Introduction to Building Physics

Instructor Support
This book will help anticipate the performance and consequences of alternate designs as well as determine technical solutions before critical design and construction decisions can be made. The state and operation of the building envelope—walls, roofs, and foundation—are analyzed as well as the physical process components: heat, moisture, and air transfer. This book focuses on the theories behind the physical problems that may arise and the mathematical models used to arrive at needed solutions.
Learner Support
Each chapter includes an explanation of the chapter (role), the objectives for the chapter, introduction to the chapter, glossary, self-evaluation questions, and a summary.
