Refrigeration and air conditioning
This is a thorough revision of the definitive, classic text for any level course on refrigeration, refrigeration and air conditioning, and environmental control in buildings. It is anExpand
Special Project 41: development of recommendations to upgrade ASHRAE Standard 90A-1980, Energy Conservation in New Building Design
In this article, the development of recommendations to upgrade ASHRAE Standard 90A-1980 is traced. The amount of research involved and the process followed in making the recommendations is given inExpand
Risk Analysis and Management for Critical Asset Protection (RAMCAP Plus)
The Risk Analysis and Management for Critical Asset Protection (RAMCAP(R)) methodology and its current, updated version, RAMCAP PlusSM, is an all-hazard risk and resilience management process forExpand
Experimental investigation of a charring ablative material exposed to combined convective and radiative heating.
The purpose of the investigation was to determine the effects of various modes and levels of heat transfer on the effectiveness of the material (phenolic nylon) in providing protection against entryExpand
The Effects of Gravity on Structural Vibration
A simplified method for incorporating gravitational effects into the analysis of structural vibrations, and for determining the relative importance of those effects, has been developed. The nonlinearExpand
Potential annual energy savings resulting from window shading devices on three prototypical Austin, Texas, single-family residences were computed in this study. Savings were calculated for interiorExpand
Evaluation of RP-459 algorithms for modeling external melt, ice-on-pipe thermal storage system components
An evaluation of the ice-on-pipe and ice storage tank components of RP-459, Component Models for Computer Simulation of Ice Storage Systems is undertaken, finding that the algorithms provide reasonable results for theIce-building portion of the cycle but do not track the melting well. Expand
GECEM: Grid-Enabled Computational Electromagnetics
A prototype Grid integrating resources at the BAE Systems Advanced Technology Centre near Bristol, the Welsh eScience Centre in Cardiff, and the University of Wales, Swansea (UWS) is discussed. Expand
Health and environmental impacts of increased generation of coal ash and FGD sludges. Report to the Committee on Health and Ecological Effects of Increased Coal Utilization.
The incremental impacts of coal ash and flue gas desulfurization (FGD) wastes associated with increased coal usage by utilities and industry under the National Energy Plan (NEP) are focused on. Expand
Development of a security vulnerability assessment process for the RAMCAP chemical sector.
The results of the security vulnerability analysis process that was developed and field tested for the chemical manufacturing sector are described, intended to provide a common basis for making vulnerability assessments and risk-based decisions for homeland security. Expand
