Course Exam

Next Thursday (April 15) 7 pm Same classroom (ECJ 7.208) 2.5-hour exam Open book open notes
All problem types of questions
(short but comprehensive)

Finish the pumps and plumbing systems

Discuss the final project

Pumps and Plumbing

Very similar to fans and ducts
Same principles based on fluid dynamics With some specifics

Hydronic Terms
Head loss Open-loop vs. closed loop 2-pipe vs. 4-pipe

Head Loss

Table 19.1
Pipe dimensions for standard pipe

V (h ! k 2g

Driving force to move air water in buildings Raise pressure and produce flow One main type

Pump curves

NPSHR = Net Positive Suction Head Required

Finding Volumetric Flow

Same procedure as for air Intersection of pump curve and system curve How can you control flow?

Changing Pump Speed

Use Multiple Pumps

Plumbing Arrangements

Example 19.7
Similar to equal friction method Calculate head loss for common pieces of system Size pipes to have equal head loss between points 2 and 3

Review for the Exam

Should be able to do all calculations associated with lectures as well as HW1
Questions/problems may deal with context
i.e. Explain how thermal conductivity influences fin efficiency? Holding all other parameters equal, how important is increasing the thermal conductivity

Psychrometrics and Processes (7 & 8)

Know all parameters and their location/orientation on a psychrometric chart Be able to look up conversions of parameters on a psychrometric chart and with calculations Use protractor to calculate SHR and W/ h Plot processes on a chart for real buildings
List what is held constant for different processes

Direct Contact (10)

Describe how a cooling tower works Describe analysis procedure for direct contact devices

Cycles (3), Refrigerants (4)

Describe Carnot cycle and components

List, describe, and calculate inefficiencies Use figures, refrigerant tables and equations for different substances Contrast different refrigerants List important parameters for refrigerant selection/differentiation

Heat Exchangers (11)

Differentiate types Calculate NTU, , cr, R, P, F, m, UA, etc. Complete broad analysis
Which m is larger, which t is larger?
Within and between heat exchangers

Heat Exchangers (11)

Calculate and compare different thermal resistances Describe influence of key factors Integrate different parameters/resistances Manipulate UA equation Describe differences/parameters of relevance for wet heat exchangers

Diffusers, Duct Components (18)

Select diffusers
Define all terms on manufacturer data sheets

Calculate pressure drop of:
