Consulting-Specifying Engineer Top 5 most read articles online, for Nov. 16-22, covered lighting and the energy codes, automation and controls for HVAC systems, dedicated outdoor air systems and code compliance, taking BIM to the next level, and HVAC fans and smoke control. Link to each article below.

1. Lighting and the energy codes

Engineers have many resources when designing energy-efficient lighting in nonresidential buildings. Lighting designers do not have to sacrifice quality or reduce lighting levels just to meet energy codes. 

2. Automation and controls for HVAC systems

Here are some best practices for designing building automation systems (BAS) and controls for HVAC systems.

3. Dedicated outdoor air systems and code compliance

Dedicated outdoor air systems (DOAS) deliver dehumidified air to buildings to improve the indoor air quality and thermal comfort.

4. Taking BIM to the next level

Electrical engineers are being pushed toward using BIM.

5. Integration: HVAC fans and smoke control

Fire, life safety, and HVAC systems must be integrated by the engineer to achieve reliability in smoke control systems. This includes mechanical equipment, physical barriers, or a combination of both.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on csemag.com, November 16-22, for articles published within the last two months.
