Principles of Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning with Worked Examples (Hardcover) (Nihal E.
about this item
This book presents the most current design procedures in heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), available in handbooks, like the ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers) Handbook-2013 Fundamentals, in a way that is easier for students to understand. Every effort is made to explain in detail the fundamental physical principles that form the basis of the various design procedures.A novel feature of the book is the inclusion of about 15 worked examples in each chapter, carefully chosen to highlight the diverse aspects of HVAC design. The solutions for the worked examples clarifies the physical principles behind the design method. In addition, there are problems at the end of each chapter for which numerical answers are provided. The book includes a series of MATLAB programs that may be used to solve realistic HVAC design problems, which in general, require extensive and repetitive calculations.
