View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This book provides an in-depth review of the design, performance and control of variable air volume (VAV) systems. Since they were first developed in the US more than 30 years ago, VAV systems have been widely used in multi-zone air-conditioning applications throughout the world. The system remains one of the principal tools for the HVAC designer addressing commercial applications of medium to large scale. While the book concentrates on single-duct throttling VAV systems, all principal types of VAV systems are discussed, including fan-assisted terminal units and dual-duct VAV. It examines in detail the characteristics, design and engineering of VAV, and also includes comparisons of capital and running costs, energy use and the various alternatives available to the system designer. The book brings together, in a single volume, a wealth of information not otherwise available to the busy, practising HVAC engineer, and will also interest specialist researchers and students of building-services engineering.

About the Author:

A mature entrant, Keith Shepherd started work in the building services industry with a specialist subcontractor. He followed the familiar path trodden by many prospective HVAC engineers by enrolling at the then Institute of Environmental Engineering (IoEE) at London’s South Bank Polytechnic on a part-time certificate course in environmental engineering, subsequently joining the IoEE’s BEng course in environmental engineering from which he graduated with first class honours. During that period he joined a major mechanical and electrical services contractor Crown House Engineering.

He undertook research into variable air volume systems first at South Bank Polytechnic and the IoEE, and subsequently in the Department of Building Engineering at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST), where he was awarded a Master of Science degree by research into variable air volume system design and engineering

Keith Shepherd left the academic world to return to industry, and is presently Technical Director of Archer Associates, a building services design consultancy based in south-east England. Although specialising in HVAC engineering, his experience of the building services industry encompasses design, project management, estimating and quantity surveying functions, in addition to research and lecturing. He is author of several papers on the subject of variable air volume systems.
