INTRODUCTION

The only book on the market to guide engineers and building managers
through preparing a building service life plan for a green building
examines materials life cycle, reuse, and end-of-life disposal.

Preparing a Building Service Life Plan for Green Buildings uniquely adapts the traditional practice
of building service life planning (BSLP) to address the specific needs of green buildings, filling a
void in the market for this information.

The plan presented in the book describes not only repair and maintenance for promoting the
durability of major buildings elements, but also expectations for their removal, reuse, dismantling,
and disposal at the end-of-life. Life cycle performance and costs are addressed. This book provides
much-needed guidance for structural and environmental engineers, architects and contractors,
building managers, and maintenance personnel.

• Provides a template for creating a green building BSLP


• Describes product selection, maintenance, repair, and end-of-life removal and reuse
• Bonus downloadable software and content included

DESCRIPTION

Expert guidance on developing a green building service life plan

Filled with step-by-step instructions, Preparing a Building Service Life Plan for Green Buildings
explains how to create a framework for managing the performance requirements and life-cycle
impacts--including end-of-life--of major building elements for the duration of a green building’s
intended lifespan.

The book discusses operation and maintenance; inspections and assessments; repairs, upgrades,
and replacements; documentation; and removal, reuse, recycling, dismantling, and end-of-life
disposal of building components. A customizable template for creating a comprehensive green
BSLP is included in this practical resource.

Covers major building elements:

• Standard foundations
• Slab on grade
• Basement walls
• Floor construction
• Roof construction
• Exterior walls
• Exterior windows and doors
• Roof coverings
• Interior partitions and doors
• Fittings
• Stair construction
• Wall, floor, and ceiling finishes

wear in machinery components.

Fundamentals of Fluid Film Lubrication provides an introduction to the full subject of tribology and
the fundamentals of fluid film lubrication used broadly in bearings for rotating machinery, such as
power generating turbines, turbo-generators, pumps, and compressors.

All aspects of fluid film lubrication are discussed, including rotor-bearing dynamics, thermo-
hydrodynamic lubrication, gas lubrication, elastohydrodynamic lubrication, fluid inertia effects and
turbulence in fluid film lubrication, which are generally not discussed in texts available in this area.

• Coverage of both the analytical and numerical methods of solutions in bearing design and
lubrication
• Global examples from the authors' experience in the design and analysis of fluid film
industries
• Covers the viscosity and rheology of lubricants, mechanics of fluid films, hydrodynamic
lubrication dealing with idealized bearings, and finite bearings using both analytical and
numerical methods of solutions
