The Architect's Guide to Mechanical Systems.
Andrews, F. T.
The principles and problems of designing new building mechanical systems are discussed in this reference source in the light of data on the functions and operation of mechanical systems. As a practical guide to understanding mechanical systems it describes system types, functions, space requirements, weights, installation, maintenance and operating costs. Mechanical information on heating-cooling, air conditioning, ventilation-exhausting, and plumbing systems for buildings is revealed with emphasis on fire protection, "trouble shooting", and the selection of a mechanical engineer. Specifications, charts, drawings, and reference sources are included. (TG)
