The video teaser on “Chilled Beam Technology for Excellent Indoor Climate in Sustainable Buildings” from the CLIMA Conference 2016 is available for viewing!
This three hours short course on chilled beam technology offered at the CLIMA Conference 2016 gives an insight on the state-of-the art of chilled beam technology and design methods. It is intended for HVAC-Engineers, Facility Owners and Architects. The course level is intermediate; a basic knowledge of HVAC system design and air diffusion is required.
The presenters are Risto Kosonen, Professor at Aalto University, Department of Energy Technology; and Carlos Lisboa, HVAC Senior Consultant at BLC navitas, Lda, Portugal; and Julian Rimmer, Vice President at Design and Business Development at Price Industries, London, United Kingdom.
Recommended Reference is the REHVA Guidebook 21: Active and Passive Beam Application Design Guide. You can also find the guidebook in our Bookshop (link here).
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. It includes examples of active and passive beam calculations and selections. Dual units (SI and I-P) are provided throughout.
