Low-Energy Cooling Technologies for Buildings: Challenges and Opportunities for the Environmental Control of Buildings
The papers presented in this volume explore the current state-of-the-art developments in the application of latest technologies such as:
* Night ventilation for cooling
* Slab cooling
* Desiccant dehumidification and evaporative cooling
* Chiled ceilings with displacement ventilation
* Mixed-mode ventilation systems
* Case studies and building examples
Low Energy Cooling Technologies for Buildings also covers design and control requirements and the tools and techniques needed for the successful integration of these technologies into the building structure.
Design tools for low energy cooling technologies (S. Law).
Night ventilation for cooling - field tests and design tools (M. Kolokotroni).
Slab coolingand the TermoDeck system (G. D. Braham).
Mixed-mode ventilation for buildings (W. Bordass and D Jaunzens).
Chilled ceilings and displacement ventilation - do they work? (F. Alamdari and D. Butler).
Positive temperature eutectic thermal energy storage systems (Z. Ure).
