Just like building physics, performance based building design was hardly an issue before the energy crises of the 1970ies. With the need to upgrade energy efficiency, the interest in overall building performance grew. The term "performance" encompasses all building-related physical properties and qualities that are predictable during the design stage and controllable during and after construction. The term "predictable" demands calculation tools and physical models that allow evaluating a design, whereas "controllable" presumes the existence of measuring methods available on site. The basis for a system of performance arrays are the functional demands, the needs for accessibility, safety, well-being, durability, energy efficiency and sustainability and the requirements imposed by the usage of a building.

In continuation of Vol. 1 this second volume discusses light-weight construction with wooden and metal elements, roofing systems, façades, and ends with finishes and the overall risk analysis. Most chapters build on a same scheme: overview, overall performance evaluation, design and construction.
The work is absolutely recommended to undergraduates and graduates in architectural and building engineering, though also building engineers, who want to refresh their knowledge, may benefit. The level of discussion assumes the reader has a sound knowledge of building physics, along with a background in structural engineering, building materials and building construction. Where and when needed, input and literature from over the world was used, reason why each chapter ends listing references and literature.

From the Back Cover:

As the second of the two volumes on performance based buildingdesign, the book continues applying the performance rationale,advanced ‘Applied Building Physics’, to the design andconstruction of buildings. The first volume ended with the analysisof cavity walls, the most traditional outer wall type of NorthWestern Europe, and its adaptation to high insulationstandards.

The present book starts with a construction type which istypical for North America and the Scandinavian Countries:timber-framed. Sheet-metal outer wall solutions are next, afterwhich the focus turns to low-sloped, pitched and sheet-metal roofs.A thorough study of glazing types, windows and glass-based envelopesystems with windows fronts, curtain walls, double skinfaçades and PV-façades as exemplary cases follows. Withthe building enclosure rain and windproof, the discussion shifts tobalconies, shafts, chimneys, stairs, inside partitions and severalfinishing techniques. The risks linked to design errors andworkmanship accuracies are the subject of the last chapter.Overall, we maintain the same scheme as in volume one: overview,overall performance evaluation, design and construction, althoughsome chapters employ a somewhat simpler approach.

The book incorporates 35 years of teaching building constructionto architectural and building engineers, bolstered by 36 years ofresearch and 44 years of consultancy in solving buildingproblems,

About the Author:

Prof. Em. Dr. Ir. Hugo S.L.C. Hens, University of Leuven (K.U. Louvain, Belgium), taught Building Physics from 1975 to 2003, Performance Based Building Design from 1970 to 2005 and Building Services from 1975 to 1977 and 1990 to 2008. Until 1972, he worked as a structural engineer at a mid-sized architectural company, constructing houses, apartment buildings and office buildings. He has authored and co-authored over 150 articles and conference papers, and written hundreds of reports on building damage cases and their solution. He has been coordinating the international working group CIB W40 on Heat and Mass Transfer in Buildings for ten years. Between 1986 and 2008, he was operating agent of four Annexes, initiated by the International Energy Agency?s EXCO on Energy Conservation in Buildings and Community Systems: Annex 14, Annex 24, Annex 32 and Annex 41. He is also a fellow of the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).

Book Description Ernst W. & Sohn Verlag Nov 2012, 2012. Taschenbuch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - So wenig wie die Bauphysik insgesamt stand die Energieeffizienz vor der Energiekrise der 1970er Jahre bei der Planung von Gebäuden auf der Tagesordnung. Mit der wachsenden Notwendigkeit der Energieeinsparung stieg aber das Interesse an der ganzheitlichen Gebäudeplanung. Das zweibändige Werk stellt die ganzheitliche Gebäudebetrachtung und seine 'Performance', getragen von der Anwendung bauphysikalischer Zusammenhänge, in der Planung und Ausführung dar. Der Begriff 'Gebäudeperformance' meint hier alle Gebäude bezogenen physikalischen Eigenschaften, die im Entwurfsprozess planbar und während des Bauprozesses und im Betrieb kontrollierbar sind. Der Begriff 'planbar' erfordert Berechnungsmodelle und -verfahren für die Bemessung und Auslegung, während 'kontrollierbar' den Einsatz von Messtechnik und Vergleichsanalysen erfordert. In Fortführung des ersten Bandes behandelt dieser zweite Band Leichtbauwände in Holzbauweise und Sandwichelementen, Dachkonstruktionen, Fassadentypen bis hin zum Innenausbau und endet mit der globalen Risikoanalyse. Dabei folgen die meisten Kapitel der Systematik: Überblick, allgemeine Anforderungen, Planung, Ausführung. Das Werk bietet sowohl für Studenten der Architektur und des Bauingenieurwesens umfassendes Rüstzeug für die Bewältigung von Hochbaukonstruktionen, als auch den in der Praxis tätigen Bauingenieuren ein Nachschlagewerk zur Auffrischung des Wissens. Das Buch setzt gründliche Kenntnisse der Bauphysik sowie Grundkenntnisse in Tragwerksplanung, Baustoffkunde und Baukonstruktionen voraus.
