Consulting-Specifying Engineer's top 5 most read articles online, for February 20-26, covered HVAC system design, unitary pumping solutions, ASHRAE 90.1 success, MEP/FP design for MRI suites, and NFPA 101 for mission critical facilities. Link to each article below.

1. Know efficiency standards for HVAC system design

Education and diligent analysis will help engineers navigate new U.S. Department of Energy pump-efficiency rules.

2. Optimizing unitary pumping solutions

Unitary pumping solutions integrate variable speed drives (VSDs) to allow for pumps to self-optimize.

3. Five steps to success with ASHRAE 90.1

ASHRAE Standard 90.1: Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings is one of the main drivers used in any building design. Read the top five best practices for engineers to understand the key elements of this standard.

4. MEP/FP design for MRI suites, part one: mechanical considerations

In a two-part series, the importance of effective mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems design for magnetic resonance imaging suites is examined. Part one focuses on mechanical considerations.

5. Understanding NFPA 101 for mission critical facilities

NFPA 101: Life Safety Code 2015 is a reference used for strategies to protect people based on building construction, protection, and occupancy features that minimize the effects of fire and other related hazards. It is the only document that covers life safety for new and existing structures. It is vital to understand the electrical/power systems in mission critical facilities and best practices.

This list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on www.csemag.com, February 20-26, for articles published within the last two months.
