While great strides have been made in HVACR technologies in recent years, significant improvements in energy efficiency, reliability and product life have been elusive in mid-range applications. In this 50-500 TR range, the most promising potential for significant energy reduction lies in compressor integrated part load efficiency (IPLV) improvements.(More)
This study evaluated the accuracy of manual and academic variables in predicting preclinical operative technique performance. In addition, it tested and compared two teaching methods and their effects on performance outcomes. Simple correlations and stepwise multiple regression analysis were used.
