Energy Simulation in Building Design ePUB Ô Energy


Energy Simulation in Building Design Since the appearance of the first edition of Energy Simulation in Building Design , the use of computer based appraisal tools to solve energy design problems within buildings has grown rapidly A leading figure in this field, Professor Joseph Clarke has updated his book throughout to reflect these latest developments The book now includes material on combined thermal lighting and CFD simulation, advanced glazings, indoor air quality and photovoltaic components This thorough revision means that the book remains the key text on simulation for architects, building engineering consultants and students of building engineering and environmental design of buildings The book s purpose is to help architects, mechanical environmental engineers and energy facility managers to understand and apply the emerging computer methods for options appraisal at the individual building, estate, city, region and national levels This is achieved by interspersing theoretical derivations relating to simulation within an evolving description of the built environment as a complex system The premise is that the effective application of any simulation tool requires a thorough understanding of the domain it addresses

    I was looking for something applicable This wasn t it.

    I am still reading it, but by what I have seen this is a complete building simulation book The structure is made in a way you should build a model from scratch and this helps understand the most important variables on a model of a building It does cover some of the physics, most of the calculus and even has some simple algorithms that seem to be usefull.I got the book to have a reference and most of the time I do simulations of comercial buildings from warehouses to shopping centers and sports arenas with EnergyPlus and in a first impression the choice was good, as the book has a similar aproach as that used on the EP software.Definitively recommend this book as an introduction and as a reference.
