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.
