Our expert MEP Roundtable panel discusses the major changes to the 2010 edition of ASHRAE 62.1 and how these modifications will alter mechanical system design, building performance, and energy codes compliance.
If there’s one thing that’s consistent about the engineering community, is that it’s inconsistent. I say that—not to confuse the situation—but to prove that it’s tough to be in the building engineering community these days.
Located in Austin, the Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas is the first healthcare facility in the world to achieve a LEED Platinum certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
The ACEEE survey lists Massachusetts as the most energy efficient. California, Minnesota, and New York are also included in the top 10. North Dakota, Wyoming, and Mississippi rate among the bottom states.
Enclosure design: Control, electronics, network, and data center enclosures require temperature control techniques for reliable performance. Isolating high-temperature components is an increasingly popular method.
Smaller components packed into enclosures generate the same amount of heat. Properly cooling the electronics, which have varying levels of temperature sensitivity, boosts system longevity and reliability, and reduces the risk for...
