This advanced text is intended for the building professions: the engineer, architect or technical specialist involved in the design, construction, operation, maintenance, repair, and renovation of buildings. The focus is on predicting and understanding the heat, air, and moisture response of the building enclosure, i.e., walls, windows, roofs, below-grade construction. The text moves from the fundamental physics to more practical applications for all climate regions, including worked example calculations of heat flow, vapor diffusion and air leakage condensation through building enclosures.

John F. Straube, Ph.D., M.A.Sc. (Eng), P.Eng., holds a joint appointment as Associate Professor in both the Department of Civil Engineering and the School of Architecture at the University of Waterloo where he teaches courses in structural design, material science, and building science to both disciplines. He has been deeply involved in the areas of building enclosure design, moisture physics, and whole building performance as a consultant, researcher, and educator. His research and practice have focused on the design of energy-efficient, healthy and durable buildings, and the development of new building systems and products. His work is supported by advanced computer simulation and full-scale, natural-exposure performance monitoring. For more information, go to http://www.johnstraube.com

Eric F.P. Burnett, Ph.D., M.A.Sc., D.I.C., B.A.Sc. (Eng), P.Eng., FACI, ESCSE, is a structural engineer with specialist competence in the broad areas of building science and technology, building performance, and structural concrete. He has extensive experience of the building industry, having been involved in the design and construction of buildings on three continents. He has worked with and consulted to a number of R and D agencies in the US, Canada and elsewhere. He holds the Bernard and Henrietta Hankin Chair in Residential Construction at Penn State and he was Director of the Pennsylvania Housing Research Center. For many years he taught at the University of Waterloo, where he initiated the Building Science program and the Building Engineering Group.
