Principles of Tropical Air Conditioning is written with the humid tropics in mind. It is intended to meet the syllabus of the Higher National Diploma (HND) or equivalent professional examinations in Building Services Engineering. It is also designed to cover the air conditioning course content of the new Bachelor of Engineering (B. Eng) degree approved by the National Universities Commission. It is specifically focused in providing design data for tropical air conditioning system design and provides illustrative examples that can give young practitioners enough information to evaluate air conditioning and refrigeration cooling loads and equipment selection with minimum supervision. In addition, Principles of Tropical Air Conditioning serves as quick reference source containing useful design data and parameters often required by the practicing engineer.

Awe-struck appreciation of light's ability to define colour, texture and form, and its capacity to shape emotional response can be found in the great art, and literature, of even the earliest civilizations. From shooting stars, volcanoes and lighting to fireworks, wax candles and gas lamps - the central role of light in visual perception can be traced through the culture of centuries.

Many global environmental issues are being vigorously discussed these days, particularly the topic of reducing CO2, which is caused by the consumption of fossil fuels. Given the trends in contemporary power consumption in Japan, which have a lot to do with the emission of CO2, you will notice a less well known fact: that approximately 30% of power consumed is due to the demand for cooling (air-conditioning). Thus, air-conditioning engineers are now required to carry out an important task in the prevention of global warming by further promoting energy savings in air-conditioning technology. This book describes thermal storage technologies, which is one of the important energy saving approaches involved in air-conditioning, and outlines every aspect of thermal storage beginning with the current global environment, the history of thermal storage systems and principles of heat pumps, up to concepts and design methods of water and ice thermal storage systems. One of the benefits of this book is its easy-to-understand descriptions featuring diverse illustrations and charts and, so to speak, its thematic self-contained chapters. The book will be a helpful guide for people wanting to learn more about thermal storage technology, which is often considered to be "difficult to understand" or "too complex" despite its long history. This book was written mainly for junior building equipment engineers and equipment engineering students.

This publication of passive solar projects built in the United States has been prepared to document the state of the art in passive solar design. Passive solar heating and cooling can provide a major percentage of the buildings' energy requirement, while at the same time representing a heightened level of involvement for the architect in the design stages of the building. The full potential of this passive conditioning depends on a sensitive awareness of the relationship between climate, comfort, and the thermal characteristics of buildings and building materials. Passive solar systems are often misunderstood and vaguely defined. Many of the approaches to passive solar heating and cooling are at rudimentary stages, with little performance data and evaluation, few modeling techniques, and minimal published information. Yet for the building designer and the occupant, these concepts have major implications in the design and use of buildings. The purpose of this publication is to offer a working definition and a basic understanding of a number of existing applications of passive solar designs. Methods of passive solar design are not presented in this publication; nor are rules of thumb or passive solar assemblies and components. These subjects will be addressed in later publications. A reference bibliography has been included to assist the reader who desires more information and to stimulate additional individual research and testing. Passive design techniques can be integrated in an additive fashion in more typical buildings -but this challenge for now, is left to the reader.
This guide has been written by experts in the field to provide you, a consumer, with information about the use of solar energy to heat the water you use in your home. It is no secret that energy costs have been rising rapidly in the past several years, and that conventional sources of energy are in short supply. As more and more people feel the impact of the rising cost and limited availability of some types of energy, increasing attention is being given to the energy available in sunlight. No longer just a fad for some individual experimenters, no longer only a subject for scientific and engineering studies, solar energy applications are now a matter of intense interest to almost everyone. Of all of the ways in which we can capture and use solar energy to meet our needs, providing hot water is perhaps the simplest and most economical for the homeowner. Many manufacturers now make equipment and systems to provide solar-heated water, and many firms around the country are qualified to install, maintain, and service them. The Federal government and several states even provide tax credits to help cover the cost of solar energy systems. But deciding to buy and install a solar hot water system still requires you to consider a number of factors---whether the system will save you money now or in the future, what kind of system to buy and from whom to buy it, whether to install it yourself or have it installed, and similar matters. This guide is designed to provide some of the information you will need to make these decisions, and to tell you where to get the rest of the information you may need to install or have installed a satisfactory solar hot water system.
This publication is about solar energy and how its use for heating and cooling will affect dwelling design and site planning. It has been prepared as a brief introduction for consumers, designers, and builders interested in solar heating and cooling. Beginning with a brief history of solar energy applications, a more thorough description of solar components and how they are organized into heating, cooling and domestic hot water systems follows. Next, factors which influence the design of solar dwellings and systems are discussed. The remain portion of the publication illustrates dwelling and site design concepts responsive to these factors for various housing types, solar systems, and climates.
Originally published in 1915, this book holds much relevance today as district heating is again being considered in many areas. Topics covered include origin and development of district heating, selling of heat, heat distribution systems, metering, district-heating stations, methods of estimating heating requirements in buildings, estimating miscellaneous steam requirements in buildings, relation between heat load and electric load in buildings, the use of heating data in making estimates on the comparative costs of isolated plant and central-station service, and the relation between central-station heating and central-station lighting and power. "The object of the book is not only to impart a general knowledge of District Heating to those who wish to study the subject, but also to promote the interests of District Heating companies. For this purpose various points on economical operation are suggested, as illustrated in the methods practiced by companies which have made a success in this line of work." - The Authors

This work seeks to introduce the reader to the principles of managing and conserving energy consumption in a variety of buildings occupied by people going about their daily work or leisure. It considers energy consumption in the provision of space heating, hot water supply ventilation and air conditioning and it discusses the use and application of Degree Days and the determination of heat gains within the building. The volume introduces the use of performance indicators, consumption yardsticks and carbon dioxide emission yardsticks. Following an introduction to the preparation of the energy audit, monitoring and targeting techniques are investigated and analyzed. The reader is not expected to have prior knowledge of the design of building services. Each chapter of the book is set out with the nomenclature used, an introduction, worked examples and case studies and data and text appropriate to the topic; it concludes with a chapter closure which identifies the skills and competences acquired.
This volume examines the current major issues in research design for arts teachers. It aims to answer two key questions: how do researchers design their studies? What research methods are appropriate for specific investigative questions?
