Book Description:
Principles of Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning is a textbook based on the 2017 ASHRAE Handbook--Fundamentals. It contains the most current ASHRAE procedures and definitive, yet easy to understand, treatment of building HVAC systems, from basic principles through design and operation.

It is suitable both as a textbook and as a reference book for undergraduate engineering courses in the field of air conditioning, heating, and ventilation; for similar courses at technical and vocational schools; for continuing education and refresher short courses for engineers; and for adult education courses for professionals other than engineers, especially when combined with ASHRAE Handbook--Fundamentals.

The material is divided into three major sections: general concepts, Chapters 1–10; air-conditioning systems, Chapters 11–16; and HVAC&R equipment, Chapters 17–20. There are several significant changes in this revised edition. Chapter 4 has new values for climatic design information. Chapter 7 has been extensively revised with new design data. In addition, the chapters on system design and equipment have been significantly revised to reflect recent changes and concepts in modern heating and air-conditioning system practices.

Operations in food refrigeration

(s): Rodolfo H. Mascheroni (editor)
Publisher: CRC Press
Year: 2012
No of Pages: 388 Pages
Edition: 1st edition
Size: 17.7 MB
File Format: PDF
Book Description:

The final quality of a food product is impacted heavily by preservation technologies, such as chilling, freezing, and freeze-drying, as well as the numerous pretreatments that are routinely applied to foods. Adequate design and implementation of each of these treatments are critical to ensuring the integrity of the final food product, the productivity of the equipment, and reduced operating costs. Operations in Food Refrigeration explores the fundamental issues involved in heat and mass transfer in food refrigeration and examines aspects of other operations applied to chilled or frozen foods.

Following an overview of basic concepts and general calculation procedures involved in cooling, freezing, thawing, and freeze-drying, the book discusses:

  • Sizing, peeling, cutting, sorting, and blanching fruits and vegetables
  • Pretreatments for meats, including tenderization, electrical stimulation, portioning, curing, and smoking
  • Pretreatments for fish and other seafood
  • Processing of poultry
  • Air and osmotic partial dehydration, infusion of special nutrients, and the concentration of juices
  • Traditional chilling and freezing methods
  • Special precooling and freezing techniques
  • The effects of thawing on food, factors that influence the choice and design of thawing processes, and various thawing methods
  • The freeze-drying equipment
Each chapter is written by a recognized specialist and can serve as a stand-alone resource for the particular topic. Several chapters present case studies that can be used for developing processes or in teaching applications. Professors, researchers, and educators in the food industry will find this volume to be an invaluable reference for a host of food operations.

Handbook of Domestic Ventilation, Rodger Edwards

(s): Rodger Edwards
Publisher: Routledge
Year: 2005
No of Pages: 270 Pages
Edition: 1st edition
Size: 1.2 MB
File Format: PDF
Book Description:

A series of studies of homes in England show that around 15% - or some 3 million homes - suffer problems with damp and mold, largely because of poor ventilation. The impact on public health and quality of life is substantial.

The Handbook of Domestic Ventilation is a comprehensive study of the basic science, technology and practical application of effective and energy efficient ventilation strategies for dwellings. Unlike other books, the Handbook concentrates on a domestic context rather than looking solely at commercial applications, giving a much-needed insight into the requirements of ventilation for the home.

Basing his conclusions on both theoretical study and practical experience, Rodger Edwards demonstrates the clear link between poor ventilation and poor health, and tells the reader how to use good quality ventilation as a way of enhancing the quality of life and as a health improvement tool.
