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.

Physico-Chemistry of Solid-Gas Interfaces: Concepts and Methodology for Gas Sensor Development
English | Physics, Chemistry | 24. November 2008 | ISBN-10: 1848210418 | 432 pages | Pdf | 7.8 mb
Fundamental elementary facts and theoretical tools for the interpretation and model development of solid-gas interactions are first presented in this work.

Physico-Chemistry of Solid-Gas Interfaces
Chemical, physical and electrochemical aspects are presented from a phenomenological, thermodynamic and kinetic point of view. The theoretical aspects of electrical properties on the surface of a solid are also covered to provide greater accessibility for those with a physico-chemical background. The second part is devoted to the development of devices for gas detection in a system approach. Methods for experimental investigations concerning solid-gas interactions are first described. Results are then presented in order to support the contribution made by large metallic elements to the electronic processes associated with solid-gas interactions.

Understanding Distillation Using Column Profile Maps
English | Chemical & Biochemical Engineering | January 2013 | ISBN-10: 1118145402 | 384 pages | pdf | 5 mb
Researchers share their pioneering graphical method for designing almost any distillation structure

Understanding Distillation Using Column Profile Maps
Developed by the authors in collaboration with other researchers at the Centre of Material and Process Synthesis, column profile maps (CPMs) enable chemical engineers to design almost any distillation structure using novel graphical techniques. The CPM method offers tremendous advantages over other design methods because it is generalized and not constrained to a particular piece of equipment.

enables readers to understand, analyze, and design distillation structures to solve common distillation problems, including distillation by simple columns, side rectifiers and strippers, multiple feed columns, and fully thermally coupled columns. In addition, the book presents advanced topics such as reactive distillation, membrane permeation, and validation of thermodynamic models. For all these processes, the authors set forth easy-to-follow design techniques, solution strategies, and insights gained using CPMs.

This book offers everything needed to fully understand and use CPMs as a design tool:

Figures help readers understand how to use CPMs as design and optimization tools
Examples clearly illustrate how to solve specific problems using CPMs
Tutorials allow readers to explore key concepts through experimentation
Design and Optimization of Distillation Systems software package, developed for this book, enables readers to reproduce the examples in the book, follow the tutorials, and begin designing their own distillation systems

Continuum Thermodynamics: Part I: Foundations

Krzysztof Wilmanski, "Continuum Thermodynamics: Part I: Foundations"
2009 | ISBN: 9812835563 | 420 pages | PDF | 9 MB
This book is a unique presentation of thermodynamic methods of construction of continuous models. It is based on a uniform approach following from the entropy inequality and using Lagrange multipliers as auxiliary quantities in its evaluation. It covers a wide range of models — ideal gases, thermoviscoelastic fluids, thermoelastic and thermoviscoelastic solids, plastic polycrystals, miscible and immiscible mixtures, and many others. The structure of phenomenological thermodynamics is justified by a systematic derivation from the Liouville equation, through the BBGKY-hierarchy-derived Boltzmann equation, to an extended thermodynamics. In order to simplify the reading, an extensive introduction to classical continuum mechanics and thermostatics is included. As a complementary volume to Part II, which will contain applications and examples, and to Part III, which will cover numerical methods, only a few simple examples are presented in this first Part. One exception is an extensive example of a linear poroelastic material because it will not appear in future Parts.

The book is the first presentation of continuum thermodynamics in which foundations of continuum mechanics, microscopic foundations and transition to extended thermodynamics, applications of extended thermodynamics beyond ideal gases, and thermodynamic foundations of various material theories are exposed in a uniform and rational way. The book may serve both as a support for advanced courses as well as a desk reference.

Contents: Introduction; Geometry; Kinematics; Balance Equations; Second Law of Thermodynamics; Equilibrium Gibbs Thermodynamics; Kinetic Theories; Extended Thermodynamics; Thermodynamical Model of Viscoelastic Materials; Elasto-viscoplastic Materials; Thermodynamics of Miscible Mixtures; Thermodynamics of Immiscible Mixtures: Introduction and Models Without the Field of Porosity; Thermodynamics of Poroelastic Materials with the Balance Equation of Porosity; Final Remarks; Appendices:; Vectors and Tensors on Euclidean Spaces; Basic Physical Units.
