Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The thermal performance of buildings involves a wide field relating to building envelops, thermal insulation, lighting, heating, ventilating, air conditioning, energy use, maintenance, energy saving, etc. Research works in this field contribute to improvements in the thermal performance of buildings, and they bring about new concepts in the design, construction, management, and control of facilities in buildings. Moreover, the research also provides guidance for updating and developing building techniques.

The main aim of this Special Issue is to explore the recent advances and developments in the thermal performance of buildings. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Building envelop;
  • Lighting;
  • Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning;
  • Energy use and energy saving;
  • Maintenance;
  • Building manage and control;
  • Indoor air quality.
