Sustainable Green Spaces in the Compact City
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book examines the role of green spaces in compensating for what are considered to be the main deterrents to city centre living. The aim is to offer a perspective on how to incorporate greenery in the common open spaces of high density developments. To explore the role of urban nature, two case studies in London have been assessed. Both of these high density housing developments have a perimeter block typology and provide significant semi-private green spaces for their residents. The study concludes that balancing density with adequate access to urban nature can change people s perception of the environment and gives recommendations on how to incorporate different types of landscape in high density developments.

The Art of Place

The first book from this celebrated American designer and architect known for creating spaces that balance historic detail and modern elegance.The work of architect and interior designer Lee Ledbetter represents a one-of-a-kind combination of traditional details and chic Modernism. Lee Ledbetter established his practice in New Orleans in 1996 and has developed a body of work that emerges from his ability to incorporate historical precedent as well as regional and environmental context, and his firm has received recognition for its expertise well beyond its Deep South roots. Ledbetter's interiors and architecture combine a cleanly tailored and bright modernity with the unapologetic embellishments of refined and luxurious decoration. Ledbetter strongly believes design to be a fine art along with painting and sculpture, and he considers placement and scale of furniture, artwork, and lighting as carefully as he does the creation of walls and the spaces they contain. As Mayer Rus, who provides the text for this title, once wrote in House & Garden, "Lee Ledbetter rejects the idea that a serious architect cannot be a dedicated decorator as well."

Green Lighting Technology
87,30 € *

Meeting the challenges of the sustainable living in a world with fast-diminishing finite resources, calls for a fundamental change in the way we use these resources. The reliance on natural light to illuminate our interiors represents a good opportunity to have a healthy indoor environment, a clear atmosphere, and a great occasion to save nonrenewable energies and to save money. The planned use of natural light has become an important strategy to improve energy efficiency. The amount of energy demand generated by the use of lamps is considerable and gives the possibility of significant savings by daylighting. Since the windows alone don't provide the satisfactory daylighting for deep spaces due to the poor penetration in the space, this book introduces an integrated approach that incorporates channeling daylight into the building's core spaces within the named, daylight transport systems. This book develops a designing tool to support designers to incorporate the offered Green Lighting Technologies into their designs to create healthier indoor environments, achieve environmental preservation and energy efficiency.

Constraint-Handling in Evolutionary Optimization
160,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Evolutionary algorithms (EAs), as well as other bio-inspired heuristics, are widely usedto solvenumericaloptimizationproblems.However,intheir or- inal versions, they are limited to unconstrained search spaces i.e they do not include a mechanism to incorporate feasibility information into the ?tness function. On the other hand, real-world problems usually have constraints in their models. Therefore, a considerable amount of research has been d- icated to design and implement constraint-handling techniques. The use of (exterior) penalty functions is one of the most popular methods to deal with constrained search spaces when using EAs. However, other alternative me- ods have been proposed such as: special encodings and operators, decoders, the use of multiobjective concepts, among others. An e?cient and adequate constraint-handling technique is a key element in the design of competitive evolutionary algorithms to solve complex op- mization problems. In this way, this subject deserves special research e?orts. After asuccessfulspecialsessiononconstraint-handlingtechniquesusedin evolutionary algorithms within the Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC) in 2007, and motivated by the kind invitation made by Dr. Janusz Kacprzyk, I decided to edit a book, with the aim of putting together recent studies on constrained numerical optimization using evolutionary algorithms and other bio-inspired approaches. The intended audience for this book comprises graduate students, prac- tionersandresearchersinterestedonalternativetechniquestosolvenumerical optimization problems in presence of constraints.

Urban Agriculture Facilitates Community Building
46,20 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In her book, Lessard explains that communities ideally need four different kinds of capital to succeed: economic, social, environmental, and human. Lessard argues that all four kinds of capital must be developed simultaneously for optimal success, and that urban agriculture can facilitate this need. Furthermore, Lessard contends, urban planners must consider these needs and develop plans that incorporate space for community gardens, which add long-term value to land, restore natural spaces in urban areas, benefit residents by offering affordable local food, and in general improve the lives of residents and the health of the community by encouraging people to become more engaged and active. Additionally, Lessard concludes, community gardens encourage the building of social networks that allow for the sharing of multicultural and multigenerational values, thereby uniting the larger community and making residents feel more invested over the long term.

Coupled Multi-zone Hygrothermal-airflow Analysis
60,70 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Combined heat and multi-zone airflow modeling is today widely recognized as necessary to predict air distribution in partitioned spaces and to perform precise energy calculations. In addition to the information about energy and airflow behavior, moisture content is also an important parameter in the design of comfortable and healthy buildings. As moisture is strongly coupled to the energy and to the airflow, vapor transfer in buildings has to be investigated using integrated heat, air and moisture (HAM) models. During the past decade, a number of HAM models have been developed and validated worldwide for analysis the hygrothermal transport in buildings. However, very few models incorporate the critical hygrothermal interactions between the building envelope and multi-zone airflow. The objective of this book is to develop a model for predicting coupled multi-zone hygrothermal airflow transfer in air-conditioned buildings. The whole building heat, moisture and airflow transfer model calculates the interactions between multi-zone airflow and main hygrothermal effects in a building.
