Meeting Documents

Download documents from previous committee meetings below according to the appropriate society year. ASHRAE's society year begins on July 1 and ends June 30.

Tip: The following section can be edited by the webmaster as needed. It does not have to be about Whitepapers. You can edit that to be anything. To add, delete or reposition sections of the accordion, use the concentric arrows button in the editing toolbar at the top. When typing or inserting text into an accordion and there is more than one paragraph, you MUST use "shift + enter" between paragraphs. Be sure that you do not accidentally just use the "enter" key to separate the paragraphs. It will look OK but after you publish the page, the text after the 'enter' may no longer be editable.

ASHRAE Design Guide for Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems [purchase]
Dedicated outdoor air systems (DOAS) provide HVAC designers with opportunities for advantages in simplicity, efficiency, and economy. This book represents the most complete and up-to-date guidance on the design, installation, and operation and management of DOAS in nonresidential applications.

Guided by the information in this book, HVAC system designers will be able to optimally incorporate DOAS into their projects. Architectural designers, building developers and owners, maintenance professionals, students, teachers, and researchers may also find the contents useful.

ASHRAE Webcast Highlights Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems [purchase]
While conventional HVAC systems mix fresh outdoor air with the return air in one unit, Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems use standard equipment to condition fresh air separately before it enters the building. This departure from the standard configuration is quickly becoming a proven tool for utilizing energy more efficiently, and can provide a cost saving to the consumer. The major benefit of Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems is that they can allow better and more precise humidity and ventilation control as compared to many conventional HVAC systems.

ASHRAE’s 2012 webcast “Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems– A Path to Balancing Energy and IEQ” focussed on this method to save energy and money at the same time. The webcast took place on April 19, 2012.  This webcast was brought to viewers by the Chapter Technology Transfer Committee and sponsored by Valent Air Management Systems, Rotor Source, Inc., Engineered Air, Munters, and Heat Pipe Technology.
