ASHRAE stands for American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers. My senior project, HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) design competition is sponsored by ASHRAE. The main objective my project is to provide correctly sized heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system for the metrological station in Diego Ramirez Island, Chile.

The lessons I learned from this projects so far are:

Zoning plan has to meet or exceed the building standards
The effects of windows, walls, roofs and partitions on load calculation
Heat pumps produce a consistent, even air flow, and they often require larger ducts than a forced-air system does.
3D Model of the Building
Demonstrating compliance with the latest editions of ASHRAE Standards 55, 62.1, and 90.1

I used Trace 700 to do the load calculation and Revit to do the duct design and create a 3D model of the building.

My goals in upcoming months is to size diffusers, finish duct calculation and the 3D model of the building.
