About This Item


Full Description

The Air-Conditioning System Design Manual was written to assist entry-level engineers in the design of air-conditioning systems. It is also usable - in conjunction with fundamental HVAC&R resource material - as a senior - or graduate-level text for a university course in HVAC system design. The manual was written to fill the void between theory and practice - to bridge the gap between real-world design practices and the theoretical knowledge acquired in the typical academic course or textbook. Courses and texts usually concentrate on theoretical calculations and analytical procedures or on the design of components. This manual focuses on applications.

This second edition represents an update and revision of the manual. The request behind the revision effort was simply to make a successful resource more current. The updating process involved a thorough edit of all text in the manual, the addition of SI units throughout, the updating of references, and the editing of many illustrations. New material dealing with the design process, indoor air quality, and green design was added.

Aside from the textual expansions, the second edition of the Air-Conditioning System Design Manual is a compact 6 x 9 in. book with a durable hardback cover.

The Air-Conditioning System Design Manual is the second book in The ASHRAE Professional Series, which was jointly developed by ASHRAE and Butterworth-Heinemann/Elsevier to provide high-quality professional information for a global audience of HVAC&R engineers as well as professionals in related fields.
