HVAC Engineers Handbook

F. Porges

Preference :

This book contains in a readily available form the data, charts and tables which are regularly
required by heating, ventilating and air conditioning engineers in their daily work.
The data is presented in a concise manner to enable it to be applied directly in the actual
daffy work of the HVAC engineer. The book is designed for everyday use and a comprehensive
bibliography has been included for the benefit of those who wish to pursue the theoretical
side of any particular topic.
For this edition some errors have been corrected, the explanatory notes on the psychr~
metric chart have been improved and the chart in previous editions has been replaced, with
permission, by the well known CIBSE chart. Additional data has been included on design
temperatures and ventilation rates and information has been inserted on precautions against
legionellosis in both hot water systems and air conditioning plant. The data on duct thicknesses
and sizes has been revised to conform to current practice. A new section has been
included on natural ventilation and the information on types of refrigeration compressors
has been expanded. The data on refrigerants has been completely revised to list the new
non4~FC and non-HCFC refrigerants. Practising engineers will still meet old plant which contains
refrigerants which are now obsolete or obsolescent, and therefore the properties of the
more important of these are also given.
The policy of previous editions of giving tabulated data in both SI and Imperial units has
been continued although theoretical expressions are generally given only in SI units.
