This book includes the most recent outcomes from research and professional practice in the ventilative cooling field, gathered by the selected panel of authors. It provides essential contents to face and reduce the rise of space cooling and ventilation energy uses in buildings by alternative ventilation and cooling solutions. The book is organised into three parts which include a detailed description of ventilative cooling boundaries and implications (working principles, KPIs, standards, comfort models, control techniques) and of principal techniques (night ventilation, controlled natural ventilation, hybrid solutions, PCM and mass activation, evaporative cooling, earth-to-air heat exchangers) along with an updated analysis of the background to the topic. Furthermore, the last part of the book defines a unique practical and theoretical framework to include ventilative cooling solutions in different building typologies along with their principal implications.
This book is a result of discussions based on the work of an internationally recognized group of experts, many of which were part of the 4 year project – IEA Annex 62 “Ventilative cooling” , completed in 2018 and led by Per Heiselberg, Aalborg university, Denmark.
The book is available from on-line stores such as Amazon, Springer and Saxo through these direct links (both as an e-book or as the actual hardcover book).
