Air Conditioning System Design summarizes essential theory and then explains how the latest air conditioning technology operates. Load calculations, energy efficiency, and selection of technology are all explained in the context of air conditioning as a system, helping the reader fully consider the implications of design decisions.
Whether users need to figure out how to apply their mechanical engineering degree to an air conditioning design task or simply want to find out more about air conditioning technology for a research project, this book provides a perfect guide.
- Approaches air conditioning as a system, not just a collection of machines
- Covers the essential theory on fluid flow and the latest in A/C technology in a very readable and easy-to-use style
- Explains the significance of factors, such as climate and thermal comfort as A/C design considerations
- Addresses design using a range of air conditioning technologies, such as evaporative cooling, VRF systems, psychromatic software, and dessicant dehumidification

Roger Colby Legg spent 10 years as a design engineer, and then five years as a research engineer with the Hospital Engineering Research Unit, at Glasgow University. Roger lectured at the Institute of Environmental Engineering, South Bank University, London, for almost 30 years. He was awarded a PhD from the University of Strathclyde for his work on control dampers. Since his retirement he has spent much of his time working as a volunteer with refugees and asylum seekers in the London Borough of Bromley.
