Book

Author: ASHRAE
Organization: ASHRAE
The 2017 ASHRAE Handbook—Fundamentals covers basic principles and data used in the HVAC and refrigeration industry. It covers basic principles such as thermodynamics, psychrometrics, and heat transfer, providing practical guidance on building envelope, indoor environmental quality, load...
Author: John Straube
As the author states in the Introduction, Chapter One, “the environmental damage caused by a building’s energy consumption and its production is by far the largest impact, usually dwarfing the impact of the materials used to construct a building.” This book is intended to provide students with a...
Author: Carl-Eric Hagentoft
This book focuses on the theories behind the physical problems that may arise and the mathematical models used to arrive at needed solutions.
Author: Mark Bomberg and Tomasz Kisilewicz
This a basic text on heat, air flow, and moisture based on years of research, teaching, and writing on these issues. It includes chapters on the durability of materials, materials in environmental control, and hygrothermal insulations. The hardcover version is Methods of Building Physics by Bomberg...
