Theory and Applications in the Built Environment
Leveringstid: Sendes innen 21 dager
The concept of 'energy' is a scientifically-well established concept, namely 'to be conserved'. Then the question is what is really consumed. Exergy: Theory and Applications in the Built Environment is dedicated to answer this fundamental question by discussing the theory of "exergy" and by demonstrating its use extensively to describe a variety of systems in particular for built-environmental conditioning. Our immediate environmental space works within the flow of energy and matter in an "exergy-entropy" process, and the built environment can be designed with these energy & environmental issues in mind.
Exergy: Theory and Applications in the Built Environment introduces readers who are not familiar with thermodynamics to the concept of exergy with a variety of discussion on the built-environmental space such as heating, cooling, lighting, and others. Readers, including students, researchers, planners, architects and engineers, will obtain a better picture of a sustainable built-environment.
