Description - Naturally Ventilated Buildings by Derek Clements-Croome

Working and living habits are changing rapidly. Increasingly we need low energy, low pollution, low waste, healthy buildings. Naturally responsive buildings are more likely to achieve these criteria. While there are many historical examples of successful naturally ventilated buildings, standards for indoor climate have tended to emphasise active, mechanical airflow systems rather than passive natural systems. In practice, hybrid systems are common. Despite its importance, knowledge about the performance of naturally ventilated buildings has remained comparatively sparse. This book emphasises the need to consider natural as well as mechanical systems. The design, construction and management of healthy buildings requires co-operation between professionals and the client: architects, engineers and facilities managers must work together to achieve the best results. Naturally Ventilated Buildings is a key reference for the professional and client alike and will be invaluable for higher level undergraduate and postgraduate studies in building services engineering, architecture and architectural engineering, building design engineering and environmental engineering.
