Indoor Thermal ComfortBy: AICARR
This Special Issue invites scholars to contribute original research and review articles on innovative design, systems, and/or control domains that can enhance occupant comfort, work productivity, wellbeing in a built environment, and the integration of human factors in buildings energy performance.
There is a strong need to make available to the scientific community a collection of the most recent research results in the field of refrigeration to mitigate climate change. Therefore, this Research Topic is both an opportunity for researchers to demonstrate their innovative proposals, and a necessary response to the need to safeguard our planet while continuing to satisfy of one of the essential human needs: refrigeration.
Moist and compressed air (SRB43)By: SMEITS
Mixtures with one gas component and one vapour component are mixtures of gases and vapours. A typical example of such mixture is moist or humid air. In previous considerations moist or humid air was treated as a vapour-gas mixture, which is in gaseous state, with an important characteristic that, depending of temperature, one of the components can be condensed. Such component is called vapour (water vapour), and the other non-condensing component is gas (dry air). However, in nature, practically there are no dry gases and there is a question whether, due to such characteristics as well as the characteristic of drying the dry air, we should use the term ? dry air. In fact, dry gas (dry air) can be humidified in the form of small drops of mist that result from a mutual chemical reaction of free atoms of the dry atmospheric air components.
2.02 Indoor air qualityBy: ATECYR
This guide analyzes the parameters that must be taken into account in the design of a new installation or in the reform of an existing one, ensuring a correct indoor air quality.
2.03 Acoustics in air installationsBy: ATECYR
In this guidebook, the basic acoustic concepts are explained. The objective is to understand the noise produced by the HVAC installations, evaluate it and be able to propose solutions for its reduction.
The guidebook collects the noise problems resulting from the operation of an air conditioning system, and the most widespread anti-noise measures. The guidebook proposes and solves several practical cases, analyzes the problems of real installations and includes the necessary calculation methodology for optimal acoustics.
This guidebook colletcs the average values of the measurement stations of the atmospheric polution of the main cities of Spain: A Coru
3.01 PsychrometryBy: ATECYR
This guidebook is about the psychometric transformations in humid air. In air conditioning it is necessary to know precisely the properties of humid air, and its possible transformations, since this will be the main working fluid that will evolve within the Air Treatment Units (ATU) and the areas within the buildings
