COURSE:  WENG 561 Applications of HVAC Design and Analysis

OBJECTIVE:  To provide mechanical engineers with the tools and best practices applicable to HVAC system analysis and design.

DESCRIPTION:  ENG 561 is an in-resident, advanced level course intended to build upon HVAC fundamentals to give mechanical engineers the ability to perform HVAC system analysis and design. This course will cover: General HVAC concepts, Systems, and Equipment. Major topics include thermodynamics, heat transfer, psychrometrics, design conditions, facility energy estimating & load calculations, air and water system design, air-conditioning systems & configurations, air-processing equipment, and refrigeration. This course is a follow-on to WENG 560 Fundamentals of HVAC Design and Analysis.

PRIMARY AUDIENCE:  Mechanical engineers responsible for the analysis, design, procurement, and operation of HVAC systems.

SECONDARY AUDIENCE:  Other Engineers, technicians, engineering project managers, or energy managers.

GRADE:   Commissioned AFSC 32E (CE) officers in the grades O-1 thru O-4; civilian GS-301-09 thru GS-14; 3E (CE) noncommissioned officers E-7 through E-9.

PREREQUISITES:  B.S. in Mechanical Engineering or a B.S. in any Engineering degree with successful completion of WENG 560 Fundamentals of HVAC Design and Analysis

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:  Individuals interested in attending the in-residence course must successfully complete the distant learning portion. Uniform requirements: Military members will wear the ABUs. Civilian members will wear business casual. Civilians will also need to bring clothing appropriate for working on HVAC systems and other field trips to mechanical rooms and vaults. Equipment requirements: For the resident portion: All students must bring a scientific calculator, HVAC textbook, Ductilator and System Syzer. Special Notes: Supplemental information, including instructions for processing orders, will be provided to the student via email.


COURSE CREDIT:  3.5 CEUs in compliance with IACET standards
