Building physics combines heat and mass transfer, building acoustics, lighting, and indoor air quality, and has a true impact on energy performance and serviceability. This volume focuses on heat, air, moisture transfer and its usage in engineering applications. With examples.
This book details the basic concepts and the design rules included in Eurocode 3 ?Design of steel structures? Part 1-8 ?Design of joints?. Joints in composite construction are also addressed through references to Eurocode 4 ?Design of composite steel and concrete structures? Part 1-1 ?General rules and rules for buildings?.
When designing and realizing commercial buildings, plants, bridges, tunnels, etc. , it is crucial to take into consideration the conditions resulting from temporary works equipment. The author is a licensed checking engineer and member of committees working on technical standards.
Net Zero-Energy Buildings have been the object of numerous studies in recent years as various countries have set this performance level as a long-term goal of their energy policies. This book presents a unique study of 30 NZEBs that have been constructed and have had their performance measured for at least 12 months.
