ASHRAE 1117-RP Experimental Validation of the Heat Balance and Radiant Time Series Cooling Load Calculation Procedures

Sponsor:  ASHRAE

Investigators:  D.E. Fisher

Students:  D. Eldridge, C. Iu, C. Chantrasrisalai

Description:  Two full scale test cells will experimentally determine room heat extraction rates under various environmental and operating conditions.  The measured sensible cooling load will be compared to the load predicted by heat balance and RTS calculation procedures.
