Description

Analysis and Design of Energy Geostructures: Theoretical Essentials and Practical Application gathers the theoretical, experimental and design knowledge available on energy geostructures. The book covers the interdisciplinary and integrated competences required in the energy, geotechnical and structural analysis and design of energy geostructures that engineers, architects and urban project managers face. The analysis and design of energy geostructures requires a broad range of competences to be carried out, including the fundamentals of heat and mass transfers and their application in energy analysis and design. In addition, the mechanics of geomaterials and structures and the application of this knowledge is imperative.

In this innovative framework of energy geostructures, all previous competences must be considered through a holistic and integrated approach to account for a number of unprecedented aspects. This book presents a variety of practical exercises on key aspects governing the behavior and performance of energy geostructures and their analysis and design.

Key Features

  • Explores the fundamentals of heat and mass transfer and presents these concepts for the energy analysis and design of energy geostructures
  • Presents theoretical essentials and practical applications on geotechnics, geomechanics, structural mechanics, heat transfer and building physics
  • Summarizes and discusses the most recent scientific knowledge about energy geostructures, including energy piles, energy walls and energy tunnels

Readership
