By Vesna Žegarac Leskovar, Miroslav Premrov

The publication discusses combining bushes and glass, eco fabrics, in order to constructing an optimum modern energy-efficient residence with an enticing layout. in addition, the publication connects an architectural layout process with structural study to teach the probabilities of stabilizing the construction with an elevated dimension of the glazing.

Research effects the place the glazing is taken into account as a load-bearing structural aspect are for this reason awarded in a fashion resulting in the advance of an optimum version of the timber-glass condominium, contemplating either the structural and effort comparable features. The provided examine paintings might be invaluable to designers and destiny specialists of their making plans of optimum energy-efficient bushes structures.

The examine relies on utilizing trees and glass, that have been formerly ignored as development fabrics. With appropriate technological improvement and applicable use, they're these days turning into crucial development fabrics so far as strength potency is anxious. even though, their mixed use is very complex, from either the constructional standpoint in addition to from that of power potency and units a number of traps for designers. an outstanding wisdom in their benefits and disadvantages is therefore very important, that is proven within the current monograph.

Energy-efficient timber-glass homes was once chosen via the Slovenian nationwide learn business enterprise as a rare clinical success within the box of technical sciences/civil engineering for the 12 months 2013.

Transplantation Pathology: A Guide for Practicing Pathologists

Basic pathologists see many biopsies from transplanted organs yet few are in sufficiently big centres in order that this types the majority in their paintings. The booklet describes the alterations which might be saw in transplantation in the entire significant organ platforms which are regularly transplanted and there are bills of the pathology of infections and of the immunological problems which are confronted by way of those sufferers.

Coupling of Biological and Electronic Systems: Proceedings of the 2nd caesarium, Bonn, November 1–3, 2000

The coupling of organic and digital structures has long ago few years emerged as a box of accelerating significance. Achievements just like the cardiac pacemaker have lead the way for extra refined ways, corresponding to the lab-on-a-chip and DNA desktops. This e-book provides reports on one of the most promising initiatives during this interdisciplinary examine box, protecting themes from bioinformatics to biosensor expertise.

In the summer period, the roofs are more exposed to solar radiation than the walls, mainly due to their inclination angle and to the absence of shading elements in their surroundings. Therefore, proper roof insulation with a high phase shift is vitally important in prevention of overheating. Owing to smaller differences between the internal and ground temperatures, the phase shift is not as important for construction elements adjacent to the ground, such as a slab on grade, a basement slab and wall, whose thermal conductivity values need not exceed the average.

It is also an ideal construction material from the viewpoint of energy efficiency since CO2 emissions in production of a timber element tend to be approximately two times lower than that those present in manufacturing an equivalent brick element, three times lower than in the case of a concrete element and six times lower than CO2 emissions in steel element production. The reason lies in photosynthesis enabling a growing tree to store CO2 which is then released only in the burning process of the timber mass.
