Heat And Mass Transfer Phenomena In Urban Buildings

BySamuel Hassid, Vassilios Geros

The scope of this chapter is to understand the main heat transfer processes that take place in buildings, as well as to become familiarized with the notions and the parameters that concern heat transfer procedures. Since these processes are quite complex and of various kinds, the purpose of this chapter is to make clear the differences between the various heat transfer phenomena that contribute to the thermal balance of buildings.
