CLIMATE DRIVEN DESIGN

Christoph Reinhart, in preparation

This book is currently under preparation. It will present a systematic study of the atmospheric conditions around and thermal conditions within buildings. The first part, Energy Use in Buildings, explains how to measure and evaluate environmental performance in terms of energy, carbon emissions and costs. Part two, Climate and Comfort, shows how to analyze a site’s microclimate and discusses our evolving understanding of thermal comfort. Thermal Processes introduces physical phenomena that determine the relationship between indoors and outdoors, namely internal gains, thermal mass, conduction, convection and radiation.
