# CIV 1298 HVAC PRINCIPLES

COURSE OUTLINE COURSE: INSTRUCTOR: DATES: CIV1298H HVAC Principles Thomas Simko, Ph.D., P.Eng. Thomas.Simko@utoronto.ca Six-hour sessions over five Saturdays 9am 3:30 pm February 9 and 23, March 2, 9 and 16. A two-and-a-half hour exam during the last session McQuiston, F., Parker, J, Spitler, J. Heating Ventilating, and Air Conditioning, th 6 Ed., John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2005.

REQUIRED TEXT:

BRIEF COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course deals with the interrelationship of building envelopes and environmental control with an emphasis on sustainable building practices. The course examines thermal comfort and indoor air quality, heating, cooling and moisture regulation, air distribution and pressure regimes, energy usage, solar and internal gains, natural and hybrid ventilation, and the calculation of cooling and heating loads. More responsible building practices are identified and illustrated throughout.

LEARNER OUTCOMES: Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to: Understand the basic layouts and pros and cons of common HVAC systems. Calculate energy requirements by applying psychrometric theory to basic and advanced air conditioning processes. Psychrometric charts will be used to assist with visualizing the processes. Understand the comfort implications of indoor air quality, the common contaminants that affect IAQ and how they are controlled. Calculate the air infiltration/exfiltration due to wind and the stack effect with the crack method as applied to walls, windows and doors. Understand several solar energy concepts and the solar heat gain coefficient and its influence on the building cooling load. Calculate the cooling and heating loads for buildings. Follow new developments in HVAC, notably dedicated outdoor air systems and advanced heat recovery systems.
