• The present investigation indicated that the radiant cooling system improves the human comfort (100% fresh air is used).
• The results obtained in this study demonstrate that the ceiling radiant cooling panel system creates uniform temperature distribution inside the conditioned space. Moreover, the predicted inside walls surface temperatures and temperatures of perpendicular walls of inside air are shown to be in reasonable agreement with those measured as indicated in the experimental results.
• The current study showed that the ceiling radiant cooling panel system improves indoor air quality (low noise and minimum supply air are used when compared with conventional cooling system)
• Electrical services reduction for the mechanical equipment can be achieved due to smaller chiller, fans and pumps.

How to establish low energy allowances for delivering thermal comfort and indoor air quality in modern buildings
This three day hybrid course explores the design principles in energy and exergy efficient indoor environmental quality focusing on integrating architectural, interior design and radiant based HVAC system solutions. The core content based on theory and practical applications will revolve around the health, building and HVAC sciences including a study in thermal comfort and indoor air quality, cold climate enclosures, heat transfer, hydronic cooling and heating systems including a detailed study in fluid fundamentals and the hydraulics of hydronics, control valves and balancing, heat terminal units including fan coils, radiant cooling and heating and dedicated outdoor air systems.
This course is for today’s working design practitioner who may be a recent graduate from an architectural, mechanical engineering or interior design program and those from the distribution and contracting professions who already hold design certifications from various institutes and associations.
Experienced professionals who may want to expand their knowledge base on IEQ, controls, radiant heating & cooling, fluid hydraulics and snow melting will also benefit from the program.
Course fee includes 21 hours of instruction, 500 page bound course curriculum with all the slides, formatted 4 per page on 11x17 landscape, industry software and handbooks
