Basic Comfort Heating Principles.
Dempster, Chalmer T.
The material in this beginning book for vocational students presents fundamental principles needed to understand the heating aspect of the sheet metal trade and supplies practical experience to the student so that he may become familiar with the process of determining heat loss for average structures. Six areas covered are: (1) Background information on comfort air-conditioning, (2) basic fundamentals of comfort heating, (3) air motion in ducts, (4) load calculation in comfort heating, (5) measurement of heat transmission, and (6) student calculations for heat loss determination. Each area includes two to five units, each with sub-topics which discuss temperature-related subjects and provide diagrams and/or instructional tables, and review questions. Appendixes include information on how to calculate heat transmission factors, how to determine infiltration heat losses by the crackage method, heat transmission factors tables for walls, ceilings and floors, and worksheets for student calculations.
