Consulting-Specifying Engineer's Top 5 most read articles online, for October 31- November 6, covered evaluating condensation and condensate, designing high-efficiency hot-water systems, evaluating low-temperature water-heating options, the engineer shortage, and the recipe to become a principal engineer. Link to each article below.

1. Evaluating condensation and condensate

Learn methods to capture, control, dispose, and derive the condensation requirements within HVAC systems.

2. How to design high-efficiency hot-water systems for hospitals

Boilers for heating and domestic hot-water systems are used in many hospitals and health care facilities. This looks at the codes and standards that regulate boiler specification, plus energy efficiency and efficacy of hot-water heating systems.

3. Evaluating low-temperature water-heating options

To take advantage of HVAC energy savings, engineers must change their thinking on heating-water temperatures, as the trend drives toward greater sustainability.

4. The coming engineering shortage

The engineering industry must address the skills gap.

 

5. The recipe to becoming a principal engineer

Start developing your skill set early. The engineering industry must address the skills gap.
