An Integrated Energy Simulation Model for Buildings (March 2020)

Nikolaos Kampelis, Georgios I. Papayiannis, Dionysia Kolokotsa, Georgios N. Galanis, Daniela Isidori, Cristina Cristalli and Athanasios N. Yannacopoulos The operation of buildings is linked to approximately 36% of the global energy consumption, 40% of greenhouse gas emissions, and climate change. Assessing the energy consumption and efficiency of buildings is a complex task addressed by a […]

Extreme weather and climate events and public health responses. WHO 2004.

Report on a World Health Organization meeting Bratislava, Slovakia 09–10 February 2004 Heat-waves were associated with an increase in all causes of death, not just heat stroke. In France, an excess of mortality was observed for all causes of deaths. The highest increases were observed for causes directly linked to the heat-wave, such as Hyperthermia […]

Heat wave in the cities of the Balkan Peninsula

The cities of the Balkan Peninsula, in recent years, face unexpected high temperature events during the summer months, due to high solar radiation. Weather changes over the last decade are expected to intensify and their effects will be visible in terms of energy as well as public health issues. According to recent data, Athens, Sofia, […]

Personal protective equipment (PPE)

Prevention is better than cure. It is wise someone to be prepared to take precautions towards a possible danger instead of dealing with its effects. According to the EU Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthy workplace for their employees. It is a fact that dangerous substances […]

Syntactic foams and Glass Bubbles

Syntactic foams are complex compounds produced by the incorporation of hollow spherical particles into a polymeric or ceramic matrix. The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) states that synthetic foams have a resin matrix. The properties of synthetic foam can be largely determined by changing some parameters during their production such as the material […]
