Building Physics - Heat, Air and Moisture: Fundamentals and Engineering Methods with Examples and Exercises. Hugo S. L. C. Hens. Editor Ernst & Sohn. ISBN 978-3433030271
Building physics combines several knowledge domains such as heat and mass transfer, building acoustics, lighting, indoor environmental quality and energy efficiency. In some countries, also fire safety is included. Through the application of existing physical knowledge and the combination with information coming from other disciplines, the field helps to understand the physical phenomena governing assembly, building envelope, whole building and built environment performance, although for the last the wording "urban physics" is used. Building physics has a true impact on performance based building design.
