The Building Environment: Active and Passive Control Systems
To capitalize on today's rapidly evolving, specialized technologies, architects, designers, builders, and contractors work together to plan the mechanical and electrical equipment that controls the indoor environment of a building. , Third Edition helps you take advantage of design innovations and construction strategies that maximize the comfort, safety, and energy efficiency of buildings. From active HVAC systems to passive methods, lighting to on-site power generation, this updated edition explains how to strategically plan for and incorporate effective, efficient systems in today's buildings. It covers the underlying thermal theories and thermodynamic principles and focuses on design that enhances the building environment and minimizes the impact on the world's environment. The Building Environment goes beyond the ABCs of HVAC and covers: On-site power generation, including wind turbines, solar photovoltaic cells, fuel cells, and more. Plumbing systems, fire protection, signal systems, conveying systems, and architectural acoustics. Procedures and/or formulas for performing heat loss, heat gain, and energy use calculations, determining the rate of heat flow, calculating solar energy utilization, doing load calculations, and more. Details on the latest building codes and standards references. New information on the sustainable design of building systems and energy efficiency, including new technologies. The latest thinking and data on a building's impact on the environment, indoor air quality, and "sick building syndrome." Design economics, including the payback period, life-cycle cost, comparative value analysis, and building commissioning. A practical on-the-job tool for architects, designers, builders, engineers, contractors, and other specialists, this Third Edition is also a great reference for architecture students who will lead tomorrow's design teams.

Science and Psychiatry: Groundbreaking Discoveries in Molecluar Neuroscience [Repost]

Solomon H. Snyder – Science and Psychiatry: Groundbreaking Discoveries in Molecluar Neuroscience
Published: 2008-03-15 | ISBN: 1585622737 | PDF | 513 pages | 6 MB

A pioneer in the identification of receptors for neurotransmitters and drugs and in the explanation of the actions of psychotropic agents, Solomon Snyder has been instrumental in the establishment of modern psychopharmacology.Science and Psychiatry is a collection of some of his best scientific papers from the past forty years, representing important advances in psychopharmacology and molecular biology. Some offer insight into modern neuroscience to help make sense of available psychotropic medications and point the way toward more effective and safer agents; others describe the underpinnings of psychopharmacology that practitioners need to know, especially regarding the role of receptors in drug action.
The articles cover nine areas of research with particular attention to four groups of extraordinary discoveries for which Snyder is widely recognized: the identification of opiate receptors, characterization of the IP3 receptor, the establishment of nitric oxide as a transmitter in the brain, and the discovery that D-serine is the normal stimulus for the glycine site of the NMDA receptor. Each section is accompanied by a commentary by a well-known authority that puts the discoveries in perspective. Together, they attest to the rich diversity of Snyder s research while conveying the origins of modern psychopharmacologic practice.
