The air distribution in occupied spaces is a major issue of public
concern. It is widely recognized that the quality of air and the
nature of airflow can affect the health of occupants and the energy
consumed in buildings and transport vehicles. ROOMVENT is the
principal international conference in the field of air
distribution. It was first initiated in 1987 by SCANVAC, the
Scandinavian Federation of Heating, Ventilating and Sanitary
Engineering Associations in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and
Over the past 20 years, energy conservation imperatives, the use of computer based design aids, and major advances in intelligent management systems for buildings have transformed the design and operation of comfort systems for buildings. The "rules of thumb" used by designers in the1970s are no longer viable. Today, building systems engineers must have a strong analytical basis for design synthesis processes.
Recent research has attributed "sick buildings" to poor air quality caused by internally produced pollution and the contamination of supply air by the ventilation plant due to inferior maintenance. Inadequate air distribution to various zones of a building can exacerbate the problem and also contribute to thermal discomfort and sickness. This book provides the designers of HVAC systems with up-to-date information on the procedures used for calculating the required outdoor air flow rates for a building taking into consideration fortuitous air flows, occupancy and internally produced contamination. Reference is made to ventilation standards as well as to recent research developments in the field. The book is a useful source of information for engineers, architects, hygienists and building managers who are concerned with the ventilation of buildings and the provision of acceptable indoor air quality.;This book should be of interest to architects, building services design engineers and undergraduates on building services engineering courses.

With the growth in export markets for mechanical/electrical services and the expansion of international contracting, it has become more and more important that an agreed international vocabulary is settled for the many specialist terms and descriptions involved in the industry. Heating, ventilating and air conditioning are among the more complex specializations within the construction industry, making the need for an internationally agreed vocabulary even greater. "The International Dictionary of Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning" is the result of a collaborative effort by an international panel of professional engineers set up by REHVA. Each member of the panel has considerable experience in this specialist engineering field and is responsible for the terms in his own mother tongue, thus ensuring the accuracy and general acceptability of the terms and translations given. The dictionary comprises two major divisions. The main sequence of the book consists of some 4,000 terms given in English, in alphabetical order, with their translations. The remainder of the book consists of alphabetical indexes for the other eleven languages covered: French, German, Italian, Danish, Finn

'Lighting Engineering: Applied Calculations' describes the mathematical background to the calculation techniques used in lighting engineering and links them to the applications with which they are used. The fundamentals of flux and illuminance, colour, measurement and optical design are covered in detail. There are detailed discussions of specific applications, including interior lighting, road lighting, tunnel lighting, floodlighting and emergency lighting. The authors have used their years of experience to provide guidance for common mistakes and useful techniques including worked examples and case studies. The last decade has seen the universal application of personal computers to lighting engineering on a day-to-day basis. Many calculations that were previously impracticable are therefore now easily accessible to any engineer or designer who has access to an appropriate computer program. However, a grasp of the underlying calculation principles is still necessary in order to utilise these technologies to the full. Written by two of the leading authorities on this subject, 'Lighting Engineering' is essential reading for practising lighting engineers, designers and architects, and students in the field of lighting.

The use of solar collectors for domestic hot water over the past 20 years has demonstrated that solar heating systems are now founded on a reliable and mature technology. However, the development of similar, but more complex, systems to provide both domestic hot water and space heating (solar combisystems) resulted in a diverse range of different designs that were not carefully optimized to reflect local climate and practice. Application of energy-efficient building strategies such as improved thermal insulation and use of low temperature heat supply systems is becoming increasingly common. This trend, combined with growing environmental awareness and the subsidies available in certain countries, favours an increase in market share for solar combisystems. The need for guidelines in selecting the appropriate system and designing this system according to the specific needs of the building and the local environment is therefore now increasingly pressing. This book fills that need.
Over the past 20 years, energy conservation imperatives, the use of computer based design aids, and major advances in intelligent management systems for buildings have transformed the design and operation of comfort systems for buildings. The "rules of thumb" used by designers in the1970s are no longer viable. Today, building systems engineers must have a strong analytical basis for design synthesis processes. But how can you develop this basis? Do you have on your shelf a reference that describes all the latest methods? Does it cover everything from the fundamentals to state-of-the art, intelligent systems? Does it do so in practical way that you can easily access and use when you need to? The Handbook of Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning does. It combines practice and theory, systems and control, and the latest methods and technologies to provide, in one volume, all of the modern design and operation information needed by HVAC engineers. The Handbook of Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning will stay up-to-date while other resources become outmoded and go through lengthy revision and reprint processes. Through a link on the CRC Web site, owners of the Handbook can access new material periodically posted by the author.
