ASHRAE Publishes Update to Principles of HVAC

 
ASHRAE Publishes Update to Principles of HVAC

Doubling as a reference manual that allows engineers to build on their knowledge of HVAC design procedures and methods, ASHRAE’s newly published Principles of Heating, Ventilating and Air-Conditioning builds on much of the basic information in the 2009 ASHRAE Handbook-Fundamentals and contains the most current ASHRAE procedures and a definitive, easy-to-understand treatment of building HVAC systems, from basic principles through design and operation.

This new edition of the book contains several significant changes, including new values for climatic design information; new values of heating, wind, and cooling and dehumidifying design conditions; improved values of thermal conductivity and resistance for common building and insulating materials; and an extensively revised chapter on residential heating and cooling load calculations.

Additionally, the chapters on system design and equipment have been significantly revised to reflect recent changes and concepts in current heating and air-conditioning system practices.

The book may be used for/by undergraduate engineering courses in the general field of HVAC, similar courses at technical institutes, continuing education and refresher short courses for engineers, and adult education courses for non-engineers.

The Principles of HVAC Solutions Manual, which contains revised solutions to most of the problems in the Principles of Heating, Ventilating and Air-Conditioning book, is also available.
