Description

This course applies engineering principles and design methods related to heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) to the professional practice of building services design. The course covers process and technical aspects of HVAC systems design at the various phases of a building project; project initiation, concept and preliminary design, developed and detailed design, and commissioning. Learning includes design projects and case studies.

This course applies engineering principles and design methods related to heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) to the professional practice of building services design. The course covers process and technical aspects of HVAC systems design at the various phases of a building project; project initiation, concept and preliminary design, developed and detailed design, and commissioning. Learning includes design projects and case studies.

The course covers the following topics:

• Building codes and standards (NZ, ASHRAE, CBISE, CIC)
• Design objective: thermal comfort, indoor air quality, industrial applications (museum etc)
• Heat, Moisture, Air through buildings: Heat transmission and Infiltration
• Space heating and cooling load: Introduction to radiant time series method
• HVAC equipment: Space air conditioning, Psychometrics, AHU and Heat recovery
• Ventilation strategies and air distribution: mixing, displacement, natural ventilation and hybrid.
• Introduction to HVAC systems: CAV, VAV, radiant heating and cooling system, etc
• HVAC design: System and duct design

Learning Outcomes

  • Independently gathering, analysing and synthesising information required to develop HVAC solutions to complex building design problems.

  • Identifying, developing and evaluating potential HVAC systems that provide solutions to complex building design problems, considering regulatory requirements, relative feasibility, benefits, limitations and environmental impacts of different solutions.

  • Developing and communicating concept and preliminary designs of HVAC systems for complex buildings (~occupants and storage~), including sketches, schematics, and design features reports to document design development.

  • Selecting and sizing HVAC equipment and systems.

Prerequisites
