Book Description

The latest edition of the classic book grounded in the fundamentals. It introduces heating, ventilation, and air conditioning starting with basic principles of engineering leading to the latest HVAC design practice. Its engineering approach emphasizes fundamentals and realistic applications. Acknowledging numerous approaches to all engineering problems, the book presents alternate approaches and describes why some approaches work best in specific applications and what compromises are made using each of them. Provides carefully worked examples with step-by-step solutions listing assumptions, reference equations, and supporting material. Incorporates a careful use of easy-to-follow units and conversion factors providing basic mass and energy balances. The third edition of Thermal Environmental Engineering has been updated to reflect current approaches as well as new chapters on energy estimation, air handling system design, and piping system design. Discusses new replacement refrigerants as well as environmental issues. Presents single and multiple zone psychronetric systems; moisture transport in building structures; and the latest topics on indoor air quality and human comfort. An essential reference book for professional mechanical engineers.

2Good book and great for reference material
By heyhauler390
Good book and great for reference material, however there are several errata in the text. There is some corrections that are published but not all. Therefore in some more complex calculations you have to cross reference with multiple other sources to ensure accuracy. In addition DO NOT RENT THE SOFTCOVER. The binding is not that great and the softcover tears easily. Within days, there were pages falling out and the cover is torn. I used it for one semester and there is not way they are going to accept this as a return and I am going to have to buy the book outright.
Bottom Line: Content is great, binding and softcover are not

5Hard cover rocks
By Richard Oliphant
Loved the hard cover. Classmates had purchased the soft cover book mostly and they were falling apart by the end of the semester. The books that is. But yes also the students.
