About this item

This textbook emphasizes fundamental principles and provides detailed engineering and technical information through tables, figures, and electronic media, thus serving as a bridge between invariant principles and mercurial practices and standards. The material takes two 15-week semesters to cover entirely, and each chapter is stand-alone, with its own abstract, nomenclature, reference, and problem set. The third edition is thoroughly revised, greatly expanded, and completely rearranged, partly to accommodate increasing concern about energy use, but also to integrate evolving concepts and systems. It especially enlarges the coverage on transient load analysis and peak load calculation methods and on building mechanical systems. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)

This text presents the technical basis for designing the mechanical systems of buildings in this new age of green buildings and maximum energy efficiency. Along with numerous new and revised worked examples, design case studies, and homework problems, the third edition offers an updated version of the Heating and Cooling of Buildings (HCB) software. From materials to computers, this edition explores the latest technologies exerting a profound effect on the design and operation of buildings.
