9781936504312: Understanding Psychrometrics, Third Edition

Understanding Psychrometrics serves as a lifetime reference manual and basic refresher course for those who use psychrometrics on a recurring basis and provides a four- to six-hour psychrometrics learning module to students; air-conditioning designers; agricultural, food process, and industrial process engineers; meteorologists; and others.

New in the Third Edition

Revised chapters for wet-bulb temperature and relative humidity and a revised Appendix V that includes a summary of ASHRAE Research Project RP-1485.

New constants for the universal gas constant based on CODATA and a revised molar mass of dry air to account for the increase of CO2 in Earth's atmosphere.

New IAPWS models for the calculation of water properties above and below freezing.

New tables based on the ASHRAE RP-1485 real moist-air numerical model using the ASHRAE LibHuAirProp add-ins for Excel, MATLAB, Mathcad, and EES. Features: Includes Access to Bonus Materials and Sample Software: PDF files of 13 ultra-high-pressure and 12 existing ASHRAE psychrometric charts plus three new 0ºC to 400ºC charts. A limited demonstration version of the ASHRAE LibHuAirProp add-in that allows users to duplicate portions of the real moist-air psychrometric tables in the ASHRAE Handbook Fundamentals for both standard sea level atmospheric pressure and pressures from 5 to 10,000 kPa. The hw.exe program from the second edition, included to enable users to compare the 2009 ASHRAE numerical model real moist-air psychrometric properties with the 1983 ASHRAE-Hyland-Wexler properties. Benefit to the Customer: Multipurpose, go-to resource for students

ASHRAE, founded in 1894, is an international organization of some 50,000 persons. ASHRAE fulfills its mission of advancing heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration to serve humanity and promote a sustainable world through research, standards writing, publishing, and continuing education.

The ASHRAE Handbooks are the design standard for control of built environments with volumes on Systems and Equipment, HVAC Applications, Refrigeration and Fundamentals. Each is updated every four years. In addition to publishing design guidance for engineers, architects, and facility managers, we also publish a series of texts for classroom use.

Some of the areas we publish in include:
-Energy Modeling and Auditing
-High Performance Building Design
-Psychrometrics
-Indoor Air Quality and Environmental Quality
-Data Center Energy Efficiency
-Noise & Vibration Control
-Humidity Control
-HVAC for Healthcare Facilities

About the Author:

Donald P. Gatley, PE, Fellow ASHRAE, is a 1954 mechanical engineering graduate of Vanderbilt University. His career includes 13 years with the Trane Company, 8 years in design/build mechanical contracting, and 30+ years in the practice of consulting engineering. Outside activities include service as chair of Georgia's building energy code committee and as president of the Southface Energy Institute. He is known for his work in the prevention and correction of building moisture problems, energy conservation in buildings, and with hotels. He is a recipient of the ASHRAE Distinguished Service Award and two ASHRAE International Energy Awards. Gatley also authored the EPRI Cool Storage Ethylene Glycol Design Guide (1992), the EPRI Cool Storage Open Hydronic Systems Design Guide (1995) and two chapters of the Mold & Mildew Handbook published by the American Hotel and Motel Association (1991) and co-authored Moisture and Mildew Control (1992). He has written more than 30 articles on flow diagrams, central drinking water systems, the control of DX cooling coils, life-cycle cost of central chilled water plants, effective air-side design, gas phase filtration of exhaust air, thermal storage systems, quieting residential systems, moisture control in the home, and enhanced dehumidification systems. In 2003, he joined with Professors Sebastian Herrmann and Hans-Joachim Kretzschmar of the Department of Technical Thermodynamics, Zittau/Goerlitz University of Applied Sciences, Zittau, Germany for four psychrometric research projects: Determination of a Twenty-First Century Molar Mass for Dry Air Determination of Thermodynamic and Transport Properties of Humid Air for Power-Cycle Calculations for PTB-Bericht RP-1485, Thermodynamic Properties of Real Moist Air, Dry Air, Steam, Water, and Ice for ASHRAE Real Humid Air Psychrometric Function Add-Ins named LibHuAirProp for Excel, MATLAB, Mathcad, and EES.
