About this Textbook

This book provides thorough coverage of the most important building physics phenomena: heat transfer, moisture, sound/acoustics, and illumination. Since the book is primarily aimed at engineers, it addresses professional issues with due pragmatism, and by including many practical examples and related ISO standards. Nevertheless, in order to guarantee full comprehension, it also explains the underlying physical principles and relates them to practical aspects in a simple and clear way. This is achieved with the aid of more than 100 figures and consistent cross-referencing of formulas and ideas. In addition, interrelationships between the different building physics phenomena are elucidated in a way that will enable readers to develop performance specifications that inform the design process. The book will primarily appeal to students of civil engineering and architecture, as well as to all practitioners in these areas who wish to broaden their fundamental understanding of topics in building physics.

About the authors

Marko Pinterić received his doctorate at University of Zagreb, Croatia.  He is currently Professor at University of Maribor, Slovenia, where he has taught various physics-related subjects for 10 years. His experience includes 15 years of research in physics of condensed matter at the Institute of Physics in Zagreb as well as 6 years as head of research and development at a private firm specializing in building physics. He has already published a textbook on physics for students of engineering in the Slovenian language entitled "Introduction to Physics with Solved Problems". In addition, Dr. Pinterić has co-authored 25 research papers published in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
