About this product
- DescriptionMany people, professionals and n-professionals alike, recognize that it is of critical importance to solve global energy and environmental issues. For this purpose, it is essential to have a scientific understanding of what is meant by the energy issue is and the environmental issue. The concept of exergy is a scientific concept that exactly fits. The concept of 'energy' is a scientifically-well established concept, namely 'to be conserved'. Then the question is what is really consumed. Exergy: Theory and Applications in the Built Environment is dedicated to answer this fundamental question by discussing the theory of exergy and by demonstrating its use extensively to describe a variety of systems in particular for built-environmental conditioning. Our immediate environmental space works within the flow of energy and matter in an exergy-entropy process, and the built environment can be designed with these energy & environmental issues in mind. Exergy: Theory and Applications in the Built Environment introduces readers who are t familiar with thermodynamics to the concept of exergy with a variety of discussion on the built-environmental space such as heating, cooling, lighting, and others. Readers, including students, researchers, planners, architects and engineers, will obtain a better picture of a sustainable built-environment.
- Author BiographyMasanori Shukuya is Professor at Department of Restoration Ecology and Built Environment and Graduate School of Environmental and Information Studies, Tokyo City University (TCU), Japan. The ongoing projects at his Laboratory of Building Environment include: development of exergy evaluation methods for various built-environmental systems using low-exergy sources; experimental studies on human responses to actual built-environmental space with passive- and active-system designs; and the development of built-environmental education (preschool to university) for better knowledge transfer. He has been actively involved in international research cooperation including participation in the International Energy Agency (IEA) and Energy Conservation in Buildings and Community Systems (ECBCS), and others. He was an Otto-Monsted Visiting Professor at the Technical University of Denmark in 2008 and 2009. Masanori Shukuya was awarded the prize of the Architectural Institute of Japan (AIJ) for Research in 2001 for his remarkable achievement in exergy research on the built environment. He was also awarded the Prize of AIJ for Education in 2012 for his outstanding contribution to the advancement of architectural education with respect to the built-environmental systems to be in harmony with the global environmental system. He has published Light and Heat in the Built Environment: An Approach by Numerical Simulation (1993), Seeking Symbiotic Architecture (1999), and Theory on Exergy and Environment (2004) in Japanese and many scientific papers in Japanese and English.
