This book will emphasize the study of various components and systems of a building and their effect on energy consumption, with the help of an energy simulation tool. Numerous examples and exercises will provide hands-on experience with the simulation tools and help in understanding the performance of various building systems. The book will explain simulation input parameters, along with how to do analysis of the simulation output. With minimal use of mathematical equations, the basics of building physics and energy simulation will be explained using words, illustrative examples, charts, tables, and figures.
Mark Brandon Read, known to his friends and enemies alike as "Chopper", has spent more than 17 years in prison and has a reputation for violence earned in a blood-spattered career as a streetfighter, standover man, gunman and underworld executioner. He has been shot, stabbed, hit with a claw hammer and nearly kicked to death. In "Chopper 3", Read reveals more stories from the underworld, bringing his humour and sharp eye to bear on prison life, brutality, corruption and the warped code of the values of the criminal fraternity.
