From the Back Cover
Natural ventilation is increasingly considered a prerequisite for sustainable buildings and is therefore in line with current trends in architecture and the construction industry. The design of naturally ventilated buildings is more difficult and carries greater technical risk than the design of mechanically ventilated buildings. A successful result relies on a good understanding of the abilities and limitations of the theoretical and experimental techniques that form the basis of design.
The underlying difficulties with design arise from the driving forces: wind and buoyancy. Equal prominence is given to these and to their combination. Their importance in relation to achieving the required ventilation strategies is one of the important issues that is covered in some detail.
Natural Ventilation of Buildings: Theory, Measurement and Design comprehensively explains the fundamentals of the theory and measurement of natural ventilation, as well as the current state of knowledge and how this can be applied to design. The book also relates theoretical and experimental techniques to problems faced by designers. Particular attention is given to the limitations of the various techniques and the associated uncertainties.
- Comprehensive coverage of the theory and measurement of natural ventilation
- Detailed coverage of the relevance and application of theoretical and experimental techniques to design
- Highlights the strengths and weaknesses of techniques and their errors and uncertainties
- Comprehensive coverage of mathematical models, including CFD
- Two chapters dedicated to design procedures and another devoted to the basic principles of fluid mechanics that are relevant to ventilation
This comprehensive account of the fundamentals for natural ventilation design will be invaluable to undergraduates and postgraduates who wish to gain an understanding of the topic for the purpose of research or design. The book should also provide a useful source of reference for more experienced practitioners in industry and architecture.

... to much focus on formulas and often does a poor job at providing intuition behind results
on 1 September 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
This book puts to much focus on formulas and often does a poor job at providing intuition behind results. Whether the heavy focus on formulas is a good approach or not would be a matter of taste if the book consistently provided mathematical proofs behind formuals. But as it often doesen't, a lot of them are just a waste of space and an excuse not to explain things in words. Some chapters are better than others. The chapter on univariate time series is not my favorite. What's good about the book is that it covers relevant topics.

Practical and intuitive overview of econometrics
on 30 July 2012 - Published on Amazon.com
This text is just what its product description says it is, practical and intuitive and very clearly written. I turn to this book first before reading something denser such as Woolridge, but the text would make a fine first text. A very good applied companion piece would be Cameron and Trivedi Microeconometrics: Methods and Applications. For the practitioner, start with Guide to refresh yourself and then turn to Microeconometrics to dig deeper and be on the frontier.
The matrix notation which the author emphasizes is important is the worst part since it is not standard notation
on 4 October 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
I just got this book and it is a confusing mess. Most proofs are not explained or clarified, so it just becomes a set of statements with no logical deduction as to why they hold or under what conditions they are correct. The matrix notation which the author emphasizes is important is the worst part since it is not standard notation ...
