Handbook of Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning, Eighth Edition, contains in a readily available form the data, charts, and tables which are required by the heating engineer during his daily work. The data is presented in a concise manner in order to facilitate the work of the heating and ventilating engineer. The handbook is organized into 17 sections covering the following topics: abbreviations, symbols and conversions; standards for materials; combustion; heat and thermal properties of materials; properties of steam and air; heat losses; cooling loads; heating systems; steam systems; domestic services; ventilation; air conditioning; pumps and fans; sound; and labor rates. The final sections contain a bibliography for readers who require more theoretical treatment of the topics on which data is presented in this book, and a list of British Standards relevant to heating, ventilating, and air conditioning based on information available in May 1980. The book is designed for daily use and a comprehensive bibliography has been included for the benefit of those who wish to pursue the theoretical side of any particular branch.
