Manual D, 3rd Edition (D3) -- Residential Duct Systems, 2008


A thorough understanding of the D3 manual as well as a working knowledge of Microsoft
Excel are prerequisites for using this spreadsheet.
This spreadsheet uses revised versions of the printed D3 worksheets.
Use the printed D3 manual for guidance to enter information into the Effective Length,
Friction Rate and Duct Sizing tabs.
Microsoft Excel version 97 is the minimum requirement to use the spreadsheet but Microsoft
Excel version 2000 or greater is recommended to utilize the full features of the spreadsheet.
We strongly suggest that you print out and read the instructions on using this electronic spreadsheet
that are contained in the following Help tab.

*** Refer to the Notes Tab to verify the latest revision ***
Help Section
Refer to Manual D Residential Duct Systems, Third Edition Version 1.xx
Go to the Effective Length Tab and enter up to 4 supply runs to determine the longest equivilent run in the system.
Step 1:
Enter the linear feet of trunk and runout ducts in the length sections for the supply ducts.
Click on the Group Code and find the equivilent length for all fittings used in the selected supply runs.
You can list multiple Group Code letters separated by a comma and enter the total effective length for all fittings.
The program will automatically select the "Total Equivilent Feet" to be used in the Friction Rate Tab.
Repeat the steps above for the return ducts.
Step 2:

Go to the Friction Rate Tab and enter the "External Static Pressure" for the selected equipment.
Enter the "Heating CFM" and "Fan Speed / "Cooling CFM" and "Fan Speed".
Next enter "Component Pressure Losses" for all components and accesories external of the fan unit.
The program will automatically calculate the "Design Friction Rate" value to be used for Duct Sizing.

Step 2:

Go to the Duct Sizing Tab and enter the heating and cooling BTUH for each supply run.
There is a maximum of 20 supply runs per unit.
For larger rooms divide the BTUH by the number of runs required for proper distribution of airflow.
The program will automatically select the duct size for round metal ductwork.
For rectangular metal ductwork enter the height and the program will automatically select the duct size.
If Flex Duct is used refer to the Equivilent Flex column to select the correct duct size.
Under the supply trunk, return run and return trunk sections, select the associated supply runs and the
CFM and duct sizes will automatically calculate.
The program will automatically select the duct size for round metal ductwork.
For rectangular metal ductwork enter the height and the program will automatically select the duct size.
If Flex Duct is used refer to the Equivilent Flex column to select the correct duct size.
