Summary
Indoor climate is determined by rational lighting, heating, cooling and ventilating systems. For occupants' well-being it should be consistent with how regional outdoor climate works in the flow of radiation via four paths of heat transfer: radiation; convection; conduction; and evaporation. This book starts with the relationship between the human body and its immediate environmental space followed by a brief introduction of passive and active systems for indoor climate conditioning. The nature of light and heat is discussed with a focus on building envelope systems such as walls and windows, and then examined from the viewpoint of thermodynamics and human-biology. Some examples are given to enable a better understanding of luminous and thermal characteristics of our most immediate environment particularly for those professionally involved in environmental planning, designing, and engineering to know about bio-climatic design principle
Biographical or historical data
Masanori Shukuya, Ph.D., is a professor at the Department of Restoration Ecology and Built Environment and at the Graduate School of Environmental and Information Studies, Yokohama campus, Tokyo City University (YC-TCU). His major interests in research and education are 1) the development of exergy evaluation methods for various builtenvironmental systems for human thermal comfort with the rational use of various exergy resources; 2) the development of a method for the holistic approach to built-environmental education
