Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning Analysis and Design

Preference :

The text is intended for undergraduate and graduate engineering students who
have completed basic courses in thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, and
dynamics. It contains sufficient material for two-semester courses with latitude in
course make-up. Although primarily directed toward classroom teaching, it should
also be useful for continuing education and as a reference.
Two physical changes have been made for this edition. First, the charts that were
previously contained in a pocket inside the back cover are now fold-out perforated
pages in Appendix E. Second, the computer programs and examples previously furnished
on a CD-ROM with the text are now available on the Wiley website
(www.wiley.com/college/mcquiston) by using the registration code included with new
copies of this text. If you purchased a copy of the text that does not contain a registration
code, or if you wish to acquire the software independently of the text, you may
purchase access directly from the website.
The load calculation computer program available on the website has been
enhanced and a number of examples have been placed there to broaden coverage in a
number of chapters.
The cooling load calculation procedures of Chapter 8 have been reorganized to
facilitate different approaches to covering the material. At least three approaches
might be used: first, the heat balance method may be covered only as brief background
material, with emphasis then placed on how to use the HVAC Load Explorer program;
second, the heat balance method may be taught rigorously, although this might be
more feasible for a graduate class; third, the radiant time series method (RTSM) may
be taught independently of the heat balance method. In the last case, a spreadsheet is
now provided at the web site that implements the RTSM and should speed utilization
of the method.
Many other revisions have been made to clarify examples and discussion. Various
material has been updated from the latest ASHRAE Handbooks where needed.
It appears that a complete conversion from English (IP) to the international (SI)
system of units will not soon, if ever, occur in the United States. However, engineers
should be comfortable with both systems of units when they enter practice. Therefore,
this text continues to use them both, with emphasis placed on the English system.
Instructors may blend the two systems as they choose.
