Synopses & Reviews
This book and CD Rom package provides an accessible, user-friendly database on daylight design data. With the boom in interest in energy-efficiency and solar design, it provides a valuable source for architects and engineers.
It describes models which can be used to provide essential data at any place in the world. These models are included on a disk to ease the task of the architect or engineers. The authors show how these models can be applied to the energy efficient design of buildings.
Electronic product for calculation of data at any point in the world.
Very important data source.
Looks at current green building design issues
Book News Annotation:
Muneer (energy engineering, Napier University, Edinburgh) utilizes his 20 years of experience dealing with data from India, USA, African and the UK. Emphasizing the importance of good structure in the presentation of computational algorithms, chapters present his selection of applicable formulae. The CD-ROM includes computer programs (executable and Fortran versions) covering almost all aspects of solar radiation and daylight related computations. All programs are introduced via examples. Electronic databases with solar and other data are also included.
