Energy And Environment In Architecture

RRP $428.99

A unique and revolutionary text which explains the principles behind the LT Method (2.1), a manual design tool developed in Cambridge by the BRE. The LT Method is a unique way of estimating the combined energy usage of lighting, heating, cooling and ventilation systems, to enable the designer to make comparisons between options at an early, strategic stage.
In addition,Energy and Environment in Architecture the book deals with other environmental issues such as noise, thermal comfort and natural ventilation design. A variety of case studies provide a critique of real buildings and highlight good practice. These topics include thermal comfort, noise and natural ventilation.

A Student Guide To Energy

RRP $656.99

With energy issues so much in the news, it is important that students get a clear understanding of how energy is produced and how it affects virtually every aspect of our lives. The multivolume set A Student Guide to Energy does just that, with an accessible introduction to the basic concepts and key topics concerning nonrenewable energy sources, future renewable energy programs, and the importance of achieving a sustainable energy program for future generations. A Student Guide to Energy is divided into five separate volumes. Volume 1 highlights our present dependence on nonrenewable energy sources-oil, gas, coal, and nuclear power. Volumes 2, 3, and 4 look at the renewable energy sources that will play a vital role in our future, including solar energy, hydrogen fuel cells, wind and water power, and geothermal energy. The concluding volume focuses on efforts to develop a global sustainable energy system that encompasses energy efficiency, conservation, and a healthy, cleaner environment.

Nuclear Energy For Hydrogen Generation 2016

RRP $491.99

* Explains how to use nuclear process heat for industrial applications, especially process heat for hydrogen production * Illuminates the issue of waste heat in nuclear plants, offering a vision for how it can be used in combined-cycle plants * Undertakes the thermal analysis of intermediate heat exchangers throughout the life cycle, from the design perspective through operational and safety assurance stages This book describes recent technological developments in next generation nuclear reactors that have created renewed interest in nuclear process heat for industrial applications. The author's discussion mirrors the industry's emerging focus on combined cycle Next Generation Nuclear Plants' (NGNP) seemingly natural fit in producing electricity and process heat for hydrogen production. To utilize this process heat, engineers must uncover a thermal device that can transfer the thermal energy from the NGNP to the hydrogen plant in the most performance efficient and cost effective way possible. This book is written around that vital quest, and the author describes the usefulness of the Intermediate Heat Exchanger (IHX) as a possible solution. The option to transfer heat and thermal energy via a single-phase forced convection loop where fluid is mechanically pumped between the heat exchangers at the nuclear and hydrogen plants is presented, and challenges associated with this tactic are discussed. As a second option, heat pipes and thermosyphons, with their ability to transport very large quantities of heat over relatively long distance with small temperature losses, are also examined.
