ASHRAE and REHVA´s jointly published new Active and Passive Beam Application Design Guide is available in our Bookstore for the price of €40 plus postage (link to the Bookstore).
The Active and Passive Beam Application Design Guide is the result of collaboration be worldwide experts to give system designers a current, authoritative guide on successfully applying active and passive beam technology. Active and Passive Beam Application Design Guide provide energy-efficient methods of cooling, heating, and ventilating indoor areas, especially spaces that require individual zone control and where internal moisture loads are moderate. The systems are simple to operate, with low maintenance requirements. The book is an essential resource for consulting engineers, architects, owners, and contractors who are involved in the design, operation, and installations of these systems. Building on REHVA´s Chilled Beam Application Guidebook, this new guide provides up-to-date tools and advice for designing, commissioning, and operating chilled-beam systems to achieve a determined indoor climate, and includes examples of active and passive beam calculations and selections. Dual units (SI and I-P) are provided throughout.
Contents: Preface and Acknowledgments, Terms and Definitions, Symbols and Units, Abbreviations, Introduction, Comfort, Passive Beams, Active Beams, Primary Airflow Calculation Methodology, Controls, Installation and Commissioning, System Operation, Energy and Total Cost of Ownership, References and Bibliography, Appendix A: Examples for SI Applications, Appendix B: Examples for I-P Applications.
