International Series of Monographs in Heating, Ventilation, and Refrigeration, Volume 4: The Control of Indoor Climate focuses on the many problems in heating, cooling, and ventilation.

The publication first underscores the need for the control of indoor climate, instrumentation and standards of thermal comfort, and the physiological implications of personal warming, cooling, and ventilation. Discussions focus on stresses and strain of excessive heat, measurements of great and overpowering thermal stress, physiological effects of domestic work under heat stress, equivalent and effective temperatures, comfort zones, effective temperature, and the heat output of normal man. The text then elaborates on designing for the warming of buildings, nature of heat for comfort and its production, and ventilation. Topics include industrial and special ventilation, methods of ventilating dwellings, central heating, domestic heating by forced-convected air, traditional open fire and its modern modifications, practices in domestic warming, adjustment of heating capacity to local climate, and heat leakage from buildings. The manuscript takes a look at tropical housing and living conditions and the effects of excessive indoor heat in temperate climates and its control.

The publication is a dependable reference for engineers and architects.
