A practical introductory guide to the concepts and technologies essential to air conditioning design
Air Conditioning System Design summarizes essential theory and then explains how the latest air conditioning technology operates. Load calculations, energy efficiency, and selection of technology are all explained in the context of air conditioning as a system, helping the reader fully consider the implications of design decisions.
Whether users need to figure out how to apply their mechanical engineering degree to an air conditioning design task or simply want to find out more about air conditioning technology for a research project, this book provides a perfect guide.
Air conditioning is no longer regarded as the luxury that it once was, and there is now an increasing demand for applications ranging through domestic, commercial, industrial, and transport and for specialized installations such as hospitals, research facilities, data centres, and clean rooms. The engineering systems in modern buildings and installations make a significant contribution to the overall building performance in terms of energy use. Systems need to be increasingly sophisticated in their design, installation, operation, control, and maintenance at a time when there is increasing pressure for greater energy efficiency.
This has led to a demand for more qualified engineers and other professionals involved in building design. All those involved need to understand the underlying principles of the topics covered in this volume.
The book, which is a complete revision of Roger’s previous work published by Batsford in 1991, contains new chapters on unitary systems and chilled beams. It provides a good technical foundation of building service engineering and covers significant proportions of the syllabus requirements of academic courses in this discipline. The theoretical coverage is backed with relevant worked examples and the use of data from the latest editions of CIBSE and ASHRAE publications, which should make this text appeal to students and practising professionals in both Europe and North America.
The author is well qualified in this discipline having taught the subject for more than 30 years at the Institute of Environmental Engineering (formerly the National College for Heating, Ventilation, Refrigeration and Fan Engineering, South Bank University, London). In addition, he has used contributions from key specialists to support specific areas; these included Associate Prof. Risto Kosonen, Prof. Tim Dwyer, Mr. Terry Welch, Prof. Ron James, Prof. John Missenden, and Mr. Stan Marchant
