Energy-Efficient Timber-Glass Houses by Vesna Žegarac Leskovar, Miroslav Premrov

By Vesna Žegarac Leskovar, Miroslav Premrov

The booklet discusses combining trees and glass, eco fabrics, so one can constructing an optimum modern energy-efficient residence with an enticing layout. moreover, the ebook connects an architectural layout technique with structural study to teach the chances of stabilizing the construction with an elevated measurement of the glazing.

Research effects the place the glazing is taken into account as a load-bearing structural point are for that reason awarded in a way resulting in the improvement of an optimum version of the timber-glass residence, contemplating either the structural and effort comparable features. The offered study paintings will be necessary to designers and destiny specialists of their making plans of optimum energy-efficient trees constructions.

The learn relies on utilizing bushes and glass, that have been formerly ignored as building fabrics. With appropriate technological improvement and applicable use, they're these days changing into crucial development fabrics so far as strength potency is worried. even though, their mixed use is intensely advanced, from either the constructional standpoint in addition to from that of power potency and units a number of traps for designers. an exceptional wisdom in their merits and disadvantages is therefore extremely important, that is proven within the current monograph.

Energy-efficient timber-glass homes was once chosen by way of the Slovenian nationwide examine employer as a rare medical success within the box of technical sciences/civil engineering for the yr 2013.

Ciba Foundation Symposium 132 - Motor Areas of the Cerebral Cortex

Contains the lawsuits of a symposium held on the Ciba beginning, London, February 1987. Addresses major matters and new options within the research of motor parts of the cerebral cortex in people and animals. stories the old improvement of the examine of cortical constitution and serve as, examines anatomical connections of motor components, and surveys physiological reviews of cortical components in wakeful primates.

Self-Organizing Natural Intelligence: Issues of Knowing, Meaning, and Complexity

Self-Organizing traditional Intelligence brings new medical ways to intelligence learn that's at present less than the impression of mostly classical nineteenth century unmarried causal concept and technique. This out-dated classical process has ended in the single-capacity g-theory, a "central processor," top-down, genetically made up our minds linguistic view of intelligence that's at once contradicted via empirical proof of human and animal reviews of intelligence.

ICT Innovations 2012: Secure and Intelligent Systems

The current degree of the human civilization is the e-society, that is construct over the achievements got through the advance of the knowledge and conversation applied sciences. It impacts everybody, from usual cellphone clients to designers of top of the range business items, and each human task, from taking therapy to bettering the nation governing.

Besides thermal conductivity and density, the specific heat capacity (c) of each material composing the building envelope is crucial for the dynamic response of a building. These properties influence the time interval, also called time lag, between Fig. 12 Graphical presentation of different insulating materials 30 2 Energy-Efficient Building Design the moment when the highest temperature appears on the external building’s surface and the moment when the highest temperature is reached on the internal surface.

25). 6 Design of Passive Strategies 45 Fig. 3 Natural Ventilation Natural ventilation is primarily used to supply fresh air to the building. On average, a human being needs a minimum of 8 l of fresh air per second. An adequate fresh air provision depends on the number of persons in the room and their activity. To assure the physiological needs and to maintain the internal air quality, fresh air can be supplied either by natural or mechanical ventilation. With natural ventilation, it is necessary to control the outdoor air temperature to prevent larger infiltration heat losses or gains which could appear in case of a large difference between the interior and exterior temperature.

More reliable shading measures can be taken through external shading devices. These are more effective at reducing unwanted solar gain than internal shades and stop the sun from penetrating through the glazing. External shading devices can be fixed or operable. Fixed devices are usually cheaper but do not allow for optimal year-round adjustments to the geometry of the solar inclination angles. 5 Basic Design Parameters 35 Fig. 15 Shading provided by vegetation General types of external shading devices are vertical, horizontal and egg-crate devices [24], in addition to screens.
