Sustainable Building Design
145,52 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book bridges the gap between research and practice in the area of sustainable design of buildings, exploring the passive (climate-responsive) design and thermal behavior of buildings and ways to incorporate these enhancements in architectural and civil engineering practice. It presents climatic data and its analysis in a readily usable form and shows ways in which such data can be used to achieve passive (climate-responsive) and sustainable building design. The book presents case studies of sustainable building in each of five climatic zones of India. The book includes climatic data from 62 cities in India and describes how it can be synthesized in sustainable building design.The book can serve as a practical tool or handbook for architects, engineers, and designers, providing them with an understanding of the physical phenomena involved and a means for suitably implementing and applying passive (climate-responsive) design principles. It also offers a valuable resource for researchers, students, and policymakers working in the area of sustainable building design and construction.

Nicolai C. Striewe analyzes potential opportunistic behavior of REIT managers and provides empirical evidence on the effectiveness of institutional monitoring as a corporate governance mechanism. The author also suggests ways to promote sustainable management by means of institutional participation. The results of his study provide valuable insights to enhance corporate governance, transparency and efficiency in the REIT market. They encourage (a) academics to include a behavioral component into studies of the REIT market, (b) REIT managers to incorporate effective monitoring and control mechanisms, (c) investors to become more aware of agency conflicts in REITs and (d) policy makers to facilitate a legal framework conducive to a sustainable REIT market.

Sustainable Open Pit Mine Design
33,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

There is an increasing interest among practitioners to incorporate sustainability issues in evaluating the projects. However, it is a complex task to deal with the conflicting aspects of sustainable development. Nowadays, most of the minerals are produced by surface mining methods, and one could say that the economic, social and environmental impacts of these operations are closely related to Ultimate Pit Limit (UPL), and it may have a significant contribution on the sustainability of the mining community. UPL determination is a strategic decision and it requires a Decision Support System to evaluate and understand the outcome of each alternative for optimal decision-making. This book, therefore, discusses the concept of sustainable development generally and in the field of mining engineering. It provides the models for determination of cut-off grade and UPL with respect to the concepts of sustainable development. Reading of this book is especially recommended for those who are interested in responsible and sustainable mining.

Incorporating Sustainability in Transport Planning
70,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

An increasing number of agencies are taking steps to incorporate the concept of sustainability in the regional transportation planning process. Planning for sustainable transportation systems should at the very least incorporate their broader impacts on system effectiveness, environmental integrity, economic development, and the social quality of life. This book reviews definitions, performance measures, and evaluation methodologies for transportation system sustainability and demonstrates a framework for incorporating sustainability considerations in transportation planning and decision making. Through a case study using data from the Atlanta Metropolitan Region, the study evaluates competing transportation and land use plans based on a broad range of sustainability parameters using spatial/environmental analyses and multicriteria decision making methods. The analysis should help shed some light on this emerging area, and should be especially useful to professionals/decision makers in Transportation fields, or anyone else who may be interested in sustainable transportation systems.

The growing trend towards sustainable and ethically designed textile and clothing is not only helping to create a greener planet, it also created a whole new job market. The sustainable design being part of the education process may give us a considerable edge in the industry, while learning to incorporate sustainable practices at process inception will add both a competitive advantage and encourage eco-design. The design education practice will help solve the challenges of sustainable development by ensuring that the next generation of leaders have the skills to address future challenges, that our education programs continue to transfer sustainability knowledge and skills and engage students on questions regarding future sustainable development, that our research continues to contribute to societal wellbeing with innovative solutions, and finally that our campuses continue to be showcases and living laboratories for new ways to enable sustainable development where students'groups focus on a major societal challenge to develop their capacity for critical thinking, interdisciplinary group work, and sustainable behavior.
