Natural Ventilation in Buildings : a design handbook / editor Francis Allard

£24.99

Product description

This hardback book is in excellent condition. The cover has minor bumping at corners, but is otherwise in excellent condition. The previous owner has inked his name on the free front end paper, but otherwise internally the pages are in excellent condition - clean, tight and unmarked with minimal signs of use. The CD is present in a pocket inside the back cover, and appears to be unopened.

The benefits -- environmental, economic, and for occupants’ comfort and health -- of ventilating buildings naturally, rather than mechanically, are becoming increasingly recognized and sought after. Approaches can be high-tech or low-tech, but always need to be part of an integrated design approach. A range of technical barriers, such as building codes, fire regulations and acoustics, also need to be taken into account. This new handbook describes the real potential of natural ventilation, its appropriate use, the design and dimensioning methodologies, the need for an integrated design approach, and how to overcome barriers. It includes a CD with software to assist in the calculation of airflow rate in natural ventilation configurations. The book provides essential design information for all architects, building engineers and other building design professionals. The work was coordinated by Mat Santamouris from the University of Athens, Greece, and involved experts in numerous European countries.

Oxfam Books & Music Beeston

The Beeston books and music shop is situated near to Nottingham University, close to the city of Nottingham. There is a train station nearby. We offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, academic books, and rare or collectable items. There is a wide variety of music, including sheet music and a good selection of high quality classical, rock and pop vinyl. The volunteer team is a diverse mix from the local community, and University. We are currently recruiting for a quality control volunteer. We always welcome good quality, saleable donations which can be delivered to our rear entrance.
