Ice-Houses: Energy, Architecture, and Sustainability (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Ice-Houses: Energy, Architecture and Sustainability presents a novel technology and approach associated with daily and seasonal ice storage, passive cooling and natural technologies by different methods including heat pumps, in order to reduce electricity consumption.

Introducing a new green and sustainable technology for decreasing electrical energy consumed for HVAC purposes, particularly at peak times, by using a natural and/or low-energy ice production and storage system, this book covers different aspects of ice-houses and cold energy production, storage and utilization. Addressing various issues connected to the technology and structure of traditional ice-houses, natural and artificial ice making, daily and seasonal ice storage by heat pumps and ice-houses, this refences looks at a new technological approach for the reduction of electrical energy consumption in buildings.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of ice house storage along with worked examples and global case studies, essential for researchers and engineers looking to advance their understanding of this method of thermal storage.

Alireza Dehghani-Sanij holds a PhD from Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada, and his discipline is Mechanical Engineering specializing in Thermo-Fluids. He received his bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering focusing on Fluid Mechanics and his master's degree in Mechanical Engineering specializing in Energy Conversion. Currently, he is working with Prof. Maurice B. Dusseault as a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Waterloo in various fields of energy such as energy sources, storage and conversion, geothermal energy, and passive cooling systems (e.g., modern wind tower designs). Alireza has eight years academic experience as a lecturer for different courses (e.g., Heat Transfer, Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, Geothermal Energy) at several universities in Canada and Iran. He has published more than 30 papers in scientific journals, some in top-ranked international journals such as Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, Renewable Energy, Energy Conversion and Management, etc., and presented over 30 papers at conferences. Mehdi N. Bahadori is a Professor (Emeritus) of Mechanical Engineering at Sharif University of Technology in Iran. He completed his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Illinois, USA in 1964. Mehdi has published and presented more than 200 papers in scientific journals and at a number of conferences, in English and Farsi. In addition, he has published several books in both languages in collaboration with other investigators in different fields, such as energy, passive cooling systems, and ethics in engineering. He is a member of various scientific and professional organizations, such as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the Iranian Society of Mechanical Engineers (ISME), and the Iranian Solar Energy Society.
