Advances in Passive Cooling (BEST (Buildings Energy and by Mat Santamouris

By Mat Santamouris

Following a quick raise within the use of air con in structures of every kind, the power call for for powering such units has turn into an important reason for trouble. Passive cooling is more and more being considered the simplest substitute to air conditioning.

This publication deals the most recent wisdom and methods on passive cooling, permitting construction pros to appreciate the cutting-edge and hire appropriate new recommendations. With separate chapters on convenience, city microclimate, sunlight keep watch over, air flow, floor cooling and evaporative and radiative cooling, this authoritative textual content can be priceless for architects, engineers and scholars engaged on development physics and low-energy design.

Advances in Passive Cooling is a part of the simplest sequence, edited via Mat Santamouris. the purpose of the sequence is to offer the most up-tp-date, top of the range theoretical and alertness orientated fabric within the box of solar power and effort effective structures. top overseas specialists hide the concepts and applied sciences that shape the foundation of high-performance, sustainable constructions, the most important to bettering our outfitted and concrete environment.
