Brad Cochran, P.E., Member ASHRAE


    Brad Cochran, P.E., Member ASHRAE, has over 25 years of experience conducting wind-tunnel, analytical, and computational fluid dynamic (CFD) modeling studies of airflow in and around man-made structures. In recent years, Cochran has led the development of new design and control techniques to minimize the energy consumption for laboratory exhaust stacks through the implementation of variable-air-volume (VAV) technologies. He has successfully designed and employed VAV exhaust systems for more than 100 laboratories throughout the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. He holds a B.S. and M.S. in mechanical engineering, an M.B.A., and a P.E. license (CO). Cochran is the author of the chapter on exhaust stack design in the ASHRAE Laboratory Design Guide. He serves on the ASSE Z9.5 standards committee and is Chair of ASHRAE’s TC9.10, Laboratory Systems.
