Acoustics in worship spaces and air-conditioning systems and components are featured in books recently published by two Durham School faculty in Architectural Engineering at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Associate Professor Erica Ryherd's book, her third to be published, is titled "Worship Space Acoustics: 3 Decades of Design," and details the acoustic and architectural information for 67 worship spaces. Projects covered include new constructions and renovations to aged structures and highlight some of the complications that may arise when treating historical buildings for noise and sound efficacy.

"Modeling and Control in Air-conditioning Systems", written by Assistant Professor Yuebin Yu, discusses modern components of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC & R) and building environments. Using nonlinear models based primarily on the principle of energy and mass conservation, Yu educates readers on the state-space method of development.
