Bad experiences with construction quality, the energy crises of 1973 and 1979, complaints about ’sick buildings’, thermal, acoustical, visual and olfactory discomfort, the move towards more sustainability, have all accelerated the development of a field, which until 35 years ago was hardly more than an academic exercise: building physics. Through the application of existing physical knowledge and the combination with information coming from other disciplines, the field helps to understand the physical performance of building parts, buildings and the built environment, and transl

This unique new manual provides an introduction to moisture analysis in buildings and examines the necessary technical background for conducting moisture analysis as an integral part of building design.. For the building practitioner without a deep knowledge in hygrothermal analysis, it offers a basic understanding of the mechanisms involved in moisture movement, condensation, and accumulation, as well as the tools for conducting analysis on simple building walls and roofs. For the intermediate and expert in moisture analysis, it adds recent state-of-the-art information on weather data, materi

Energy has been described as ’that which makes things go’. Air conditioning accounts for 1/3 of the total energy use in society. Further, ventilation air accounts for 20-40 percent of the cooling load for HVAC (Heating, ventilating, and Air conditioning) industry. The ratio can be even higher in hot and humid regions where latent load from fresh air is as heavy as 50 percent of the cooling load. In this book, the systems and performances used for total heat recovery are introduced. They can be classified into two categories: energy wheels and stationary total heat exchangers. Energ
