Journal of Facade Design and Engineering (JFDE)
The Journal of Facade Design and Engineering presents new research results and new proven practice in the field of facade design and engineering. The goal is to improve building technologies, as well as process management and architectural design.
This journal is a valuable resource for professionals and academics involved in the design and engineering of building envelopes, including the following disciplines:
The journal will be directed at the scientific community, but it will also feature papers that focus on the dissemination of science into practice and industrial innovations. In this way, readers explore the interaction between scientific developments, technical considerations and management issues.
