Building Engineering - Concordia University Libraries Recent Acquisitions

Titles in the call number range TH (Building Engineering) that were added to the Concordia University Libraries collection in the last 60 days.


  • Mechanisation in building / H.G. Vallings
    TH 145 V26+ 1975

  • The design of prismatic and cylindrical shell roofs
    TH 2416 Y5 1958

  • Cogeneration and district energy systems : modelling, analysis and optimization / Marc A. Rosen and Seama Koohi-Fayegh
    TH 7641 R67 2016eb

    District energy (DE) systems use central heating and/or cooling facilities to provide heating and/or cooling services for communities and can be particularly beneficial when integrated with cogeneration plants for electricity and heat. This book provides information on district energy and cogeneration technologies, and the systems that combine them, with a focus on their modelling, analysis and optimization.

    Topics covered include a brief introduction to district heating and cogeneration; background material on thermodynamics and exergy analyses; models for cogeneration, heating and district heating, and chilling and district cooling; descriptions and analyses of configurations for integrating cogeneration and DE technologies; economics of cogeneration and DE; environmental impact of cogeneration systems, including wastes and carbon dioxide emissions and their allocations; modelling and optimization of cogeneration-based district energy systems accounting for economics and environmental impact; developments and advances in technologies and systems for cogeneration and DE; and future directions.

    Examples and case studies are included throughout the book to illustrate the material covered, and to demonstrate the importance, benefits and value of cogeneration and district energy technologies in achieving sustainable and efficient energy systems.


  • Lightning Flash
    TH9057

  • Forensic analysis of fire debris and explosives / Kenyon Evans-Nguyen, Katherine Hutches, editors
    TH 9180 F67 2019eb

  • Fundamentals of building construction : materials and methods / Edward Allen and Joseph Iano
    TH 145 A417 2019eb

    THE #1 REFERENCE ON BUILDING CONSTRUCTION--UPDATED FROM THE GROUND UP

    Edward Allen and Joseph Iano's Fundamentals of Building Construction has been the go-to reference for thousands of professionals and students of architecture, engineering, and construction technology for over thirty years. The materials and methods described in this new Seventh Edition have been thoroughly updated to reflect the latest advancements in the industry. Carefully selected and logically arranged topics--ranging from basic building methods to the principles of structure and enclosure--help readers gain a working knowledge of the field in an enjoyable, easy-to-understand manner. All major construction systems, including light wood frame, mass timber, masonry, steel frame, light gauge steel, and reinforced concrete construction, are addressed.

    Now in its Seventh Edition, Fundamentals of Building Construction contains substantial revisions and updates. New illustrations and photographs reflect the latest practices and developments in the industry. Revised chapters address exterior wall systems and high-performance buildings, an updated and comprehensive discussion of building enclosure science, evolving tools for assessing environmental and health impacts of building materials, and more. New and exciting developments in mass timber construction are also included.

    This Seventh Edition includes:

    125 new or updated illustrations and photographs, as well as 40 new photorealistic renderings The latest in construction project delivery methods, construction scheduling, and trends in information technology affecting building design and construction Updated discussion of the latest LEED and Living Building Challenge sustainability standards along with expanded coverage of new methods for assessing the environmental impacts of materials and buildings Expanded coverage of mass timber materials, fire resistance of mass timber, and the design and construction of tall wood buildings Revised end-of-chapter sections, including references, websites, key terminology, review questions, and exercises Fully-updated collection of best-in-class ancillary materials: PowerPoint lecture slides, Instructor's Manual, Test Bank, Interactive Exercises, and more Companion book, Exercises in Building Construction , available in print and eBook format

    For the nuts and bolts on building construction practices and materials, Fundamentals of Building Construction: Materials and Methods, 7th Edition lays the foundation that every architect and construction professional needs to build a successful career.
