Introduction.- Material Hygrothermal Properties Test.- Hygrothermal Performance Assessment on Building Component and Enclosed Space.- Building Envelope Hygrothermal Performance Optimization in Hot and Humid Climate Region.- Conclusion.
This book offers a comprehensive overview of the use of bamboo in building industry. It systematically demonstrates bamboo’s utility in terms of its properties, describing the material properties of typical industrial bamboo products, and discussing their performance evaluation and optimization as building components and in the creation of building envelopes. The book also includes examples of the high-value utilization of bamboo forest resources. Further, it examines how building performance may be affected by conditions such as climate. Including insights from material science, construction design, building physics and building climatology, the book also provides data obtained from technology and market status investigation, laboratory test and the computer simulation.
This book appeals to scientists and professionals, as it introduces and tests various bamboo products, demonstrating the advantages and disadvantages for each one. The book is also a valuable resource for civil engineers and students interested in this unique plant material and its application in the building industry.
Zujian Huang is a joint Ph.D. student of Architecture at South China University of Technology (SCUT) in China and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Germany. He has participated in several research projects on building materials, building energy efficiency and urban design, and has practical experience in building design and conservation, which includes several bamboo projects carried out together with Markus Heinsdorff. Since 2014, he has spent years investigating the bamboo market, as well as carrying out bamboo material property tests and bamboo building envelope performance simulations, and finally finished his dissertation. After graduation in June 2018, he continues the Postdoctoral research on the subject of green building materials and building envelopes at SCUT.
