Curtain Wall Systems: A Primer provides a comprehensive introduction to the use of curtain wall systems in building envelopes. Today's curtain wall systems go beyond the basic functions of providing natural lighting and protecting the building interior from the external environment. These systems now are expected to conserve energy and ensure occupant comfort by controlling heat flow and solar radiation. Moreover, curtain wall systems must be designed for acceptable performance under natural disasters and human-made hazards. The design, fabrication, construction, and maintenance of advanced and efficient curtain wall systems demand the involvement of professionals from several fields of engineering and building technology.

This Manual of Practice compiles a basic review of the many aspects of curtain wall systems that affect their design and performance. It highlights the materials used to manufacture curtain walls for low-rise to high-rise construction and describes different types of tests, mockups, and inspections. Methods of improving the energy performance, waterproofing, and wind loading of curtain walls are assessed. Specialised aspects of curtain wall design and analysis for extreme events, such as earthquake and bomb blast, are explored. Innovative facade design and new curtain wall and glazing systems are covered as well.

MOP 126 is written for architects, structural engineers, HVAC engineers, general contractors, building owners, and building operators who are new to curtain wall systems and want to learn more about this specialised and emerging field.

Prepared by the Committee on Curtain Wall Systems of the Architectural Engineering Institute of ASCE.

A TO Z MYSTERIES - THE SERIES Dink loves to read, Josh loves to explore and Ruth Rose always wants to know what happened, why it happened, who it happened to, and when and where it took place! In the meantime, these best of friends with their sense of adventure and curiosity always seem to find themselves involved in solving a mystery! This series of fast-paced, collectible mysteries are great fun for confident readers. THE EMPTY ENVELOPE E is for Envelope...Dink keeps getting envelopes in the mail addressed to "D. Duncan." But the letters inside all start with "Dear Doris" and don't make any sense! Josh and Ruth Rose think someone's playing a trick on Dink. But Dink is sure there's more to it than that, especially after Doris herself shows up and demands her letters!


Bacterial Cellular Metabolic Systems

RRP $782.99

The metabolic regulation of a cell system is of critical importance in systems biology, and a robust model of these mechanisms is essential in predicting the effects on the metabolism of both the culture environment and the knockout of specific genes. Bacterial cellular metabolic systems focuses on this highly topical subject in relation to culture environment and provides a detailed analysis from gene level to metabolic level regulation, as well as offering a discussion of the most recent modelling approaches. The book begins with an introduction to metabolic mechanisms and to the metabolic regulation of a cell, before moving on to discussing the action of global regulators in response to a specific culture environment. The second half of the book examines conventional flux balance analysis and its applications, 13C-metabolic flux analysis, and the effect of a specific gene knockout on the metabolism.

  • comprehensive account of metabolic regulation via global regulators in response to changes in the culture environment
  • basic formulation of 13C-metabolic flux analysis based on 13C-labelling experiments
  • systems biology approach for the modelling and computer simulation of the main metabolic pathways of a cell system
