Title Research in Building Physics and Building Engineering
Proceedings of the 3rd International Building Physics Conference, 27-31 august 2006, Montreal, Canada.
Description Buildings influence people. They account for one third of energy consumption across the globe and represent an annual capital expenditure of 7%-10% of GNP in industrialized countries. Their lifetime operation costs can exceed capital investment. Building Engineering aims to make buildings more efficient, safe and economical. One branch of this discipline, Building Physics/Science, has gained prominence, with a heightened awareness of such phenomena as sick buildings, the energy crisis and sustainability, and considering the performance of buildings in terms of climatic loads and indoor conditions. The book reflects the advanced level and high quality of research which Building Engineering, and Building Physics/Science in particular, have reached at the beginning of the twenty-first century. It will be a valuable resource to: engineers, architects, building scientists, consultants on the building envelope, researchers and graduate students.

Title Proceedings of the 5th International Building Physics Conference (IBPC), Kyoto, Japan,May 28-31, 2012
Description The main theme of the conference was “The Role of Building Physics in Resolving the Carbon Reduction Challenge and the Promotion of Human Health in Buildings.”The 4th report of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) has covered the detailed and acrimonious discussions that have occurred in COP (Conference of the Parties) meetings. Thus, the reduction of CO2 emissions and energy consumption have become essential issues. Moreover, the need for a healthy and comfortable indoor environment is a critical issue because of a rapidly aging society with a declining younger generation. This has inevitably raised concerns about energy usage in buildings, which constitutes a large fraction of the total energy consumption.

International Journal of Building Physics

Editor Mark Bomberg
Publisher Sage Publications
Description The Journal of Building Physics, formerly known as the Journal of Thermal Envelope and Building Science, focuses on the thermal performance of building materials, particularly thermal insulation systems. The journal provides a permanent record of achievements in the science, technology and economics of building envelope. Implicit is the recognition and appropriate publication of the accomplishments of all participating interests.
