Consulting-Specifying Engineer Top 5 most read articles online, for Sep. 14-20, covered minimizing arc flash hazards, NFPA 110 and mission critical facilities, PV system fundamentals, HVAC system noise and vibration issues, and the 2015 Product of the Year winners. Link to each article below.

1. Minimizing arc flash hazards

Rely on codes and standards to develop a robust arc flash mitigation plan.

2. Complying with NFPA 110 in mission critical facilities

Design engineers must consider the implications of combining emergency, legally required, and optional standby systems to ensure code compliance, maintainability, and economics.

3. PV system fundamentals

Photovoltaic (PV) systems are one of the best options for on-site power generation. Commercial buildings must generate power as we move forward with the AIA 2030 challenge, net zero energy, and other energy efficiency programs.

4. Solving noise, vibration problems in HVAC systems

Vibration, sound, and noise can be mitigated by designing HVAC systems properly, which may include isolation pads, flexible pipe connectors, or other means.

5. 2015 Product of the Year winners

Consulting-Specifying Engineer readers have cast their votes for the 2015 Product of the Year; read about the winners.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on csemag.com, September 14-20, for articles published within the last two months.
