PEAK HEATING/COOLING LOAD DESIGN METHODS: HOW WE GOT TO WHERE WE ARE TODAY IN THE US Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • This paper presents an historical discussion of HVAC design calculation methods from the 1800s until the present, including methods that were used to size heating systems and cooling system. The discussion focuses primarily 011 U.S. analysis methods, although, as far as could be determined, most of the early peak heating/cooling engineering-based methods in the U.S. can be traced, either directly or indirectly to those published by Professor Hermann Rietschel (1893 - present). Professor of the Technical University of Berlin. Charlottenburg, the works of Thomas Tredgold (1836). or Eugene Peclet (1850). Copyright © 2011 by IPAC'11/EPS-AG.
