INTRODUCTION:

This report documents the preliminary design of a single-zone air

conditioning system for a public library in Dallas, Texas. The circular-of-

requirements (COR) for the HVAC system is provided in Appendix A. When

information, beyond that provided in Appendix A, was necessary for design

calculations, assumptions were necessary. These assumptions are stated

throughout this report, where applicable.

A significant portion of the formulas, tables, and design methodology

needed for the design of the subject HVAC system were taken from Reference

(1). However, the data used in Reference (1) is based on current ASHRAE

standards, and the ASHRAE database. Therefore, this report adheres to current

ASHRAE practice and standards.

Appendix B is a set of drawing sheets, which include various library

arrangements, drawings, and system schematics. These drawings are

referenced throughout the report where applicable. Appendix C contains system

design calculations and process diagrams, and Appendix D contains vendor

provided data for several selected HVAC system components.

DESIGN CONDITIONS:

The design indoor and outdoor conditions are prescribed in Appendix A,

and are as follows:

Summer

Indoor: 75oF dry bulb, 50% Relative Humidity

Outdoor: 2.5% Design Conditions

Winter

Indoor: 72oF dry bulb, 30% Relative Humidity

Outdoor: 97.5% Design Conditions

For Dallas, Texas from Ref. (1), Table C-1, the Summer 2.5% design

conditions are 100oF dry bulb and 75oF wet bulb, and the Winter 97.5% design

conditions are 22oF and an assumed 0% Relative Humidity. Therefore, for

Dallas, Texas, the library air-conditioning system design conditions become:

Summer

Indoor: 75oF dry bulb, 50% Relative Humidity

Outdoor: 100 oF dry bulb, 75 oF wet bulb

Winter

Indoor: 72oF dry bulb, 30% Relative Humidity

Outdoor: 22oF, assumed 0% Relative Humidity

BUILDING DESCRIPTION:

The library, as described in Appendix A, is a one story, slab-on-grade

floor, having a total floor area of 5,000 sq. ft., with internal dimensions of 100-ft

by 50-ft, and 10-ft high ceilings. Windows, as described in Appendix A, occupy

50% of the north and south side wall areas (i.e. 0.50(10-ft x 100-ft) = 500 sq. ft. of

windows on both the north and south walls

A nominal window size of 4-ft by 6-ft was selected from Ref. (2), Ch. 27,

Table 5., which provides information on standard fenestration products. This

window size best suits a library application, since they are tall - allowing sunlight

in to aid in reading. A detail of the selected window is provided in Appendix B,

and they have a face area of 24 square feet. Therefore, to best meet the COR

window area requirements, twenty-one windows are installed on the north wall

and twenty windows are installed on the south wall. This is a best fit to the COR

window requirements, without resorting to using non-standard window sizes. In

addition to the windows, doors are specified for the south and east walls. These

doors are 6-ft by 7.5-ft solid core swinging metal doors, without a storm door.

A ten-foot by fifteen-foot Utility Room was chosen and placed on the West

wall of the library. This Utility Room is illustrated in Appendix B. The Utility

Room is not air-conditioned, and therefore, for design purposes the temperature

in the Utility Room is chosen to be the average of the inside and outside

temperatures.

Throughout the design process, surface areas of the building, exposed to

the outside environment, are used in calculating space heating and cooling

loads. Therefore, these physical dimensions of the various exposed surfaces of

the library are tabulated in Table 1 and are based on the library sketches

provided as Sheets 1 and 2 of Appendix B.

North Wall

Window Area: 21 x (4-ft x 6-ft) windows = 504 ft2

Wall Area: 100-ft x 10-ft wall - (window area) = 496 ft2

South Wall

Window Area: 20 x (4-ft x 6-ft) windows = 480 ft2

Door Area: 1 x (6-ft x 7.5-ft) door = 45 ft2

Wall Area: 100-ft x 10-ft wall - (window & door area) = 475 ft2

East Wall

Door Area: 1 x (6-ft x 7.5-ft) door = 45 ft2

Wall Area: 50-ft x 10-ft wall - (door area) = 455 ft2

West Wall

Wall Area (to outside): 2 x (17.5-ft x 10-ft wall = 350 ft2

Wall Area (to Utility Rm): 15-ft x 10-ft wall = 150 ft2

Roof

Roof Area: 50-ft x 100-ft = 5000 ft2

Floor

Floor Area: 50-ft x 100-ft = 5000 ft2

CALCULATION OF SPACE HEATING LOAD:

As described in Ch. 5 of Ref. (1), the space heating load is an estimate of

the maximum probable heat loss of each space or room to be heated. This does

not include the heating requirements due to the outside air entering the library

from the HVAC system (to meet fresh air requirements). Fresh air is considered

when determining the heating system characteristics, but is not a component of

the space heating load.

The space heating load is composed of two major components. First, is

the heating load required to handle transmission losses due to heat transfer from

the air inside the library to outside, through the walls, floor, roof, and various

windows and doors. Second, is the heating load required to account for outside

air infiltration through doors, windows, etc.

The heat gain due to the sun, as well as the heat gain from internal

electrical and mechanical equipment is not considered when calculating the

space-heating load. This is a good assumption, because the heating system

must be able to maintain the design indoor temperature on cloudy/overcast days

when minimal equipment is being used. Also, infiltration air is not considered

when determining the amount of fresh air required. Although infiltration air is

outdoor air entering the library, the full 20 cfm per person ventilation air

requirement must be met by the system, not by infiltration.

Transmission Load:

Transmission losses are calculated individually for each building

component from the general equation:

q& = UA(ti − to )

where 'U' is the Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient for the component under

investigation, A is the surface area of the component, 'ti' is the inside air

temperature, and 'to' is the outside air temperature.

In order to determine the heating load due to transmission losses, Overall

Heat Transfer Coefficients must be found for each building component exposed

to the outside environment. Sketches of various building components exposed to

the outside are provided in Appendix B, Sheet 3. The calculation of the Overall

Heat Transfer Coefficients for various outside surfaces is as follows:

Walls - The walls, as described in Appendix A, are 4-in. face brick and 6-in

concrete block with a 1-in. air gap between them. The various sub-components

of the walls each have their own heat transfer coefficient, and the heat transfer

coefficients for the convection losses on the outside and inside wall surfaces

must also be included. Using the values found in Ref. (1), Table 8-21, the overall

heat transfer coefficient for the library walls is determined. A listing of each wall

sub-component, it's classification (per Table 8-21), U-value, as well as a summed

overall heat transfer coefficient for the library walls is provided in Table 2. It

should be noted that the transmission heat loss for the portion of the West wall

4

exposed to the Utility Room is calculated by using an assumed temperature in

the Utility Room. Since the Utility Room is not air-conditioned, the temperature

during the winter is chosen as the average of the outside and space design

temperature.

From Ref. (1), Table 8-21 (ft2-hr-oF/Btu)

Outside surface resistance A0 0.33

4" face brick A2 0.43

Air space resistance B1 0.91

6" concrete block *(C3+C8)/2 0.91

Inside surface resistance E0 0.69

Total Resistance 3.27

Wall Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient (U = 1/R), Btu/ft2-hr-oF 0.31

* Note: 6" concrete block was not available in Ref. (1), Table 8-21. Therefore, the thermal resistance values for 4"

concrete block (C3) and 8" concrete block (C8) were averaged for use as a 6" concrete block thermal resistance.

Windows - The windows as specified are heat absorbing out, clear in type

insulating glass, with a nominal 1/4" thickness. From Ref. (1), Table 5-8a, the

Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient for "Double Glass, 1/4 inch air space, aluminum

frame, without thermal break" was selected as the best representative description

of the specified windows. From Table 5-8a, the Window Overall Heat Transfer

Coefficient is taken as 0.65 Btu/ft2-hr-oF.

Doors - The doors, as specified, are 35-mm nominal thickness, 6-ft by 7.5-ft,

solid core, swinging metal doors without storm doors. From Ref. (1) Table 5-9,

the "steel door, solid urethane foam core, without thermal break" was selected to

best represent the specified doors. However, Table 5-9 does not provide the

Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient for a 35-mm thick door. The value available is

for a 1-3/4" door. In the Table 5-9 notes, "moderate extrapolation" is allowed.

Therefore, the Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient for a 35-mm steel door with solid

urethane foam core, without thermal break, is extrapolated as follows:

U 0.40

=

1" 1.75"

35mm

25.4mm

where '0.40' is the Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient for a 1-3/4" door, per Table

5-9. From this extrapolation, the door coefficient 'U' is 0.31 Btu/ft2-hr-oF.

Roof - As specified, the roof is flat built-up roofing, roof construction code #9,

dark color outside surface, without suspended ceiling below the roof deck. Ref.

(1), Table 5-7b provides a breakdown of individual roof components and their

thermal resistance's for a specific roof example. This example does not match

with the roof specified for the library; however, the components of the specified

5

roof can be parsed from the individual roof components in the example roof of

Table 5-7b. The specified roof components for the library, their thermal

resistances, and the roof Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient are provided in Table

3.

(ft2-hr-oF/Btu)

Outside surface (15 mph wind) 0.17

Built-up roofing, 0.375 in. 0.33

Concrete slab, lightweight aggregate, 2 in. 2.22

Inside surface (still air) 0.61

Total Resistance 3.33

Roof Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient (U = 1/R), Btu/ft2-hr-oF 0.30

Floor - As stated on page 177 of Ref. (1), the transmission heat loss calculation

for a slab-on-grade floor uses a slightly different form of the general heat transfer

equation than previously stated. The appropriate equation for a slab-on-grade-

floor is:

q& = U ′P(ti − to )

where, U' is the overall heat transfer coefficient expressed as heat transfer per

unit length of building perimeter, per degree temperature difference. The

perimeter of the floor is (100-ft + 100-ft + 50-ft + 50-ft) 300 ft, assuming the Utilty

Room does not have a slab-on-grade floor.

Also, 'degree days' input for Dallas, Texas is needed to determine U'.

From Table C-2 of Ref. (1), the yearly degree days total is 2363 for Dallas,

Texas. Therefore, from Table 5-12 of Ref. (1), the U' for a 8" slab-on-grade floor,

brick face, uninsulated, using the 2950 degrees day column, is 0.62 Btu/ft-hr-oF.

Now that all the individual overall heat transfer coefficients have been

determined, the total transmission heat loss from the building to the outside can

be calculated. Table 4 tabulates the overall heat transfer coefficients, and shows

the calculations used to determine the total transmission heat loss. As shown in

Table 4, the total transmission heat loss is 146,411 Btu/hr.

Infiltration Air:

The amount of air that infiltrates the building during the winter conditions

can be determined by several methods. These include the crack method and the

air-change method. The crack method determines the infiltration rate based on

pressure differences between the outside air and inside (due to wind), along with

the characteristics of the windows, doors, etc. (i.e. their "cracks"). The air-

change method assumes a value of air-changes per hour, and with this

assumption determines the infiltration rate for a known volume. For this

preliminary design, the air-change method is considered to be acceptable. Also,

since the library is only a one story building, stack effects are not considered.

As stated on page 227 of Ref. (1), the number of air changes per hour

(ACH) can vary from 0.5 (very low) to 2.0 (very high). The ACH is assumed to be

a moderate to low value. Therefore for the Library design, an ACH of 1.0 is

selected. Equation 7-10 of Ref. (1), which is used to determine the infiltration, is

as follows:

Q& = ACH (V ) / 60

where Q is the infiltration rate in cfm, ACH is the assumed number of air changes

per hour, and V is the gross space volume in cubic feet. The gross space

volume of the library is (100-ft x 50-ft x 10-ft) 50,000 ft3. Therefore the infiltration

rate of outside air is 1.0(50,000)/60 = 833 cfm.

heating load. This load has a sensible component and a latent component. The

sensible heating component due to infiltration is the sensible heat required to

increase the infiltrated air to the design indoor temperature. The latent

component is the latent heat required to humidify the infiltrated air to the design

indoor relative humidity. Equation 7-8b of Ref. (1) is used to calculate the

sensible infiltration heat load, and is as follows:

7

Q& c p (ti − to )

specific heat of air (taken as 0.24 Btu/lbm-oF), ti and to are the inside and outside

air temperatures respectively, and vo is the outside air specific volume

(interpolated from the Ref. (1), Table A-2a as 12.14 ft3/lbm). From this equation

and our calculated infiltration air rate of 833 cfm (50,000 ft3/hr), the sensible

heating load due to infiltration is (50,000)(0.24)(72-22)/12.14 = 49,423 Btu/hr.

Equation 7-9b of Ref. (1) is used to calculate the latent infiltration heat

load, and is as follows:

Q&

q&l = (Wi − Wo )i fg

vo

where Wi and Wo are the inside and outside humidity ratios respectively

(lbmv/lbma), and ifg is the enthalpy of vaporization or, the latent heat of

vaporization. From the Psychometric Diagram, the inside humidity ratio Wi is

0.005 lbmv/lbma. The outside humidity ratio is assumed to be zero. This

assumption is valid since outisde air during the heating season is very dry (low

relative humidity) and therefore a conservative aproach would be to assume

there is no water vapor in the outside air. The enthaply of vaporization, from

Table A-1a of Ref. (1), at the indoor design temperature of 72 oF, is 1052.8

Btu/lbmv. From this equation and our calculated infiltration air rate of 833 cfm

(50,000 ft3/hr), the latent heating load due to infiltration is calculated as

(50,000/12.14)(0.005)(1052.8) = 21,680 Btu/hr.

The space heating load due to transmission through the building roof,

walls, floor, windows, and doors is combined with the space heating load due to

the infiltration of outside air through windows, doors, etc. This is the total space

heating load, and is tabulated in Table 5.

Supply Air for Space Heating

In order to determine whether the heating season or cooling season is the

driving season for the selection of the air-distribution system, the supply air

requirements for space heating must be calculated. This will be compared to

similiar calculations for space cooling to determine a design airflow rate.

Appendix C contains a process diagram of the heating system on a

Psychometric Chart, as well as detailed heating system calculations. Also,

Appendix B, Sheet 4 is a detailed schematic diagram of the heating system. A

pre-heater was considered necessary, to bring the temperature of the fresh air

above the dewpoint temperature of the air inside the utility room. This ensures

that condensation will not form on the ducting leading into the furnace. As stated

previously, the utility room temperature is assumed to be the average of the

outside design temperature and the desired indoor temperature, namely 47oF.

A summary of the results of the detailed calculations is provided in Table

6. It is important to note that these calculations do not take into consideration the

effects of fan heat to the system.

As stated on page 247 of Ref. (1), the heat loss calculations, during winter

conditions, are based on steady-state heat transfer, and this basis is adequate

for selecting heating and humidification equipment. For the cooling load,

however, steady-state heat transfer would not adequately represent the heat

gain, and would lead to oversized equipment. This is because the solar

contributions to the space cooling load have a considerable lag effect, before the

heat is actually absorbed by the inside air.

There are several methods that can be used to calculate the space

cooling load. These include the "Transfer Function Method," and the "Cooling

Load Temperature Difference, Solar Cooling Load, and Cooling Load Factor

(CLTD/SCL/CLF) Method." The CLTD/SCL/CLF Method is a hand calculation

9

method that uses extensive tables and charts that were derived using the

Transfer Function Method. To determine the space cooling load for the Library,

the CLTD/SCL/CLF Method is employed.

The Circular of Requirements (Appendix A) states that the maximum

cooling load occurs at 15:00 solar time, during the month of August. This

statement greatly simplifies the process of determining the design space cooling

load. If the time that the maximum cooling load occurs was not provided, the

space cooling load would have to be determined for several times, in an iterative

fashion, in order to select the maximum. Since the time of the library maximum

space cooling load is known, only one iteration is necessary. Each contributing

component of the space cooling load is calculated separately as follows, and is

then summed to provide the total sensible and latent space cooling loads. The

overall heat transfer coefficients used for conductive heat transfer are identical to

those used when calculating the space heating load.

Roof - For the roof, A CLTD value is required. As stated in the COR, the roof is

given as roof #9, dark color outside surface, without a suspended ceiling below

the roof deck. The overall heat transfer coefficient, calculated previously is 0.30.

For determining the CLTD value, Table 8-18 of Ref. (1) is used. The library

maximum cooling load occurs during the month of August, however Table 8-18 is

for July 21st. A footnote in Table 8-18 states that "for design purposes, the data

will suffice for about two weeks from the 21st day of the given month (in this case

July)." Therefore it is assumed that Table 8-18, and all other CLTD tables for

July 21st with similar footnotes, are sufficient for the design of the library cooling

system maximum load during August.

Using Roof #9 and 1500 solar time (given time of maximum cooling load),

the roof CLTD is selected from Table 8-18 as 46. This value, however, must be

adjusted to reflect the differences in the library design temperatures and those

temperatures used to derive the Table. The adjustment is as follows:

minus the (daily range/2). From Ref. (1), Table C-1, the daily range for Dallas,

Texas is 20oF. And with the design indoor and outdoor temperatures listed in the

"Design Conditions" section of this report, the roof CLTD is adjusted as follows:

To find the sensible heat gain to the library due to transmission through

the roof, the following equation is used:

q& c = UA(CLTD )

Therefore, with U=0.30, A = 5,000 ft2, and CLTD = 54, the library space cooling

load due to the roof is calculated to be 81,000 Btu/hr.

10

Walls - For the walls, a CLTD value must be determined. The wall resistance

was previously determined as R = 3.23. The wall # is determined from Ref. (1),

Table 8-22b. With R = 3.23, and with face brick as the secondary wall material

and C3 (4" heavyweight concrete block) as the principle material, the wall # is 5.

And, with R = 3.23, and with face brick as the secondary wall material and C8 (8"

heavyweight concrete block) as the principle material, the wall # is 10. Since the

Library walls' actual secondary material is face brick, and principle material is 6"

heavyweight concrete block, a wall # of 7 was interpolated. Therefore using a

wall # of 7, and a solar time of 1500, the CLTD values for the North, South, East,

and West walls were selected. They are also adjusted similar to the CLTD

adjustment done for the roof. Table 7 contains the calculations for each wall,

using the surface areas and overall heat transfer coefficients determined

previously for the space heating load. The effects of the Utility Room on the

West wall are considered to be negligible.

West 22 30 0.31 500 4,650

Total Space Cooling Load due to Walls = 18,694 Btu/hr

Glass & Doors (Conduction) - For the conduction portion of the heat gain

through glass windows and doors, a CLTD value must be determined. These

CLTD values are determined from Ref. (1), Table 8-23, for a solar time of 1500

hrs. These values, and their corrected values (corrected similar to the correction

to roof CLTD) are provided in Table 8, along with calculations to determine the

space cooling load due to windows and doors. The surface areas and Overall

Heat Transfer Coefficients were determined previously for the space heating

load.

North Windows 14 22 0.65 504 7,207

South Windows 14 22 0.65 480 6,864

South Doors 14 22 0.31 45 307

East Doors 14 22 0.31 45 307

Total Space Cooling Load due to Glass-Door Conduction = 14,685 Btu/hr

Glass (Solar) - To determine the Solar contribution to the space cooling load

from windows, a Shading Coefficient (SC) and a Solar Cooling Load Factor

(SCL) must be found. As stated in the COR in Appendix A, the windows are

11

equipped with medium venetian blinds. Also, from Ref. (1), Table 8-25a, for

single-story buildings, using 4 walls, and carpet floor covering, the Zone Type is

selected as 'A' for Glass Solar. Then from Ref. (1), Table 8-24, the SCL factors

for the North and South windows are selected with a solar time of 1500 hrs. As

stated in the notes for Table 8-24, the data is applicable to the month of August.

And, from Table 6-5, for windows that are heat absorbing out, clear in-type

insulating glass, a Shading Coefficient of 0.39 is selected. The contribution to

the space cooling load from glass solar effects is calculated as shown in Table 9.

The heat transfer areas were calculated previously when determining the space

heating load.

North windows 504 0.39 36 7,076

South Windows 480 0.39 52 9,734

Total Space Cooling Load Due to Glass (Solar) = 16,810 Btu/hr

Floor - As stated on page 177 of Ref. (1), during summer conditions the heat

transfer to the floor slab is negligible.

Internal Lights - To determine the contribution to the space cooling load from

the internal lights, a Cooling Load Factor (CLF) must be determined and

multiplied with the instantaneous heat gain of the lighting. The instantaneous

heat gain can be determined from the following formula:

allowance factor. As stated in the COR (Appendix A) the product of W and Fu is

4 Watts/ft2 of floor area. The lights as stated in the COR are fluorescent type,

and from Ref. (1), page 280, for general applications of fluorescent lights, Fs is

taken to be 1.2. Therefore with a floor area of 5,000 ft2, the instantaneous heat

gain is calculated as 3.41(4)(5000)(1.2) = 81,840 Btu/hr.

From Table 8-25a, the Library is Zone Type 'B' for lights. As stated in the

COR, the lights are on at 8AM, and off at 11 PM. Therefore they are on for 15

hrs each day. The maximum load occurs at 1500 hrs, therefore, the number of

hours the lights are on up until the maximum cooling load time is 7 hours. Using

these values and Zone Type 'A', from Table 8-27, the CLF is found to be 0.965.

Therefore the contribution to the space cooling load from internal lights is found

to be (0.965)(81,840) = 78,976 Btu/hr.

Equipment - To determine the contribution to the space cooling load from the

equipment, a Cooling Load Factor (CLF) must be determined and multiplied with

12

the instantaneous heat gain of the equipment. The instantaneous heat gain from

the equipment is determined in a similar fashion to the calculation for internal

lighting. As stated in the COR, the Library equipment emits 0.5 Watts/ft2 of floor

area. Also stated in the COR is that the equipment is on from 8AM to 5PM.

Therefore, the equipment is on for a total of 9 hrs, and is on for 7 hours at the

maximum cooling load time of 1500 hrs. From Ref. (1), Table 8-25a, the Library

Zone Type is 'B' for equipment and people. With these values, using Ref. (1),

Table 8-26, the CLF for equipment is found to be 0.93. Therefore the

contribution to the space cooling load from equipment is found to be

3.41(0.5)(5,000)(0.93) = 7,928 Btu/hr.

People (sensible) - The sensible portion of the instantaneous heat gain due to

the Library occupants requires the determination of a Cooling Load Factor. First,

from Ref. (1), Table 8-11, the instantaneous sensible heat gain for people seated

doing very light work is 245 Btu/hr per person. And from Ref. (1), Table 8-25a,

the Library Zone Type is 'B' for equipment and people. As stated in the COR, the

people enter the space at 8AM and leave at 9PM (13 hours in space). And, at

the point of maximum cooling load (1500 hrs) the people will have been in the

space for 7 hours. With this data, a CLF of 0.94 is determined from Ref. (1),

Table 8-26. Therefore, for 75 people called out in the COR, the sensible portion

of the space cooling load due to people is (75)(245)(0.94) = 17,273 Btu/hr.

People (latent) - The latent portion of the instantaneous heat gain is immediately

absorbed by the space air, and does not require a CLF factor for adding it to the

space cooling load. From Ref. (1), Table 8-11, for people seated doing very light

work, the latent heat gain is 155 Btu/hr per person. For 75 people, the latent

portion of the space cooling load due to people is (75)(155) = 11,625 Btu/hr.

Infiltration Air - As calculated previously for the space heating load, using the

Air-Change Method, the infiltration air rate is 833 cfm. As stated in Ref. (1),

page 331, "No CLF factors are necessary, since infiltration is convective in

nature, and immediately becomes cooling load."

As stated in the "Design Conditions" section of this report, the outside air

is 100oF dry bulb, and 75oF wet bulb. From the Psychometric Chart in

conjunction with Ref. (1), Table A-2a, the outside air conditions are: 100oF, 32%

relative humidity, and a specific volume of 14.419 ft3/lbm. The specific heat is

taken as 0.24 Btu/lbm-oF.

The sensible portion of the space cooling load due to infiltration air is

determined the same way as determined previously for the space heating load

with the following formula:

Q& c p (t o − t i )

q& s =

vo

Therefore, the sensible portion of the space cooling load due to infiltration air is

found as (50,000)(0.24)(100-75)/14.419 = 20,806 Btu/hr.

13

The latent portion of the space cooling load due to infiltration air is also

determined in the same fashion as was done for the space heating load using the

following formula:

Q&

q& l = (Wo − Wi )i fg

vo

From Ref. (1), Table A-1a, the latent heat of vaporization (ifg) at 100oF is 1037

Btu/lbm. And from the Psychometric Chart, Wo = 0.0130 lbmv/lbma, and Wi =

0.0092 lbmv/lbma. With this data the latent portion of the space cooling load due

to infiltration air is found as (50,000)(0.0130 - 0.0092)(1037)/14.419 = 13,665

Btu/hr.

A summary of all calculated space cooling loads, and the tabulated resulting total

space cooling load are provided in Table 10.

Supply Air for Space Cooling

Appendix C contains a process diagram of the cooling system on a

Psychometric Chart, as well as detailed cooling system calculations. Also,

Appendix B, Sheet 5 is a detailed schematic diagram of the cooling system. A

summary of the results of the detailed calculations is provided in Table 11. It is

important to note that these calculations do not take into consideration the effects

of fan heat to the system.

As stated in the COR (Appendix A), the refrigeration cycle chosen for the

Library is a Freon (R-22) cycle operating at a 30oF evaporator temperature and

with a 10oF superheat before the refirgerant enters the compressor, and a 110oF

condensing temperature with 10oF of subcooling before the expansion valve.

Appendix B, Sheet 6, contains a detailed diagram of this system employed to

provided cooling and dehumidification to the Library. As shown on Sheet 6, a

cooling tower is utilized to transfer the heat from the condenser cooling water to

the ambient air, and the chilled water system provides chilled water to the

air/water heat exchanger which is the cooling/dehumidification coil for the Library.

Appendix C contains detailed cooling system calculations for the Library

Air-Conditioning system as well as a diagram showing the process on a Freon

(R-22) Pressure-Enthalpy diagram. The state points shown on the Appendix C

Pressure-Enthaply diagram correspond to the state points as shown on the Air-

Conditioning System Schematic (Sheet 6, Appendix B). Also, on the Air-

Conditioning System Schematic, it is shown that the Chilled Water enters the

Cooling/Dehumdification coil at 42oF, and leaves it at 52oF. And, as shown,

cooling water enters the condenser at 82oF and leaves it at 92oF.

The detailed calculations in Appendix C show the process of calculating

the Theoretical BHP of the Chiller Compressor, Water Chiller (R-22 Evaporator)

size in terms of chilled water circulation rate, and the Water-Cooled Condenser

size in terms of GPM of water flow and capacity. It is assumed, for the

calculations, that the heat transfer in the chilled water piping is negligible. With

15

this assumption, the design cooling/dehumidification unit capacity can be

equated to the Water Chiller (R-22 Evaporator) capacity.

From this known Water Chiller capacity, along with the known refrigeration

cycle state points, the mass flow rate of Freon in the theoretical refrigeration

cycle was determined. Then, using the calculated mass flow rate of Freon, the

Theoretical BHP of the Compressor was determined. And, using an energy

balance on the refrigeration cycle (Qcondenser = Qevaporator + Wcompressor, see Sheet

6, Appendix B) the Theoretical capacity of the Condenser was determined.

To meet the cooling and dehumidification needs of the Library, a York,

Model LCHWC 35, Reciprocating, Packaged Liquid Chiller was selected with a

cooling capacity of 33.8 tons. This Chiller meets the Library cooling

requirements with a 10% margin. Details of this Chiller Unit are provided in

Appendix D. The selection methodology is provided in the Appendix C

calculations, and any assumptions not stated here are stated in Appendix C.

AIR-HANDLING/DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM DESIGN:

For the Library, a low-velocity air distribution system was selected. A

high-velocity system would likely not meet the noise requirements for a library

application, and are normally selected for more industrial-type applications. As

stated in the COR (Appendix A), the recommended air velocities for the library air

distribution system are:

Air Supply Diffusers 400 fpm

Return Air Registers 200 fpm

Cooling Coil 500 fpm

Also, the combined supply and return air pressure drop should not exceed

4.0 in w.g. This requirement is likely based on an independent cost analysis

which compared costs due to duct size (non-recurring costs) and costs due to fan

power consumption (recurring costs). From this analysis, a maximum system

pressure drop of 4.0 in w.g. may have been selected.

The air distribution system should be designed for the maximum

volumetric flow rate that the system will operate with. In heating mode, the

supply air required was previously determined to be 4,113 cfm. And, in cooling

mode, the supply air required was previously determined to be 11,026 cfm.

Obviously, the cooling season supply air requirements will drive the air

distribution system design, since the required volumetric flow rate is much larger.

The process followed in developing the air distribution system is as

follows. First, the design airflow is selected. Based on the cooling season

required cfm, a design airflow rate of 11,000 cfm is selected. The velocity

limitations on the system were provided in the COR, and are listed above. Next,

the diffuser and return grills are selected, and their corresponding pressure

losses are determined. Then the layout of the supply and return air-ducting

network is accomplished. With the duct layout decided upon, the ducts are sized

to ensure that the system behaves as desired, and the supply and return system

pressure losses are determined. Finally, with the total system losses tabulated, a

fan is selected. More detailed discussion for each of these steps in provided in

the following sections.

Diffuser Selection

After several iterations of diffuser number and size, 10 diffusers were

selected to supply air to the Library. The diffuser type was selected as Circular

Ceiling Diffusers. Sheet 7 of Appendix B shows the location of these 10

diffusers. They are each located in the Library overhead, in the center of a 20 ft

by 25 ft section of the building. Since there are 10 diffusers, the cfm per each

diffuser is 11,000 cfm / 10 diffusers = 1,100 cfm per diffuser.

The Room load is the system cooling load divided by the room floor area.

This is determined to be (341,775 Btu/hr) / (100 ft X 50 ft) = 68.4 Btu/hr-ft2. The

characteristic room length (L), per Ref. (1), Table 11-7, for Circular Ceiling

17

Diffusers is the distance to the closest wall or intersecting jet. Therefore, since

each diffuser is serving a 20 ft by 25 ft section, the characteristic room length is

taken to be between 10 -12.5 ft. From Ref. (1), Table 11-8, knowing the Room

load, the x50/L = 0.8 for maximum ADPI, and the x50/L can range from 0.7 to 1.3.

The x50 value is the length from the diffuser where the air velocity is 50

ft/min. And, the ADPI value is a value which when met by a particular diffuser

selected for an application, ensures that the occupants of the building do not feel

discomfort. A point where occupants feel discomfort can be defined by an

effective draft temperature. And, per Ref. (1), page 439, the ADPI is defined as

the percentage of measurements taken at many locations in the occupied zone

of a space that meet the effective draft criteria. By selecting a diffuser so that the

x50/L value falls in the defined range for the known Room load, it can be ensured

that the occupants do not feel uncomfortable.

Since maximum ADPI occurs at a value of x50/L = 0.8, x50 = 0.8(L), the x50

value is 0.8(12.5 ft) = 10. Also, a recommeded diffuser velocity of 400 ft/min was

stated in the COR. Therefore, from Ref. (1), Table 11-3, a 24" diffuser was

selected, with 1260 cfm @ 400 ft/min. This airflow rate is close to the design rate

of 1100 cfm. From Table 11-3, the Radius of Diffusion for 50 ft/min is 15 ft.

Therefore our actual x50/L = 15 ft / 12.5 ft = 1.2. This x50/L value falls in the range

provided in Table 11-8, and is acceptable. Therefore, 24" Circular Ceiling

Diffiusers are selected for the Library. Also, the Noise Criteria Index (NC) is

lower than the recommended noise level in a Library of NC = 35-40, as stated in

Ref. (1), Table 11-1. Per Table 11-3, the ∆Po for these diffusers is 0.024" w.g.

As stated in the COR, the recommended return air register velocity is 200

ft/min. After several iterations, ten return grills, each sized for 1,100 cfm were

chosen. From Table 11-6, each is chosen to be a 24" by 24" grill, with

characteristics: 1080 cfm, NC =20, and 300 ft/min. The return grill velocity is

above the recommended velocity in the COR, however this is considered to be

acceptable since the Noise Criteria value (NC = 20) is well below the levels

specified for Library applications. The ∆Ps for this grill is -0.033" w.g., and the

velocity pressure is 0.006. Therefore the ∆Po value determined for this grill is

found to be -0.033 + 0.006 = - 0.027" w.g. This value is stated as negative

because it is on the suction side of the supply fan, and therefore the pressure is

below atmospheric pressure.

Appendix B, Sheets 7 & 8, show the layout of the supply air duct system.

To determine the sizes of these ducts, in order to properly deliver 1,100 cfm to

each of the ten diffusers, the Balance Method was employed. For this method,

first the pressure drop through the longest run is determined (main duct run).

Then, the additional branches are sized so that their pressure drop is equivalent

to the pressure drop from the start of the particular branch to the end of the main

duct run. This ensures that the pressure drop is equal for every path the air can

18

travel through the system, which ensures the proper amount of air is delivered to

each diffuser.

To determine the pressure drops through each section, the Equivalent

Length Method was employed. This method determined the pressure drop

through selected duct sections, by calculating equivalent lengths for components

other than straight duct, to add to the length of straight duct. This allows a single

equivalent length (Le) value to be multiplied by ∆Po per 100 ft of duct value to

determine the branch pressure loss.

Table 13 shows the Equivalent Length calculations for the supply system

braches. Equivalent lengths for components other than straight duct are

determined using Ref. (1), Figures 12-25 and 12-26. It is not necessary to

include the diffuser pressure losses in each branch for sizing purposes, since

each branch has a diffuser of the same size and airflow rate. The section

designations in Table 13 correspond to the duct section labels as shown in

Appendix B, Sheet 8.

J-O 35' (Take-off branch) + 3' (duct) + 5' (45oelbow) + 10' (duct) 53'

The ducts were sized using these equivalent lengths for each branch.

Using a Figure similiar to Ref. (1), Figure 12-29, an iterative process was used to

determine the Pressure Drop per 100 ft, for each section. Iteration was

necessary to ensure that the duct velocities remain below the recommended

velocities. As stated in the COR, the recommeded maximum duct velocity is

1,000 ft/min. For the large ducts needed for the 11,000 cfm supply system, the

19

1,000 ft/min velocity limit kept the duct velocities well below velocities that are

characteristic of a low-velocity duct system. However, since the recommended

maximum duct velocity was considered to be important to avoid any noise

problems in the Library, it was adhered to. This resulted in low pressure drops

throughout the supply system. Table 14 shows the resulting supply system duct

sizes for the main run, and Table 15 shows the resulting supply system duct

sizes for the corresponding branches. These values were determined after much

iteration, and as shown in Tables 14 & 15, the system is balanced and the duct

velocities remain under the prescribed limit. Also, these Tables show the supply

system pressure drop calculated as 0.0804" w.g.

Return Air Ducting Layout/Sizing

The layout of the return air system is shown in Appendix B, Sheets 7 & 9.

The balance method was employed to determine the pressure drop through the

longest run (Section A-O, per Appendix B, Sheet 9), in similar fashion as the

supply air ducting. However, in this case, there is more than one "main run." As

can be seen on Sheet 9, sections A-O and A-J both have branches (i.e. the short

ducts leading to the return grills). Therefore in addition to the braches being

sized to match the pressure drop from their branch point to the end of the longest

run, both "main runs," A-O and A-J, must have equal pressure drop. This is true

because both sections originate from the same plenum.

The pressure drop through section A-O was calculated first, then section

A-J was sized to match the pressure drop through A-O. Once this was

accomplished, the branches to the other return grills were sized using the

balance method, for their corresponding "main run." Table 16 provides the

equivalent lengths of all runs in the return ducting, used in sizing calculations,

determined in a similar fashion as the supply ducting. The return grill pressure

drops are not included in the equivalent length calculations because each run

has an identical grill and airflow rate, and therefore, an identical pressure loss.

The section designations in Table 16 correspond to the duct section labels as

shown in Appendix B, Sheet 9.

Using the Equivalent Length Method to calculate the pressure drop

through each path that the return air can travel, with the equivalent lenghts

provided in Table 17, the pressure drop through section A-O was calculated after

iteration, and is provided in Table 17. Also Table 17 provides the pressure drop

calculations for the other "main run," section A-J. And, as can be seen, the

pressure drop through both runs is the same. Therefore, since they are both

connected to the same plenum, on the suction side of the fan, equal quantities of

air should travel through them, namely 5,500 cfm in each run. As depicted in

Table 17, slightly smaller duct sizes were used in section A-J, to provide

additional pressure drop to equalize with section A-O (section A-O has an

additional sizty feet of equivalent duct length).

Once the two "main runs" were sized, the respective braches were sized,

using the Balance Method, to ensure that approximately 1,100 cfm enters each

return grill. As shown in Table 18, the branches from section A-O, and the

branches from section A-J are sized so that their pressure drop matches the

pressure drop of the duct run that begins at the respective branch point to the

end to the respective longest run. The duct sizes, selected for each branch,

provide the necessary pressure drop, so that the return system is balanced.

Based on the calculations in Tables 17 and 18, after much iteration, the return

22

system is considered balanced. The pressure drop, through the return system,

not including the pressure drop through the grill, was calculated as - 0.0876" w.g.

Fan Selection

To select a fan for the Library HVAC system, the total system pressure

drop must be determined. This is done by summing absolute value of all the

individual pressure drops calculated previously. Also, assumed pressure drops

for the cooling coil and filters are neccessary. As stated in previous sections and

Tables, the supply system pressure drop is 0.0804" w.g., the diffuser pressure

drop is 0.0240" w.g., the return system pressure drop is -0.0876" w.g., and the

return grill pressure drop is -0.0270" w.g. The cooling coil pressure drop is

assumed to be 0.2500" w.g., and the pressure drop due to various filters in the

system is assumed to be 0.1500" w.g. Plenum losses before and after the fan

are included in the supply and return system pressure drop calculations. In order

to ensure the fan is capable of delivering air through the duct system, a margin of

15% in pressure drop is added to account for any additional losses overlooked,

as well as degradation of the duct system over time from fouling. Table 19

shows a tabulation of system pressure losses, and a total ∆Po for fan selection

purposes. As can be seen in Table 19, the total pressure drop does not exceed

23

the 4.0" w.g. maximum per the COR, and the relatively low total pressure drop is

assumed to be due to the relatively stringent duct velocity restrictions.

into static pressure. To do this the velocity pressures before and after the fan

must be determined. Figure 1 depicts where the velocity pressures must be

area is 5.582 ft2 , and the fan outlet area is 3.3 ft2. With the design airflow rate of

11,000 cfm, the inlet and outlet velocities are determined as 11,000/5.582 =

24

1,971 ft/min, and 11,000/3.3 = 3,333 ft/min. Therefore the total pressure drop

can be translated into a static pressure delta as follows:

3,333 2 1,971 2

∆Ps = 0.7119 − −

4005 4005

Therefore, the static pressure delta is 0.2615" w.g. As can be seen in the

Appendix D vendor data, A SWB-24 model fan operating at 1,281 rpm, with a

max BHP of 5.011, provides 10,813 cfm at a static pressure of 0.2500" w.g. This

centrifugal fan is ideally suited for this library application. It should also be noted

that an exhaust fan rated at 1,500 cfm is required to vent a portion of the return

air to the outside, in order to allow the air distribution system to intake 1,500 cfm

of fresh air to meet the Library fresh air requirements.

SUMMARY:

Using the methods outlined in the ME 260 HVAC course, Spring Semester

1999, a preliminary HVAC system design was performed for a Library to be

located in Dallas, Texas. The heating and cooling systems were designed, and

the air-distribution system, based on the cooling system airflow requirements was

also designed. Appropriate equipment components, such as a pre-heater,

furnace, humidifier, cooling and dehumidification unit, reciprocating compressor

chiller unit, and fan were sized and selected. No cost analysis was performed,

however this report can be used as a basis for future cost analyses if necessary.
