Consulting-Specifying Engineer's Top 5 most read articles online, for October 17-23, covered VRF systems, 40 under 40, energy code advancements, the 2016 MEP Giants, and preventing arc flash in mission critical facilities. Link to each article below.

1. Back to basics: VRF systems

Know the basics of variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems to determine if they are the right choice for your next HVAC project. 

2. 40 Under 40 program

Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine is dedicated to encouraging and recognizing the most talented young individuals in the engineering community supporting the building industry. We want to shape the future of young engineers, and will do so by recognizing and encouraging them through mentoring articles in the magazine, young engineer networking events, and the 40 Under 40 program.

3. Energy code advancements for power systems

Energy losses and occupant consumption of power system components in commercial buildings pale in comparison to that of lighting systems. However, every recently published version of energy codes has included an increase in requirements for power system components.

4. 2016 MEP Giants

The MEP Giants program lists the top 100 mechanical, electrical, plumbing (MEP), and fire protection engineering firms in the United States. The in-depth analysis of these firms appears in the August issue and reveals what's going on in the industry and how it has changed over the past few years.

5. Preventing arc flash in mission critical facilities

To address arc flash problems, we turn to codes and standards. NEC 240.87 is an important leap in arc flash safety for the electrical industry, along with NFPA 70E and IEEE 1584: IEEE Guide for Performing Arc Flash Hazard Calculations.

This list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on www.csemag.com, October 17-23, for articles published within the last two months.
