Om boka

Ice-Houses: Energy, Architecture and Sustainability presents new and novel technologies and approaches surrounding daily and seasonal ice storage, along with discussions on passive cooling and natural technologies using different methods, including heat pumps. The book covers different aspects of ice-houses and cold energy production, storage and utilization. By addressing various issues connected to the technology and structure of traditional ice-houses and natural and artificial ice making, this refences looks at new technological approaches for the reduction of electrical energy consumption in buildings.

Users will find this to be a comprehensive overview of ice house storage that includes worked examples and global case studies. It is an essential resource for researchers and engineers looking to advance their understanding of this method of thermal storage.

Dr. Alireza Dehghani-Sanij is currently a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Waterloo, Canada. He studies energy issues such as energy sources, storage and conversion; stand-alone and hybrid renewable energy systems, specifically in geothermal contexts; and passive cooling systems. In a decade's academic and industrial experience, he has published over 30 papers in scientific journals and presented over 30 papers at conferences. He has also collaborated with other researchers to publish several books in both English and Farsi. Dr. Mehdi N. Bahadori is a Professor (Emeritus) of Mechanical Engineering at Sharif University of Technology, Iran. He has published and presented over 200 papers in scientific journals and at conferences, in both English and Farsi. He has also collaborated on some books in both languages, on energy, passive cooling systems, and engineering ethics. Among his scientific and professional memberships are ones in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the Iranian Society of Mechanical Engineers (ISME), and the Iranian Solar Energy Society.
