Zukunftsfï¿1⁄2hige Gebï¿1⁄2udehï¿1⁄2llen werden der Interaktion von Auï¿1⁄2enwandkonstruktionen mit der Gebï¿1⁄2udetechnik gerecht. Dabei mï¿1⁄2ssen in einem integralen Planungsprozess die verschiedenen Anforderungen berï¿1⁄2cksichtigt werden, wie z. B. Behaglichkeit der Gebï¿1⁄2udenutzer, energetische Effizienzaspekte, ï¿1⁄2konomische Effizienzaspekte und wartungsarme Lebensdauer, Schutz der Konstruktion gegen klimatische Einwirkungen. Die Entwicklung hin zu Niedrigstenergiegebï¿1⁄2uden (nZEB - nearly zero-energy buildings) wirkt sich insbesondere auf den Entwurf der Gebï¿1⁄2udehï¿1⁄2llen aus. Ab 2021 sollen gemï¿1⁄2ï¿1⁄2 EU-Richtlinie ï¿1⁄2ber die Gesamtenergieeffzienz von Gebï¿1⁄2uden (EPBD) alle Neubauten als Niedrigstenergiegebï¿1⁄2ude gebaut werden. Gebï¿1⁄2ude, die von Behï¿1⁄2rden als Eigentï¿1⁄2mer gebaut werden, sollen bereits ab Anfang 2019 diesen Standard einhalten. Um diesen zu erreichen, mï¿1⁄2ssen die Gebï¿1⁄2ude vor allem gut gedï¿1⁄2mmt sein und erneuerbare Energiequellen nutzen. Messtechnische Untersuchungsmethoden und rechnerische Nachweisformate hinsichtlich Wï¿1⁄2rme- und Feuchte- und Schallschutz werden vorgestellt und erlï¿1⁄2utert. Eine besondere, neue Rolle kommt der Tageslichtnutzung zu. Das Kompendium der Dï¿1⁄2mmstoffe im Bauwesen sowie der aktualisierte Beitrag ï¿1⁄2ber die Berechnung von Wï¿1⁄2rmebrï¿1⁄2cken sind Planungsgrundlagen fï¿1⁄2r die tï¿1⁄2gliche Praxis. Auf aktuellem Stand sind auch in diesem Jahrgang die Materialtechnischen und Brandschutztechnischen Tabellen. Der neue Bauphysik-Kalender 2017 mit dem Schwerpunktthema Gebï¿1⁄2udehï¿1⁄2lle und Fassaden bietet eine solide Arbeitsgrundlage und ein verlï¿1⁄2ssliches aktuelles Nachschlagewerk fï¿1⁄2r die Planung in Neubau und Bestand. Der Bauphysik-Kalender ist ein Kompendium fï¿1⁄2r die richtige Umsetzung bauphysikalischer Schutzfunktionen mit Normenï¿1⁄2berblick und -kommentierung, Materialdaten, Berechnung und Nachweisfï¿1⁄2hrung sowie praxisgerechten konstruktiven Lï¿1⁄2sungen auf den Gebieten Wï¿1⁄2rme- und Feuchteschutz, Schallschutz sowie Brandschutz.

The exuberant, exhilarating photographs of dogs underwater that have become a sensation From the water's surface, it's a simple exercise: a dog's leap, a splash, and then a wet head surfacing with a ball, triumphant. But beneath the water is a chaotic ballet of bared teeth and bubbles, paddling paws, fur and ears billowing in the currents. From leaping Lab to diving Dachshund, the water is where a dog's distinct personality shines through; some lounge in the current, paddling slowly, but others arch their bodies to cut through the water with the focus and determination of a shark. In more than eighty portraits, award-winning pet photographer and animal rights activist Seth Casteel captures new sides of our old friends with vibrant underwater photography that makes it impossible to look away. Each image bubbles with exuberance and life, a striking reminder that even in the most loveable and domesticated dog, there are more primal forces at work. In Underwater Dogs, Seth Casteel gives playful and energetic testament to the rough-and-tumble joy that our dogs bring into our lives.

From New York Times bestselling author and “remarkable reading phenomenon” (Lancashire Post) Lucinda Riley, The Moon Sister transports you to the grandeur of the remote Scottish Highlands and the gypsy caves of Granada, just as Spain descends into civil war, interweaving the stories of two women searching for their destinies, at the risk of potentially losing their chance at love. Tiggy D’Aplièse spends her days experiencing the raw beauty of the Scottish Highlands doing a job she loves at a deer sanctuary. But when the sanctuary is forced to close, she is offered a job as a wildlife consultant on the vast and isolated estate of the elusive and troubled laird, Charlie Kinnaird. She has no idea that the move will not only irrevocably alter her future, but also bring her face-to-face with her past. At the estate, she meets Chilly, a gypsy who fled from Spain seventy years before. He tells her that not only does she possess a sixth sense passed down from her ancestors, but it was foretold long ago that he would be the one to send her back home… In 1912, in the poor gypsy community outside the city walls of Granada, Lucía Amaya-Albaycin is born. Destined to be the greatest flamenco dancer of her generation—and named La Candela, due to the inner flame that burns through her when she dances— Lucía is whisked away by her ambitious and talented guitarist father at the tender age of ten to dance in the flamenco bars of Barcelona. Her mother is devastated by the loss of her daughter and as civil war threatens in Spain, tragedy strikes the rest of her family. Now in Madrid, Lucía and her troupe of dancers are forced to flee for their lives, their journey taking them far across the water to South America and eventually, to North America and New York—Lucía’s long-held dream. But to pursue it, she must choose between her passion for her career and the man she adores. Featuring Lucinda Riley’s “addictive storytelling with a moving, emotional heart” (Dinah Jeffries), The Moon Sister follows these two women on their journey to discover their true futures—but at the risk of potentially losing the men they had hoped to build futures with.

There was never any question that Deirdre and Desmond Doyle would celebrate a gala twenty-fifth anniversary. Naturally, their daughter Anna, would plan their grand affair. Of all three Doyle children, Anna knew exactly what their mother wished—even as she lived her own secret life. Will Brendan, the rebellious son, even bother to return to London? Will Helen, the hapless would-be nun, embarrass them all? This is Deirdre’s day, a triumph for a woman obsessed with keeping up appearances, her silvery revenge after “marrying down” twenty-five years ago. She’s determined to show them all: the maid of honor, still unmarried, still gorgeous, now a successful London business woman…the best man, once Desmond’s close friend, now his boss…their reluctant priest, who harbors his own guilty secret. As family and friends gather, a lifetime of lies takes its toll. But what begins as a family charade brings with it the transforming power of love—and truth. From the Paperback edition.
