Item description for Thermal Analysis and Design of Passive Solar Buildings by A. K. Athienitis...

Passive solar design techniques are becoming increasingly important in building design. This design reference book takes the building engineer or physicist step-by-step through the thermal analysis and design of passive solar buildings. In particular it emphasizes two important topics: the maximum utilization of available solar energy and thermal storage, and the sizing of an appropriate auxiliary heating/cooling system in conjunction with good thermal control.
Topics include:
* transient heat transfer and thermal storage
* fenestration components, systems and daylighting
* dynamic models of heat transfer in solar buildings
* the passive response of solar buildings and its use in design
* ventilation and indoor air quality
* analysis and sizing of small auxiliary heating/cooling systems
* control of passive solar buildings
* solar energy utilization techniques and systems

"Thermal Analysis and Design of Passive Solar Buildings" is an important contribution towards the optimization of buildings as systems that act as natural filters between the indoor and outdoor environments, while maximizing the utilization of solar energy. As such it will be an essential source of information to engineers, architects, HVAC engineers and building physicists.
