9780470655733: Building Science: Concepts and Application
Quatrième de couverture :

With the improved efficiency of heating, cooling and lighting inbuildings crucial to the low carbon targets of all currentgovernments, Building Science: concepts and applicationsprovides a timely and much–needed primer on the key concepts ofheat, energy, light and sound.

Taking a logical and didactic approach, the author introducesthe reader to the underlying concepts and principles of thethermal, lighting, and acoustic determinants of building design infour integrated sections.

The first section explores the thermal building environment andthe principles of thermal comfort, translating these principlesinto conceptual building design solutions. The author examines theheat flow characteristics of the building envelope and explainssteady state design methods that form the basis of most buildingcodes. He discusses the sun as a natural heat source and describesthe principles of active and passive solar building designsolutions.

The second section introduces the scientific principles oflight, color, and vision, stressing the importance of daylight inbuilding design, presenting the Daylight Factor design concept andmethodology, and discussing glare conditions and their avoidance.It also addresses artificial lighting, delving into the prominentrole that electricity plays in the production of light byartificial means and comparing the efficacy and characteristics ofthe various commercially available light sources in terms of theenergy to light conversion ratio, life span, available intensityrange, color rendition properties, and cost.

The third section deals with the various aspects of sound thatimpact the design of the built environment, discussing the natureof sound as a physical force that sets any medium through which ittravels into vibration and laying the foundations for the treatmentof sound as an important means of communication as well as adisruptive disturbance.

The final section discusses the foundational concepts ofecological design as a basis for addressing sustainability issuesin building design solutions. These issues include the embeddedenergy of construction materials, waste management, preservation offreshwater and management of graywater, adoption of passive solarprinciples, energy saving measures applicable to mechanicalbuilding services, and the end–of–lifecycle deconstruction andrecycling of building materials and components.

WEBSITE:

A companion website for the book offers freely downloadableresources for students and lecturers:

Multiple Choice questions and answers: allow students to testtheir understanding of the concepts and principles of climate,heat, light, and sound, as well as their application in the designand construction of buildings.

Power Point slides: have been prepared for lecturers tohighlight the underlying fundamental principles pertaining to theenvironmental aspects of building science, with some practicalexamples from the natural and built environment.
