Call for Papers
This special issue aims to provide an opportunity for partnerships among engineers, architects, material scientists, mathematicians, computer scientists, and social scientists to contribute to the knowledge and innovations in building materials, models, theories, and systems and to accelerate the advancement of science in energy and environmental design for buildings for the next generation of advanced sustainable building systems.
Recent advances in material sciences, information technologies, computational tools and intelligent systems have provided new incentives and opportunities to make fundamental advances in the design, construction, and operation of residential and commercial buildings for future generations. These advances along with the rapid advances in nanotechnology could open up new paths for designing novel materials with the desired physical and chemical properties, and lead to the development of sustainable buildings that will address a number of our needs such as reducing the consumption of natural resources, reducing the amount of fossil fuels needed to operate our buildings, and reducing the public health risks associated with poor indoor air quality. This special issue will provide the opportunity to bring together engineers, material scientists, mathematicians, computer scientists and others with interests overlapping with those areas mentioned above to collaborate in the topics of designing, constructing, operating, maintaining, and retiring buildings that will minimize fossil fuel consumption and adverse environmental effects.
This issue will publish reviews and research articles. It is supported by the American Journal of Engineering and Applied Sciences (AJEAS). American Journal of Engineering and Applied Sciences is an international journal publishes four times a year in print and electronic form.
