Air conditioning systems can be categorized according to the means by which the controllable cooling is accomplished in the conditioned space. The design of air distribution system must combine a proper choice of engineered products efficiently providing conditioned air to the space while low on energy consumption and with the ability to provide individual control.
This 4-hr course discusses the HVAC air distribution system with focus on Variable Air Volume (VAV) systems. The course is entirely based on US Corps of Engineers Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (USACERL) technical report 99:20, May 1999. This course lists the Appendix A of the report and other appendices have been separately listed.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
