(2-1)Air Conditioning Analysis

Air conditioning system is designed to control the environment of occupied

spaces, so the thermal comfort approached by occupants. So, according to seasonal

variation of weather, air conditioning system has to cope with heating and cooling

loads to achieve comfort ability.

By conduction, convection and radiation sensible heat transmitted out of the

building in winter, and transmitted to the building in summer, and by the same way;

moisture can be transmitted in and out of the building, sensible and latent heat can be

produced within the building according to occupant’s activity, lighting and machines

also.

The first step before any design process for any air conditioning system;

engineers must carefully determine the amount of heat removal needed in summer

season and the amount of heat to be produced in winter season . Before an air

conditioning system can be designed, all these loads must be analyzed and summed

up together with great care in order to select the most suitable equipment for the

building systems.

(2-3)Design Conditions and Desired Indoor Conditions

Inside and Outside Design Condition:

Inside design factors such as the following must be considered:

Type and use of building

Length or duration of occupancy

Degree of activity of occupants

Radiant heat source such as large lighting load or glass exposure.

Outside design conditions and daily peak temperatures.

Outside design conditions vary markedly with the locality. They are

determined by averaging conditions, which occur over a number of years.

For preparing any load calculation or in evaluating the equipment

requirements, it is recommended to take into consideration the following

points:-

1- The desired inside design conditions are largely dependent on the load

components and on the use and occupancy of the building.

2- The most comfort applications, exact maintenance of space conditions is not

required if the system can limit the variation to acceptable tolerances.

3- Seldom do loads peak simultaneously in building.

4- Off peak or partial load conditions may and frequently do produce more

problems than the peak conditions. A successful system cannot be designed

solely for a single set of load conditions.

5- Economic operation of the system is to a large extent dependent upon the

analysis of the load variation, kind of building, and building use.

12

(2-3-1)Design Conditions

I. Outdoor Design Conditions:

The building is located at Ramallah so the design conditions related to

(Palestinian Guidelines for energy efficient building design) are as follows:

a. winter (heating):

Tdb = 2 oC

Ф=50%

b. Summer (cooling):

Tdb = 35 oC

Twb = 24 oC

And also no humidity adjustment is needed

Ф=60%

Where:

Tdb: the dry bulb temperature at Ramallah

Twb: the wet bulb temperature at Ramallah

Ф: the relative humidity

The recommended design conditions for Office Buildings refer to (Palestinian

Guidelines for energy efficient building design) were:-

a. In winter (heating):

Tdb= 230C. (For patient room)

0

Tdb= 21 C. (For CCU room)

Φ = 50%.

b. In summer (cooling)

Tdb= 230C. (For patient room)

Tdb= 210C. (For Corridors)

Φ = 50%.

13

(2-4) Cooling Load

Cooling load calculations deal with two types of heat gain:-

a. Sensible Heat: heat that flows into or produced in a space will tend to

cause a temperature rise in the space.

b. Latent Heat: in the form of moisture which although it does not cause a

temperature rise does change the condition of the air in the space resulting in a

higher relative humidity.

a)Sensible heat gains to the space include:

a1. Heat transmission through the building structure as a result of

conduction, convection and radiation.

a2. Sensible heat brought in with the outside air, which is introduced, for

ventilation.

a3. Sensible heat produced by occupants.

a4. Sensible heat produced in the space by lights, appliances, motors and

the like.

a5. Sensible heat to be extracted from materials or products brought into the

space, (industrial air taming).

b)Latent heat (moisture) gain may be classified as follows:

b1. Latent heat from outside air ;( both that introduced for ventilation and

that which infiltrates into the space).

b2. Latent heat from occupants.

b3. Latent heat from cooling, hot baths or other vaporization processes in the

space.

b4. Latent heat from products or materials brought into the space

b5. Latent heat from equipment.

(2-4-1)Cooling Load Calculations

The following features concern the Office building that we are going to

calculate the cooling load for:

Design Conditions:

Outdoors design conditions:

Tdb=35 0C.

Twb = 240C.

WO= 0.014

Indoors design conditions:

Tdb= 230C. (For patient room)

Tdb= 210C. (For CCU room)

WI=0.0085

(2-4-2) Transmission Load

A-External Walls:

By using the general heat transfer equation which is:

Where:

Q =Heat transmitted. (Watts).

U =Overall heat transfer coefficient (W/m2.K).

A=Area of exposed surface (m2).

T=Temperature difference (To-Ti).

But since all external walls in this building were exposed to the sun, so no

need to this equation and instead using solar load equation which is described in the

next section.

B-Internal Walls:

By using the general heat transfer equation (2-2)as the external walls, by

noticing that T was equal to one or two degrees Celsius because of using the

different temperatures for the offices, corridor and WC’s.

C-Windows:

There are two type of heat gain through the windows which are by conduction

and by solar; all windows were assumed to be made of single clear glass.

1) Heat gain by conduction:

From equation (2-2)

2) Heat gain by solar

Where:

SC: Shading coefficient

CLF: Cooling load factor for glass

SHGF: Solar heat gain factor for sunlit glass (W/m2)

U: overall heat transfer coefficient (W/m2.K)

16

D- Doors:

The external door was assumed to be made of single glass, so it was treated as

windows. The Internal doors were made from wood.

E- Roofs:

Transmission load through the roof will be calculated by the solar load for the

third (last) floor, while the roof for the other internal floors will not transmit heat

since the floors are cooled, so there is no temperature difference just CCU room.

F- Floors:

Since the Office Building structure contains three floors, the first floor will

transmit heat from the ground because it was assumed to be 12 0C.

(2-4-3) Solar Load

(a) Solar load through external walls and roof were calculated by using the following

equation[R]:-

q UA(CLTD) adj (2 – 4)[2]

Where:

U= Overall heat transfer coefficient (w/m2.oC).

A= Area of the roof.

CLTD=cooling load temperature difference. (From Appendix A).

Where:

Ti = inside design dry-bulb temperature (oC).

Tav = Average outdoor dry-bulb temperature for design day, (oC).

(From appendix A)

CLTD = 12 (Roof with suspended ceiling at 1 Pm).

(CLTD) adj = 12 + (25-23) + (30-30)

CLTD=14

(b) Solar load through windows and external doors were calculated by using the Heat

gain by solar by equation (2-3)

Qsolar heat gain= 𝐴 𝑆𝐶 𝐶𝐿𝐹 𝑆𝐻𝐺𝐹 + 𝑈𝐴∆𝑇

17

(2-4-4) Internal Load

a- Lights:

For lamps and using the following equation[2]:

q LampsRating f u f b CLF (2 – 6)

Where:

b- Occupants:

For persons where people are doing office works, waking and standing; and

utilizing (Appendix A)

Where:-

a- Occupants:

From (Appendix A), latent load for standing persons [2].

(2-4-5)Infiltration and ventilation Load

Sensible infiltration was calculated for the building by the following equation

qS= 1.23𝑉 ∆𝑇 (2-9) [2]

Where

𝑉=

qL=3000𝑥𝑉𝑥∆𝜔 (2-10)[2]

Where

ω: Humidity ratio, (kg moisture /kg dry air )from psychometric chart.

*Ventilation load is considered as coil load not as room load because this load will be

covered on coil.

*The previous equations are used in cooling load calculation and the final results are

tabulated below with sample calculation for (ground floor-doctor exam room 1) and

Where:

Tdb: is the dry bulb temperature.

Twb: is the wet bulb temperature.

Indoor Design Conditions:

Tdb = 23 oC

Φ = 50%

Special Considerations:

For hospital it’s accepted to use 50% mass as fresh air, and 50% mass recalculated.

25

For central cooling:

Coil Temperature is 13 oC

Fan Effect +1 oC

Duct Effect +2 oC

Supply Temperature = 16 oC

Return Temperature = 23 oC

From Psychometric Chart

At Point B (represents Fan effect on temperature rise

TB = TW +1

TB = 13 + 1 = 14 0C

h b = 37 kJ/kg

By Locating W, B. we can find Point M (which represents mixing point conditions) at

the Psychometric Chart.

Mixing state can be obtained by mean conservation of mass:

m a x hm = ( m r x hr) + ( m o x ho) (2 – 11)

But:

m r = 0.5 m a

m o = 0.5 m a

Where:

m r = mass flow rate of air recalculated [kg/s].

m o = mass flow rate of fresh air [kg/s].

hm = (0.5 m a x hr + 0.5 m a x ho) / m a

By eliminating m a :

hm = 0.5 hr + 0.5 ho = 58.26 kJ/kg

Tm = 28.88 oC

(2-6-3)Heating Coil Calculations

As we are using central heating by a boiler we must find out the heating coil

capacity to ensure that the machine will meet the load we want, and by following a

similar steps as in cooling coil calculation we are going to find the heating coil

capacity:

will be based on sensible heating load.

Sensible cooling load (Qs) = 72594 W.

Outdoor Design Conditions:

Tdb = 2 oC

Where Tdb: is the dry bulb temperature.

Indoor Design Conditions:

Φ = 30%

Special Consideration:

For office buildings it’s accepted to use 20% mass as fresh air, and 80% mass

recalculated.

29

Since cooling load is always larger than heating load, duct design is calculated based

on the total air flow of the cooling season; this requires that the flow rate in the

heating season should be unchanged.

The supply temperature is calculated based on the sensible load obtained previously

m o = 0.5 m a

where:

m r = mass flow rate of air recalculated [kg/s].

m o = mass flow rate of fresh air [kg/s].

(2-7)Equipment Selection

(2-7-1)Chiller Selection:

We selected an AIR-COOLED SCREW COMPRESSOR LIQUID

CHILLER Module and the selection was based on the Carrier Products Catalogue,

the following data was obtained.

1. The chiller used was selected to be an Air-Cooled because it can handle the

large load we had.

2. 30 GX series

3. The load required for the cooling coil was found to be 297kW

32

(2-7-2)Air Handling Unit selection (AHU):

The air-handling unit is equipment with a fan, cooling coil, air filter, motor

assembly, comprising shaft, bearings, pulley... etc.

The basic function of the AHU is to suck air from the rooms, let it pass through

chilled water cooling coils (or hot water heating coils) and then discharging the

cooled air (or heating air) back to the rooms. Normally, letting it pass through panel

or bag filters also filters the air. A certain amount of fresh air may be introduced at the

suction duct so that air in the rooms may be gradually replaced.

AHU's come in many sizes and shapes. Usually, the air conditioning designer will

choose a particular AHU based on the air flow requirements and the cooling

capacity.

and the selection was based on the Carrier Products Catalogue, the following data

was obtained.

Heating and cooling coils mounted on slide tracks for easy removal.

33

(2-7-3)Boiler selection:

1. The boiler required to cover the load is selected from the CHAPPEE NXR 3,

this type belong to the new range of cast iron sectional boilers. It has been

designed to operate on oil or gas fuel.

3. The selections based on total Heating Coils Load with a safety factor of 5 %,

so from the boiler catalog MODEL, NXR 3-39 with a range capacity (250-

290) kW was selected, so it covered our load which are 283 kW

4. Technical data :

Number of sections = 9

Weight = 1000 Kg

Efficiency = 93 %

34

(2-7-4)Chimney Selection:

Rockwool protected by sheet metal.

Exhaust fans will be used as a mechanical ventilation device for the WC’s in

the building. The return duct of them is shown in the duct design section. We should

notice here that there were some important considerations used to select the suitable

fans for this duty.

The exhaust fans have a minimum static pressure of 800 Pa; (according to the

exhaust fan catalogue) they were from the WC return ducts in each floor and the

main return ducts which are in the utility shaft.

The total air flow of the fan in the right side =1500 CFM = 0.7 m3/s

The total air flow of the fan in the left side =9000 CFM = 4.2 m3/s

The exhausted flow rate is more than the calculated to maintain a negative pressure

in the WC’s, this to avoid any bad air quality exfiltrated to the corridor.

So we selected two exhaust fans which are Roof Crub Mounted (shown in

detailed drawings)

35

(2-7-6) Pumps Selection

Pump Efficiency:

pumping power. Pump efficiency commonly vary from 50% to 80% depending on the

application. Individual pump physical characteristics determine if pump is best suited

for a specific application. Great care should be given to match a pump with its

application. Refer to manufacture’s published data to determine which pump is best

for the desired application.

Pump Construction:

casing. In order to accommodate differing system and mediums, pump construction

must be altered. Most hydraulic systems employ cast iron construction. Domestic

water should have all bronze construction. Bronze fitted may also be used on

domestic systems to save cost. Applications where extreme duty is expected may

employ stainless steel construction.

In order to select any pump, two main properties should be taken into

consideration:

1. Total Head loss which is the sum of all pressure drops across equipments and the

head loss due to friction.

2. The flow rate, which calculated previously in the coil load calculations.

Pump must re-circulated chilled water for all AHUs in different elevations

A pipe line connect chilled water to the main collector in boiler room, then

pump circulate water

ΔZ = Vertical length in m. (ΔZ =0 here according to Bernoulli equation)

hf = ƒ L V2/ 2 D g (2-14)

Where:

ƒ = friction factor

L = pipe length

V2 = square of water velocity m2/s2

ρ = is the density of water (kg/ m3)

D = is the inner diameter of the pipe (m)

(2-8)Solar heating system

We saw that, for hospital, the average daily consumption of hot water is,

136.4 l/Person. Day

from (1999 ASHRAE hand book, HVAC Applications, Chapter 48)

(Table – 7; hot water demands and use for various types of buildings):

The daily hot water demand is given by

Average personal demand × Number of persons

For 100 occupants,

136.4 × 100 = 13640 liter/ day

The building heat load varies during the year, depending on the temperature outside

and the building will be under service all over the year seasons,

The calculation must be based on the following equation

Q = m × Cp × ΔT (2-17)

Where:

m = hot water flow rate (Kg/s)

ΔT = Temperature difference between required Temp. Hot water supply & inlet water

Temperature of the collector (o C)

Cp = specific heat of water (kJ/kg. K) = 4.197

Q = heat load of the system (kW)

The mass flow rate of water is calculated by the following equation:

m =ρ×V

Where:

ρ = water density (kg/m3)

V = Volume flow rate of hot water (m3/s)

m = hot water flow rate (kg/s)

42

For 16 hour operation per day

m = (1000×13.64)/ (16 × 3600) = 0.236 kg/sec.

We noticed that May has the lowest ambient temperature which will be our design

temperature for cold water supply.

Tin = 22.6 o C

Tout = 60 o C

Where our design temperature for hot water usage = 60 o C for hospitals (1999

ASHRAE hand book, HVAC Applications, Chapter 48),

Q = 0.236 × 4.197 × (60 – 22.6)

51.9 kW without heat losses.

A- 3/4" main supply with total length = 60 m.

B- 1/2" supply branches of total length = 10 m.

Pipes system insulated using VEEDO FLEX insulator with low thermal conductivity;

K = 0.027 W/m.K

Total pipe length = 60+ 10 = 70m

From (1999 ASHRAE Handbook, HVAC Applications, and Chapter 48):

Heat losses in insulated Piping System = 30 W/ m.

Pipe losses = (70 × 30)/1000 = 2.1 kW

Q tot = heat load + piping losses

Q tot = 51.9+ 2.1= 54 kW

43

(2-9)Solar System Design

To find the useful heat from the collectors based on the efficiency equation of

"AMCOR COMPANY" data:

The effective absorber area for (AM80- single glazing collector) = 1.32 m2.

Where:

T m = is the mean water temperature of the collector (Tm=47.5 C).

T a = is the ambient temperature of the collector (Ta =Tavg).

I = is the total solar insulation on the tilted collector (kcal/ m2 day).

For various ambient and insulation; efficiency will vary depending on these

variables as seen from the listed table:

Tavg. Hot water Energy/day Solar Solar Energy ηcol(%) Ecol.use

(ºC) (Qneeded) (kJ/day) Energy(kJ/m2) (kcal/m^2.day) kJ/m2 .day

22.6 54.00 3110502.6 24840 5932.9 67.4 16744

25.8 50.83 2927935.1 24120 5761.0 68.7 16570

27.4 49.25 2836651.3 24120 5761.0 69.5 16771

28.3 48.36 2785304.2 25920 6190.9 70.7 18324

Collectors must be oriented to the southern face.

From the table above we see that collector efficiency at May:

η col = 67.4 %

The useful heat get from the collector given by the following equation:

E col .use = η col * I

Where:

44

η col : collector efficiency.

I: is the total solar insolation on the tilted collector (kJ/ m2 day).

E col .use: useful heat (KJ/m2 day).

In May:

E col .use = 0.674× 24840 = 16744(kJ/m2 day).

Collectors area could be found by dividing the total heat by the useful from

the collector;

A = Q tot / E col .use

At May:

A = (54×3600×16)/16744= 185.8 m2

Number of collectors needed = A/1.32

Collector area must be large enough to cover the load without the aid of

auxiliary system in the sunny days, but the optimum collector's area must meet the

economical requirements.

Knowing the collector area and the unit price, the collector cost could be found.

C col,(tot) = FCR x Investment + maintenance. (2-19)

Where:

FCR = i + [i /{1 + i )n – 1}] + t + j

Where:

i = interest rate in Palestine = 10%

45

n = is the number of expected serving years of the system = 20 years.

t = annual taxes = 0

j = annual insurance = 0.3 %

This cost is calculated for different values of collector's area as shown below,

Then these values plotted against collector's area.

The break even point could be obtained from the figures and it shows the optimum

collectors area and its cost. Above this point the addition of solar collectors will

not be justified economically. As the collectors solar energy is more expensive

than fuel cost.

From the figure below break even point gives us

130 collectors.(LPG as auxiliary heater).

With annual heating cost = 2324$/year

And the total collectors produced energy = 2024945KJ / day

(2-9-3)Storage tank selection

The daily hot water demand is given by

Average personal demand x Number of persons

For 100 occupants,

136.4 × 100 = 13640 l/ day

It is recommended by the designer to design the volume of storage tank assuming

that 70% of hot water in the tank is usable;

storage tank capacity =

(13640)/0.7 = 19486 L

Storage tank capacity = 19.5 m3

To satisfy this volume choose four tank at the same volume

Vone tank=19.5/4= 5 m3

Assume that L = 3D = 6r

Where:

L = the length of storage tank. (m)

D = storage tank base diameter (m)

r = storage tank base diameter (m)

V = r2 × π ×L (2-20)

V=6πr3

Where:

V = storage tank Volume (m3)

r = (V/6π)1/3

r = 0.64 m

D = 1.28m

L = 3.82m

Storage tank surfaces area:

Storage tank bottom and top area = 2× r2 × π = 2.55 m2

Storage tank side surface area = 2 r × π× L = 12 π r2 = 15.3m2

Storage tank total surface area = 2.55 + 15.3 = 17.85m2

Storage tank insulation:

47

From (1996 ASHRAE Handbook, HVAC Systems and Equipment,

Chapter 33).

We can determine the vertical tank insulation factor (w/m2) (ƒQ/AӨ)

1 fQ 1

(2-21)

R A (t avg t a )

Where:-

R: thermal resistivity of insulation, m2· K / W.

f : specified fraction of stored energy that can be lost in time θ

Q: stored energy, J

A: exposed surface area of storage unit, m2

θ : given time period, s

tavg: average temperature in storage unit, °C

ta : ambient temperature surrounding storage unit during season when it will be

heated, °C

(ƒQ/AӨ) = 15.36

t avg = 60 °C

t a = 22.6 °C

1/R = 0.293 (W/ m2· K)

R = 3.41 (m2· K/W)

But R = L/K

Where:

L = insulation thickness (m).

K = thermal conductivity (W/m.k)

For extruded polystyrene as insulator;

K = 0.028 (w/m.K)

L = K x R = 0.028 × 3.41= 0.0955 m = 9.5Cm.

U = thermal transmittance (w/ m2· K) = 1/R

U(insulation) = 0.293 (W/ m2· K)

(2-9-4)Solar Boiler selection

Boiler Capacity(kJ /day) Capacity(kW)

Gas 2516051.3 54

In the previous section the number of collectors was found and so the quantity of

energy produced by the collectors.

Now assuming that there is no solar energy system under service, and the load of

coldest month must be covered by the conventional system then the load on the boiler

will be as follows

As the maximum load reach to = 54 kW, since there are 13 hours /day for solar

radiation.

Assuming that gas boiler efficiency = 0.9

Boiler capacity = 54/ η boiler = 65.8kW

Boiler needed is “Heat master- model 60N”

Gas fired boiler with capacity reach to 69.9kW

Determination of auxiliary load and fuel consumption is as follows:

Q auxiliary = Q load avg – Q useful (2-22)

Where:

Q auxiliary = is the heat supplied by the auxiliary heater (Boiler) (kJ / day)

Q load AVG = is the yearly average of the total heat load.

Q useful = is the useful heat from the collector.

The average useful heat in (KJ/day) from the collector was calculated as follows:

Q useful = A × η avg × Ecol.use avg (2-23)

Where:

A = area of collectors

η avg = yearly average efficiency of the collectors

Ecol.use avg =Yearly average useful heat from the collector

Q auxiliary = 2915098 – 2024945.2= 890152.8 kJ / day

49

m fuel = Q auxiliary /( H.Vgas × ŋburning) (2-24)

Where:

m fuel = fuel mass flow rate ( kg/ day)

H.V of gas = 50000 kJ/kg K

Burning efficiency in selected boiler = 0.9

m fuel = 890152.8 / (50000×0.9) = 19.8 kg/day

(2-9-5)Solar Pump Selection:

Selecting a specific pump needs two basic parameters, the flow rate that the pump

should operate at, and the head of the pump.

The selected flow rate should overcome heat load and heat losses flow rate,

Q total = m × Cp × ΔT (2-25)

Cp = specific heat for water kJ/kg.K = (4.197)

ΔT = Temperature difference between required Temp hot water supply & inlet water

Temperature of the collector (o C)

m = water mass flow rate in kg / sec

m = Q total / Cp × ΔT

m = 54 / (4.197 ×(75- 22,6)) = 0.244 kg / sec

The second step is to determine the head required by the pump to over come.

At the beginning we have to calculate the velocity in all sizes of the pipes which are:

3/4" and 1/2"

It can be calculated from the following equation:

V = m / (ρ × A) (2-26)

Where:

m = is water mass flow rate (kg / sec)

ρ = is the density of water (kg / m3).

A = is the pipe cross sectional area (m2)

50

Then we have to find the friction factor from moody chart for commercial steel pipes.

Roughness constant for commercial steel "Є" = 0.046

D = 3/4" = 0.01905 m

D = 1/2" = 0.0127 m

Reynolds number = 4 m / (π D μ)

Where:

m = water mass flow rate in (kg/s)

D = pipe diameter (m).

μ = the viscosity of water (N.s/m2) = 489 × 10-6

ƒ = friction factor

ƒ; obtained from moody chart if flow is turbulent.

If the flow is laminar:

ƒ = 64 / Re

We can get pressure drop in piping system using above data, and pressure

drop can be evaluated using the following equation.

ΔP = ƒ L V2 ρ / 2 D (2-27)

Or, directly we can calculate head friction losses from following equation:

h f = ƒ L V2 / 2 D g

Where:

ΔP = is the pressure drop (Pa/m)

ƒ = friction factor

L = pipe length

V2 = square of water velocity m2 / sec2

51

ρ = is the density of water (kg/ m3)

D = is the inner diameter of the pipe (m)

hf = head friction losses (m)

Then we have to calculate pressure drop in fittings, because it is important to note the

pressure drop in these fittings.

hm = (V2 K/2g)

Where:

hm = minor head losses

K = resistance coefficient.

V2 = squared velocity.

g = ground acceleration m/s2

For 3/4" pipe: ((8×0.8) + (6×0.9) + (4×0.27))×(0.736)/ (2×9.81) = 0.63 m

For 1/2" pipe: ((6×0.3) + (4×0.9) + (6×0.9))×(0.191)/ (2×9.81) =0.105 m

hm total = 0.63 + 0.105 = 0.735m

htotal = ΔZ + hf + hm = 15 +4.37 +0.735 = 20.1m

Pump Specifications:

Circulating pump must circulate 1.08 (m3/ hr.)

Head to overcome = 20.1m

(2-10)Air Distribution & Duct work

The supply air should in the right temperature, humidity and in the right quantity

so that when it is mixed with the room air, the resultant room air condition falls within

the comfort condition.

In the hospitals proper temperature and humidity control depends on

delivering the proper amount of supply air at a carefully controlled temperature and

humidity. The delivery and distribution of conditioned air must be accomplished

without appreciable draft or noise.

Important consideration:

The correct amount of air (m3/s or CFM) that passes in each section or branch

of duct must be known and can be calculated from room sensible heat gain

Noise level.

Pressure drop in dampers, outlets, coils…etc. are obtainable from

manufacturer catalogues.

Pressure drop in straight ducts and fittings is calculated or selected based on

recommended velocities.

1) Straight sections.

2) Fittings (Bends, Branches … etc).

3) Fire fighting dampers.

4) Terminal units and air outlets as grills, diffusers, register … etc).

5) Heating coil.

6) Cooling coil.

7) Filters.

(1) Velocity method (simple, not accurate)

Volume flow rate in each branch and main duct has been given.

Velocity of air in each branch and main duct has been selected from recommended

velocities.

(2) Equal pressure drop (or equal friction method, accurate enough, widely used)

53

This method gives better results. It reduces size of duct and cost and is suitable for

completer system.

(3) Static region method (for balancing of branches).

(4) T-method (for computer simulation)

Equal friction method

Main duct recommendation velocity is from 7m/s.

Branches recommendation velocity is from 6 m/s

1- Determine the air quantity required for each zone to cover the cooling load (since

the cooling load is more critical than the heating load. So the duct design must depend

on the cooling load).

2- Locating the supply diffusers on the plane.

3-take the main duct velocity 7 m/sec (From velocity recommended for the buildings).

And by using the ductulator;

We can determine the remaining unknown values:

Pressure Friction (Pa/m)

Rectangular Duct Dimensions (Width X Depth)

In each Floor there is 3 Air Handling Units (numbered from 1 to 3), they cover the

whole floor load, the table below show the floors CFM needed and each room will be

covered by the proper AHU

A section of the duct connected to air handing unit # (1) (which will meet the

load of second floor)

4-Way Ceiling Supply

Line [A-B]

Assuming main duct velocity at A = 7m/s

Qtot=4928(l/s)

From ductulator (catalogue)

Qtot vs. V→ (ΔP/m)=0.494 (pa/m)

Duct dimensions = 87.5 (cm) × 85(cm)

Line [B-C]

ΔP= 0.494 pa/m Qtot =2763 L/s

From ductulator

Duct dimensions = 70(cm) × 70(cm

Line [C-D]

ΔP= 0.494 Pa/m Qtot =2486L/s

From ductulator

Duct dimensions = 65(cm) × 70(cm)

Line [D-E]

ΔP= 0.494 pa/m Qtot =2301 L/s

From ductulator

Duct dimensions =60(cm) × 70(cm)

55

Line [E-F]

ΔP= 0.494pa/m Qtot =2077 L/s

From ductulator

Duct dimensions =55 (cm) × 70(cm)

The same procedure followed by sizing the supply duct, by taking the ventilation load

only.

Return air :-

All return grills are located in the corridors and we added door grills for each room

in order to allow return air to pass through these door grills to return grills exists in

corridors.

50% of the supplied air is to be returned to the AHU by false ceiling the remaining

100% of fresh air for CCU rooms (AHU3)

50% of supplied air is exhausted by exhaust grills in bath rooms through door grills.

Duct area calculation

Area of one section = (2xdepth+2xwidth) × length of section

= (2x0.85+2x0.875) ×3.5

A=12.075 (m2)

=136.7+4.3=141 (m2)

And the same procedure for all A.H.U

The total area of duct for all = 941.8 (m2)

The A.H.U should be covered all friction loss in the duct and in the system,

and for it was noticed that the maximum pressure loss was 1.115

Maximum pressure loss in the duct = (Total length x pressure drop/meter) + (pressure

drop in diffuser)

= (95×1.2) + (0.03 in water × 350 pa/in water)

= 125 Pa.

Assume pressure loss in the air handling unit to be 375 Pascal (losses in the air intake,

filters cooling coil and other fittings).

56

So the fan pressure = 125 + 375 = 500 Pascal

And fan flow rate = 32204 CFM = 15.2m3/sec.

*all detailed duct sizing results are in Appendix (A)

Grills selection

Supply grills

To determine the position of grill we shoud calculate the throw that grill can coverd it

Calculation of throw

V0.25 → T0.25 /L

Throw = (T0.25 /L) × L

All supply grills are selected as supply ceiling diffuser –four way

From catalogues (throw vs.CFM of grill)

L: is measured by dividing each room and taking the farthest point from the middle or

where the grill is to be located.

Return Grills

All return grills are located in the corridors and we added door grills for each room in

order to allow return air to pass through these door grills to return grills exists in

corridors.

Exhaust grills the same as return grills taking the ventilation load, bath room, and

kitchen.
