HVAC Design Sourcebook PDF


HVAC Design Sourcebook 2020

Are you looking for a practical handbook to help you design heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems for commercial buildings? The HVAC Design Sourcebook is the resource you need to quickly establish yourself as a valuable member of your design team. The typical approach to training junior employees in the process of designing HVAC systems is to have them attempt to learn the skills required to work as effective members of a design team from the senior HVAC engineers with whom they are working. Unfortunately, the knowledge that the senior engineers are expected to impart has taken them years to develop, and without a practical training resource, teaching junior HVAC system designers the fundamentals of HVAC system design becomes time consuming.

The HVAC Design Sourcebook fills an industry void by providing a practical resource to aid in the process of training junior HVAC system designers in the fundamentals of HVAC system design. Essential design concepts are thoroughly explained and illustrated with photographs of actual HVAC system installations and graphical conventions used in construction drawing preparation. Codes and standards are frequently cited to emphasise the importance of HVAC systems being designed in accordance with regulating authorities' requirements. Other topics such as the overall design process, HVAC systems and equipment, piping and ductwork distribution systems, noise and vibration control, and automatic temperature controls are presented in a way that the junior HVAC system designer can understand and apply.

Throughout the book, the ultimate goal of preparing complete, well-coordinated HVAC system construction drawings is kept in mind. Variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems, strategies for controlling indoor air relative humidity, essential sustainable design practises, central plant optimization, construction administration, and the commissioning process are all new in this second edition of the HVAC Design Sourcebook. Finally, the HVAC Design Sourcebook concepts are applied to an example HVAC system design project. The HVAC Design Sourcebook is a must-have resource for anyone considering or pursuing a career in HVAC system design.
