2011 ASHRAE Handbook volume tackles tall buildings in new chapter
June 20, 2011 - The newly published 2011 ASHRAE Handbook—HVAC Applications has a new chapter that focuses on the unique design issues that tall buildings present, says ASHRAE. “This volume covers an incredibly wide variety of topics, from residential, commercial, educational and health care facilities to agriculture, aircraft, fire and smoke management, solar energy, seismic- and wind-resistant design—even nuclear facilities," explains Rex Noble, chair of the subcommittee that supervised the 2011 revision. The volume also is being added to ASHRAE Handbook Online.
