Purpose and Scope:

ASME is happy to announce our newest journal!

The aim of ASME Journal of Engineering for Sustainable Buildings and Cities is to be the primary, high-quality resource for dissemination of research on integrated and sustainable building equipment and systems (ISBES) for individual buildings, as well as urban centers. The main topics of the journal are related to sustainable and resilient building energy systems including - but not limited to - innovative technologies to integrate various building components, accurate energy equipment and building energy modeling tools, efficient combined heat and power, cost-effective building-specific energy storage systems (i.e., passive and active technologies), and advanced optimized control strategies for operating mechanical energy systems in buildings. In addition, the journal will consider new equipment and systems that can enhance the resiliency of buildings associated to climate change and recurrent extreme events.

In particular, the journal will disseminate new developments of energy efficient heating and cooling systems that are able to adapt to large variations in weather conditions especially in urban areas.
