Energy and Climate in the Urban Built Environment (Paperback): M. Santamouris Energy and Climate in the Urban Built Environment (Paperback)
M. Santamouris
R1,200 Discovery Miles 12 000 Out of stock

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 climate and require vast quantities of energy to keep them functioning. The urban environment in turn has a big impact on the performance and needs of buildings. The size, scale and mechanism of these interactions is poorly understood and strategies to mitigate them are rarely implemented. This is the first comprehensive book to address these questions. It arises out of a programme of work (POLISTUDIES) carried out for the Save programme of the European Commission. Chapters describe not only the main problems encountered such as the heat island and canyon effects, but also a range of design solutions that can be adopted both to improve the energy performance and indoor air quality of individual buildings and to look at aspects of urban design that can reduce these climatic effects. The book concludes with some examples of innovative urban bioclimatic buildings. The project was co-ordinated by Professor Mat Santamouris from the University of Athens who is also the editor of the book. Other contributions are from the University of Thessaloniki, Greece, ENTPE, Lyons, France and the University of Stuttgart, Germany.

Passive Cooling of Buildings (Paperback): D. Asimakopoulos Passive Cooling of Buildings (Paperback)
D. Asimakopoulos; Edited by M. Santamouris
R1,210 Discovery Miles 12 100 Out of stock

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 passive cooling together with the principles and formulae necessary for its successful implementation. The material is comprised largely of information and results compiled under the SAVE European Research Programme.

Solar Thermal Technologies for Buildings - The State of the Art (Paperback): M. Santamouris Solar Thermal Technologies for Buildings - The State of the Art (Paperback)
M. Santamouris
R1,523 Discovery Miles 15 230 Out of stock

Solar thermal is now a proven technology in terms of reliability, cost-benefit, and low environmental impact. The integration of solar thermal systems and installations into the design of buildings can provide a clean, efficient and sustainable low-energy solution for heating and cooling, whilst, taken in a wider context, contributing to climate protection. This book covers the state of the art in the application of solar thermal technologies for buildings. This is the first book in the BEST (Buildings, Energy and Solar Technology) Series. This series presents high-quality theoretical and application-oriented material on solar energy and energy-efficient technologies. Leading international experts cover the strategies and technologies that form the basis of high-performance, sustainable buildings, crucial to enhancing our built and urban environment.

Thermal Analysis and Design of Passive Solar Buildings (Paperback): A.K. Athienitis Thermal Analysis and Design of Passive Solar Buildings (Paperback)
A.K. Athienitis; Edited by M. Santamouris
R1,185 Discovery Miles 11 850 Out of stock

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 utilization of available solar energy and thermal storage, and the sizing of an appropriate auxiliary heating/cooling system in conjunction with good thermal control. Thermal Analysis and Design of Passive Solar Buildings is an important contribution towards the optimization of buildings as systems that act as natural filters between the indoor and outdoor environments, while maximizing the utilization of solar energy. As such it will be an essential source of information to engineers, architects, HVAC engineers and building physicists.

Energy Rating of Residential Buildings (Hardcover): M. Santamouris Energy Rating of Residential Buildings (Hardcover)
M. Santamouris
R2,185 R1,910 Discovery Miles 19 100 Save R275 (13%) Out of stock

Energy represents a high percentage of the running cost of a building and has a significant impact on the comfort of the occupants. This book presents detailed information on energy rating of residential buildings, covering the theoretical and experimental rating techniques. It reviews the state of the art and offers guidance on the in-situ identification of relevant energy values of buildings. Established energy normalization techniques are described. Also, new experimental protocols for evaluating energy performance and a new Climate Severity Index (offering significant benefits to the user) are presented. The book includes contributions from experts at the University of Athens, Greece, the Belgian Building Research Institute, Belgium, the University of Seville, Spain, and the Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden.
