The First Century of Air Conditioning

  title={The First Century of Air Conditioning},
  author={John E. Janssen},
About the Author John E. Janssen chaired Standards Project Committee (SPC) 62, which developed ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62–1989, Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Qualtiy and also served on the SPC that wrote Standard 62–1981. Until his retirement, he was a principal research fellow at Honeywell. Janssen has authored several Journal articles, including “The V in ASHRAE, An Historical Perspective” as part of ASHRAE’s Centennial series. W

General aspects of carbon dioxide as a refrigerant
Carbon dioxide is an innocuous refrigerant for the environment. It is a substance of current interest in the refrigeration area. Its good thermodynamic and heat transfer properties have placed it in

Five energy generations of tall buildings: an historical analysis of energy consumption in high-rise buildings
Whilst there have been numerous categorisations of high-rise buildings according to their function, architectural style, height or structural strategy, historically little work has been undertaken to
Stratospheric ozone, global warming, and the principle of unintended consequences—An ongoing science and policy success story
How early warnings given by vigilant scientists highlighted the dangers of ODS and calls for action and boycotts by concerned citizens 35 years ago and regulatory actions taken by governments worldwide 25 years ago successfully phased out ODSs and avoided global catastrophe are explained.
Performance analysis for load control of R744(carbon dioxide) transcritical refrigeration system using hot gas by-pass valve
Abstract The automatic hot gas by-pass technique is applied to control the capacity of refrigeration and air-conditioning system when operating at part load. In the scheme, the hot gas from the
Thermodynamic, Economic, and Environmental Comparison Between the Direct and Indirect CO2 Refrigeration Cycle With Conventional Indirect NH3 Cycle With Considering a Heat Recovery System in an Ice Rink: A Case Study
In industrial refrigeration systems, such as ice rinks, because of consumption of a lot of energy, the selection of a refrigeration system is very important. At this work, environmental
Performance Analysis of R744(Carbon Dioxide) for Transcritical Refrigeration System
In this paper, cycle performance analysis for cooling capacity, compression work and COP of R744() transcritical vapor compression refrigeration system is presented to offer the basic design data for
