Welcome to the Birmingham ASHRAE Chapter


Monthly Meeting - April
Topic: Fundamentals of Building Envelopes and Humidity Control in Hot and Humid Climates
Speaker: Raymond Patenaude, DL click here for bio
When:
April 25, 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Location: Trane Birmingham - 1030 London Drive, Suite 100, Birmingham, AL 
Lunch will be provided.


Topic Summary:

Designing buildings in hot & humid climates requires the integration of techniques found in the ASHRAE Guide for Buildings in Hot and Humid Climates and the ASHRAE Humidity Control Design Guide.  Mr. Patenaude, P.E. will provide a presentation on the fundamentals of building envelopes in hot and humid climates, estimating dehumidification loads, control of outdoor ventilation air with the use of dedicated outdoor air systems and building air pressurization. These techniques are the main cause for concern for HVAC Engineers and comprise most building failures in hot and humid areas.
