Key Knowledge for Successful Hydronic System Design

Water, or hydronic, systems are a key foundation technology of HVAC system design. They represent an important tool in the designer's toolbox for providing effective and efficient HVAC systems to buildings around the world. Fundamentals of Water System Design, Second Edition, is an entry-level text on the principles of hydronic HVAC system design and calculations. The fundamentals presented in this text can be used to successfully design the modern hydronic system, and they provide an equally sound footing for work in hydronic system commissioning, operation, and troubleshooting.
This course book's nine chapters provide detailed information on the following topics:


  • Components of closed and open hydronic systems
  • Pipe materials and fittings
  • Piping system design
  • Pumps and their operation
  • Matching pumps to systems
  • Control of terminal units
  • Optimizing water-chiller operation

Each chapter includes detailed diagrams, examples, and calculations, plus exercises at the end of each chapter to develop skills in using the knowledge provided. This book is part of the ASHRAE Learning Institute (ALI) Fundamentals of HVAC&R Series of self-directed or group learning courses.

ASHRAE Design Guide for Tall, Supertall, and Megatall Building Systems

(s): ASHRAE
Publisher: American Society of Heating Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers
Year: 2015
No of Pages: 235 Pages
Size: 9.2 MB
File Format: PDF

Book Description:
Tall buildings present unique and formidable challenges to architects and engineers because of their size, location in major urban areas, and the multiple, complex occupancies they often contain.  ASHRAE Design Guide for Tall, Supertall, and Megatall Building Systems is a unique reference for owners; architects; and mechanical, structural, and electrical engineers as well as other specialized consultants involved in designing systems for these buildings.

Expanded since ASHRAE's previous guide on the topic in 2004, this new design guide covers not only tall buildings (taller than 300 ft [91m]) but now also addresses supertall (taller than 984 ft [300 m]) and megatall (taller than 1968 ft [600 m]) buildings, with a broadened scope and updated content that reflects current standards and industry practices.

This guide not only focuses on the efforts of designers of the HVAC systems but also addresses the importance of the design team and their collective efforts and concerns that are the critical elements in determining the ultimate solutions to the project needs of a tall building. Special attention is also given to design issues for tall commercial buildings, which are very often mixed use, with low-level retail, office floors, residential floors, and hotel floors.

Major sections cover the following subjects:
• Architectural design
• Facade systems
• Climate data
• Indoor air quality (IAQ) and thermal comfort
• HVAC systems
• Electrical system interfaces
• Intelligent buildings and controls
• Water distribution
• Plumbing systems
• Energy modeling and authentication
• Vertical transportation
• Life safety
• Needs of residential occupancies.

Also included are appendices with examples of stack effect and wind pressure for four representative climates, energy analysis examples, and HVAC design criteria and a systems description for a multiple-tenant office building.

Sustainable Retail Refrigeration

Publisher: Wiley-Blackwell
Year: 2015
No of Pages: 372 Pages
Edition: 1st edition

File Format: PDF
Book Description:
Carbon emissions from the retail segment of the food cold chain are relatively high compared to other parts of the food cold chain. Studies have also shown that food temperature is less well controlled at the retail and consumer end of the cold chain. There is, therefore, the considerable potential to optimize the performance of refrigerated display cabinets and the refrigeration systems that are used to operate them to reduce carbon emissions and to improve food temperature control.

Sustainable Retail Refrigeration draws together world experts on retail refrigeration. In a single resource, the authors cover the latest technologies and best current knowledge in the field. With increasing concerns about energy use and global warming gasses, retailers are increasingly being called to account for their actions.

Sustainable Retail Refrigeration is a valuable reference to manufacturers, managers and policy makers, incorporating both a design and an operational perspective.
