Описание: Despite policy directives, standards and guidelines, indoor environmental quality is still poor in many cases. The Healthy Indoor Environment, winner of the 2016 IDEC Book Award,aims to help architects, building engineers and anyone concerned with the wellbeing of building occupants to better understand the effects of spending time in buildings on health and comfort. In three clear parts dedicated to mechanisms, assessment and analysis, the book looks at different indoor stressors and their effects on wellbeing in a variety of scenarios with a range of tools and methods. The book supports a more holistic way of evaluating indoor environments and argues that a clear understanding of how the human body and mind receive, perceive and respond to indoor conditions is needed. At the national, European and worldwide level, it is acknowledged that a healthy and comfortable indoor environment is important both for the quality of life, now and in the future, and for the creation of truly sustainable buildings. Moreover, current methods of risk assessment are no longer adequate: a different view on indoor environment is required. Highly illustrated and full of practical examples, the book makes recommendations for future procedures for investigating indoor environmental quality based on an interdisciplinary understanding of the mechanisms of responses to stressors. It forms the basis for the development of an integrated approach towards assessment of indoor environmental quality.
Описание: Covering the fundamentals of air-borne particles and settled dust in the indoor environment, this handy reference investigates: relevant definitions and terminology, characteristics, sources, sampling techniques and instrumentation, exposure assessment, and monitoring methods. The result is a useful and comprehensive overview for chemists, physicists and biologists, postgraduate students, medical practitioners, occupational health professionals, building ownernd managers, building, construction and air-conditioning engineers, architects, environmental lawyers, and government and regulatory professionals.
Описание: Now in its Sixth Edition, Fundamentals of Building Construction is an essential textbook that has been used by thousands of students annually in schools of architecture, construction management and technology. The best-selling reference focuses on the basic materials and methods used in building construction. Emphasizing common construction systems such as light wood frame, masonry bearing wall, steel frame, and reinforced concrete construction, the new edition includes new information on building materials properties, the latest on "pre-engineered" building components, sustainability issues, and reflects the latest building codes and standards. Available separately, Exercises in Building Construction 6E, supplements the text with 47 homework and laboratory assignments.
Описание: * gives key information in each area with where to go for more detailed guidance * strong focus on engineering and craft solutions * offers a comprehensive overview of a multi-disciplinary area to encourage disparate groups of professionals to work more closely * full colour throughout .

Описание: A companion to Understanding Green Building Guidelines, this primer explains green building products-what they are and how to choose them.
Описание: Performance of Bio-based Building Materials provides guidance on the use of bio-based building materials (BBBM) with respect to their performance. The book focuses on BBBM currently present on the European market. The state-of-the-art is presented regarding material properties, recommended uses, performance expectancies, testing methodology, and related standards. . Chapters cover both ‘old and traditional’ BBBM since quite a few of them are experiencing a comeback on the market. Promising developments that could become commercial in the near future are presented as well. The book will be a valuable reference resource for those working in the bio-based materials research community, architects and agencies dealing with sustainable construction, and graduate students in civil engineering.
This book presents the current state of knowledge on nanomaterials and their use in buildings, ranging from glazing and vacuum insulation to PCM composites. It also discusses recent applications in organic photovoltaics, photo-bioreactors, bioplastics and foams, making it an exciting read while also providing copious references to current research and applications for those wanting to pursue possible future research directions.
Derek Clements-Croome, Emeritus Professor in Architectural Engineering, University of Reading (From the Foreword)
Demonstrating how higher energy efficiency in new and existing buildings can help reduce global greenhouse gas emissions, this book details the way in which new technologies, manufacturing processes and products can serve to abate emissions from the energy sector and offer a cost-effective means of improving competitiveness and drive employment.
Maximizing reader insights into how nano and biotech materials – such as aerogel based plasters, thermochromic glazings and thermal energy adsorbing glass, amongst others – can provide high energy efficiency performance in buildings, it provides practitioners in the field with an important high-tech tool to tackle key challenges and is essential reading for civil engineers, architects, materials scientists and researchers in the area of the sustainability of the built environment.
Описание: Provides information on green product selection, product specification, and construction processes. This book includes information on LEED requirements and how to integrate them into the specifications process. It also includes sections on commissioning and on construction waste management.
Описание: Now in its Fourth Edition, "Fundamentals of Building Construction" is an essential textbook that has been used by thousands of students annually in schools of architecture, engineering, and construction technology. The best-selling reference focuses on the basic materials and methods used in building construction. Emphasizing common construction systems such as light wood frames, masonry bearing walls, steel frames, and reinforced concrete, the new edition includes new coverage of green design and energy-efficient construction energies, and is based on the International Building Code(r).
Описание: Exercises in Building Construction, Fourth Edition provides a fully revised, user-friendly exercise book to supplement the fourth edition of Fundamentals of Building Construction. * Includes more than 40 exercises in "real world" construction problem solving; encourages students to apply information learned in classroom. * Exercises are clearly presented with detailed line drawings; easy for student and instructor to follow. * Revised to correspond withe fourth edition of Fundamentals of Building Construction. * Includes companion web pages for instructor use, containing Answer Key and sample drawings.
