guidance on preparing for such projects, important points to note and common pitfalls to avoid. The book is based on interviews with practitioners who have hands-on experience of each technology and who have unique insight into the particular challenges for contractors working to deliver sustainable building projects. It covers the bckground to sustainable building; the practicalities - from energy managment to wate minimisation; and maintenance of existing buildings.Much guidance exists on sustaianble building but this is the first to speak directly to contractors - with guidance from fellow professionals who have dealt with real on-site challenges and who can offer practical advice based on experience. Many contractors are now faced with a business choice of offering services related to microgeneration/renewables and they must decide what technologies might be suitable for their businesses, and consider what level of training is required before they/their employees can start to work with these technologies. Delivering sustainable buildings: insights for contractors and installers will help contractors and facilities managers understand sustainable buildings at the strategic level (legislation, finance, training) and then to offer practical advice on various aspects of sustainable buildings (water use, energy efficient air conditioning, commissioning) to their clients.
