PCM-Based Building Envelope Systems: Innovative Energy Solutions for Passive Design (Green Energy and Technology)

Buy

PCM Enhanced Building Envelopes presents the latest research in the field of thermal energy storage technologies that can be applied to solar heating and cooling with the aim of shifting and reducing building energy demand. It discusses both practical and technical issues, as well as the advantages of using common phase change materials (PCMs) in buildings as a more efficient, novel solution for passive solar heating/cooling strategies.

The book includes qualitative and quantitative descriptions of the science, technology and practices of PCM-based building envelopes, and reflects recent trends by placing emphasis on energy storage solutions within building walls, floors, ceilings, façades, windows, and shading devices. With the aim of assessing buildings’ energy performance, the book provides advanced modeling and simulation tools as a theoretical basis for the analysis of PCM-based building envelopes in terms of heat storage and transfer.

This book will be of interest to all those dealing with building energy analysis such as researchers, academics, students and professionals in the fields of mechanical and civil engineering and architectural design

The Definitive Guide to Scaling Out SQL Server 2000
Enterprise applications have become more complex and have taken on a greater burden for managing a company's critical data. At the same time, the amount of data managed by those applications has swelled exponentially as companies begin to track an increasingly greater amount of information-data about customers, vendors, sales, and more. In...

Where. Whether it refers to where you have been, where you are, or where you are going, the concept of where is important. Where links data to the physical world. A shopping list can be a very useful collection of data on its own, but that data can be even more useful with more context. If you map the location of the stores needed for...
