Energy Conscious Design
by Edited by J. Owen Lewis
This introduction to the theory and practice of designing energy-efficient passive solar buildings is based on a research programme funded by the European Community. This book looks at the climate and its effects, the building and how principles of energy conservation can be applied.
Part 1 The climate: macroclimate - climatic conditions in Euorpe, the sun (position radiation), the temperature, the wind, the humidity; mesoclimate - solar radiation, temperature, wind, humidity, types of mesoclimates; microclimates - solar radiation, wind, types of microclimates. Part 2 The building: heating strategy; heat storage; heat distribution; heat conservation; cooling strategy; heat avoidance; heat gains minimization; ventilation; natural cooling; daylighting. Part 3 The occupant: thermal comfort; visual comfort (illuminance level, light control).
