UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY
BAE / ME 580 Heating, Ventilating and Air-Conditioning
A course emphasizing the use of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer principles in the engineering systems aspects of thermal environmental design. Principles and applications of building energy requirements and thermal comfort criteria. Prereq: ME 321 Thermodynamics II, or BAE 427 Environmental Housing, or consent of instructor.
Course Goals: The goals of this class are to:
At the completion of this course the students should:
- Have a working knowledge of basic HVAC terminology, systems and design processes.
- Be able to compute basic heating and cooling loads and component energy consumption using fundamental heat and mass balances on buildings and system components.
- Be familiar with industry standard methodologies for calculating building heating/cooling loads, and ventilation and building energy design requirements
- Be able to write a concise summary of a specific area of HVAC systems and present the findings to peers.
