Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning
The course will develop and apply the general methods used in HVAC calculations, including heating, air conditioning and refrigeration. The basic HVAC equipment and processes include piping, fittings, valves, pumps, fans, heat exchangers, mass exchangers, heat pumps, process variables monitoring and control, multi-node flow and energy networks, and these will be examined and modeled. This will involve the theory and results from thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, heat transfer and mass transfer (and transport phenomena and boundary layer theory), process control, and computer simulation. In addition to the general HVAC calculations, more advanced analysis methods will be developed.
