Energy Modeling and Computations in the Building Envelope

 
9781498723206: Energy Modeling and Computations in the Building Envelope

Energy Modeling and Computations in the Building Envelope instills a deeper understanding of the energy interactions between buildings and the environment, based on the analysis of transfer processes operating in the building envelope components at the microscopic level. The author:

  • Proposes a generalized physics model that describes these interactions at the microscopic level via the macroscopic characteristics of the building envelope
  • Presents mathematical models that utilize classical analytical tools and can be used to perform quantitative predictions of the consequences of the energy interactions
  • Reveals easy-to-apply engineering methods concerning the design and inspection of the building envelope, taking into account the effects of energy on the envelope

Energy Modeling and Computations in the Building Envelope provides comprehensive coverage of this environmentally and economically important topic, from the physics of energy transfer to its numerical estimation. The book is especially useful to those looking to increase building energy efficiency, decrease the consumption of primary energy carriers, and raise the ecological sustainability of construction products.

About the Author:

Alexander V. Dimitrov is a professional lecturer with 35 years of experience in four different universities. In addition to universities in Bulgaria, Professor Dimitrov has lectured and studied at leading scientific laboratories and institutes, including the Luikov Heat and Mass Transfer Institute of the Belarusian Academy of Sciences in Minsk; the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Environmental Energy Technology Division; the University of Nevada– Las Vegas College of Engineering; and Stanford University in California. He has authored more than 100 scientific articles and eight books (including three in English), and earned two scientific degrees: Ph.D and D.Sc.

Review:

"... does an excellent job at enlightening the practicing engineer in a difficult, but exciting area dealing with building efficiency, energy, and design."
―Darrell W. Pepper, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, USA

"... describes detailed theoretical and numerical analysis of the microscale energy and heat transfer processes in the solid materials for buildings, particularly envelopes."
―Cheng-Xian (Charlie) Lin, Florida International University, Miami, USA

"This book is a valuable contribution to the worlds of science and of practice, a service to building and environmental protection and, herewith, to the next generations."
International Journal of Energy Optimization and Engineering, April-June 2015
