Environmental Science in Building Summary


Environmental Science in Building by Randall McMullan

In this work, the author studies the science of those services that contribute to the environment which exists in and around buildings. The main topics are heating, lighting and sound in buildings; and the supply of electricity and water to buildings. The text emphasizes the necessity of an integrated approach to the study and design of environmental services. Topics are developed from basic principles and assume the minimum knowledge of science and mathematics. Important facts and formulae are highlighted in the text and where a numerical approach is relevant, worked examples are given step by step and supported by exercises for practice. The book is intended for students of building, civil engineering and surveying who are studying environmental science. The requirements of courses for degrees, for examinations of professional institutions and for Technician Education Council awards should be satisfied by the contents of the book. It should also serve as a useful reference for those in professional practice and for anyone interested in environmental science.
