Methodical architectural design for ideal wind energy production

Book Announcement

Bentham Science Publishers

Systematic Architectural Design for Optimal Wind Energy Generation is an essential reference for students of architecture at all levels, professional architects, as well as readers interested in green building design, renewable energy, and sustainability studies that pave the way towards proactive environment-friendly solutions.

An objective focus of the Book is on architectural forms are presented, including the role of the form in optimizing wind energy conversion and the negative effects of wind on certain forms.

It is a convenient orientation on the aerodynamic architectural forms in buildings for optimizing wind energy conversion processes. Chapters of the book cover the basics of wind energy generation and building design that make them more conducive for generating wind power, and in line with sustainable energy design goals
