Guide vert de l'ASHRAE : conception, construction et fonctionnement d'immeubles répondant aux exigences de la durabilité.

ASHRAE GreenGuide: the design, construction, and operation of sustainable buildings.

Auteurs : ASHRAE, Butterworth-Heinemann

Type de monographie : Ouvrage, Guide/Manuel


This guide provides guidance to designers of HVAC&R systems in how to participate effectively on design teams charged with producing green buildings. It also covers green design techniques applicable to related technical disciplines, such as plumbing and lighting, and it addresses how mechanical and electrical systems may interact with and be influenced by architectural design. Extract from the table of contents: Basics: green/sustainable high-performance design; background and fundamentals. The design process: commissioning; architectural design impacts; early stages; LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) guidance for HVAC engineers; conceptual engineering design: load determination; space thermal/comfort delivery systems (indoor air quality; energy delivery methods; provision of outside air ventilation mechanical ventilation); interaction with the local environment (indoor environmental quality; cooling tower systems; district energy systems; water consumption due to cooling system operation; acoustics; cooling system heat sinks; green roof and cool roof technologies; designing healthy buildings); energy distribution systems; energy conversion systems (cooling generators; chilled-water plants); energy/water sources; lighting systems; plumbing and fire protection systems; building control systems; completing design and documentation for construction. Post-design: construction to demolition (operation, maintenance, performance evaluation).
