Carbon Dioxide Based Demand Controlled Ventilation for Multiple Zone HVAC Systems

A mechanical ventilation system should be designed to provide a minimum amount of outdoor air to each space, based on design occupant number and area, according to ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2010. Demand Controlled-Ventilation (DCV) can be used to reduce unnecessary ventilation and save energy when a space is occupied at less than its design level.

Active Mechanisms for Enhancing Heat and Mass Transfer in Sorption Fluids (ASHRAE RP-1462)

The objective of this research is to develop enhancement techniques for coupled heat and mass transfer process for absorption technology.
