Guide To Thermally Efficient Building Materials

'Materials for Energy Efficiency and Thermal Comfort in Buildings' critically reviews the advanced building materials applicable for improving the built environment. A preliminary examination of building physics reviews heat and mass transport processes and hyprothermal behaviour and simulation in buildings.

It explores a life-cycle assessment approach to selecting building materials as well as environmental profiling of building materials. A significant focus on materials used for insulation is followed by a summary of the benefits of applying thermal energy storage, which can be demonstrated by computer simulation. Concluding chapters address the issue of sustainable development for a designer and consider the specific challenges faced by new-build developments.

Materials for energy efficiency and thermal comfort in buildings is a suitable reference for mechanical, electrical and HVAC engineers, architects and low-energy building practitioners, as well as for academics and researchers in the fields of building physics, civil and building engineering and materials science.
