Building Services Engineering provides for the higher education of building industry professionals, whether on Higher Certificate, Higher Diploma, undergraduate courses or graduate level conversion courses, across the building technology, architectural, surveying and services engineering disciplines. This core textbook introduces the range of building services found within modern buildings. In this fifth edition coverage has been broadened as a response to the trend towards low energy mechanical services systems for the heating and cooling of buildings. New chapters have been included on mechanical transportation, and on understanding units. Now accompanied by a new instructor's resource, the book's style retains its focus on the fundamentals and setting out of applications in a general and easily understood manner.http://depositfiles.com/files/3jvdyzdee

Fire Protection Engineering in Building Design
Fire Protection Engineering in Building Design first edition encompasses not only the basic information on the functions, design, and applications of fire protection systems; but also reveals how this information can and should be integrated with every other major engineering discipline.
Building Construction Handbook
Building Construction Handbook Incorporating Current Building & Construction Regulations, Sixth Edition provides extensive coverage of building construction practice, processes and techniques, representing established procedures as well as those associated with recent amendments to the Building Regulations, British and European Standards and other related references. This approach, combined with the presentation of information in a highly illustrated and unique visual style, has proven this text to be a vital learning resource for thousands of building construction students, and an essential reference for professionals.

Energy Simulation in Building Design
The book's purpose is to help architects, mechanical & environmental engineers and energy & facility managers to understand and apply the emerging computer methods for options appraisal at the individual building, estate, city, region and national levels. This is achieved by interspersing theoretical derivations relating to simulation within an evolving description of the built environment as a complex system.
Building Services Engineering, 4th Edition
The design of building services and the many calculations involved are fully explained, and features include: introductions, learning objectives, key terms and concepts, worked examples and questions to aid understanding, reinforce learning and provide assignments.
Building the Great Pyramid in a Year: An Engineer's Report
The construction of the Great Pyramid as a wonder indeed, while challenging our cherished notions of the arduous labor and extreme human costs required for the project. Starting with his knowledge of project management, the properties of basic materials, and common sense, and giving the Egyptians credit as a sophisticated and well-run society, he shows step by step how they may have built great edifices and enhanced social cohesion at the same time. He posits that some of the implements found at archeological sites were clever labor-saving devices, and using experiments, models and tests he illustrates some ingenious techniques that were well within the scope of Egyptians' technical knowledge.
