Looking for SI Edition?

Updates for this edition reflect in information from the 2013 ASHRAE Handbook—Fundamentals, including lighting, materials, and equipment used in buildings today, as well as new methods available since the first edition.

  • New internal heat gain data for office equipment
  • New methods and data for the effects of internal shading on solar heat gains
  • New data on heat gains from kitchen equipment, based on experimental measurements
  • New weather data for more than 6,000 stations worldwide
  • A new ASHRAE clear-sky model, applicable worldwide
  • Improved methods for generating design day temperature profiles
  • A major revision of thermal properties data for building materials

This essential engineering reference begins with an overview of heat transfer processes in buildings and a discussion of how they are analyzed together to determine the HVAC load. Later chapters give in-depth coverage of the radiant time series method (RTSM) and heat balance method (HBM) theory and application, systems and psychrometrics, and heating loads, with extensive, step-by-step examples.

With this book comes access to spreadsheets for computing cooling loads with the RTSM and calculating the solar irradiation, conduction time factor series, and radiant time factors used in the method. The spreadsheets can be adapted to compute cooling loads for a wide range of buildings.
