ATLANTA - The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has announced the release of the newly published 2011 ASHRAE Handbook-HVAC Applications, which includes a new chapter that focuses on the unique design issues that tall buildings present.

2011 HVAC Applications also contains 60 other chapters on a broad range of applications, written to help HVACR design engineers and others use the fundamentals, equipment, and systems described in other ASHRAE Handbook volumes.

“HVAC Applications has up-to-date, real-world guidance from many of the world’s leading authorities in their areas of expertise,” said Rex Noble, chair of the subcommittee that supervised the 2011 revision of the volume. “This volume covers an incredibly wide variety of topics, from residential, commercial, educational, and health care facilities to agriculture, aircraft, fire and smoke management, solar energy, seismic- and wind-resistant design - even nuclear facilities. In addition to the new chapter on tall buildings, we have a second new chapter on ultraviolet germicidal irradiation.”

The cost of the 2011 ASHRAE Handbook-HVAC Applications is $195 for the print version, which includes a searchable CD, or $165 for the CD only. ASHRAE members receive the print/CD version as a member benefit. The 2011 HVAC Applications volume also is being added to ASHRAE Handbook Online (available at http://handbook.ashrae.org).

To order, contact ASHRAE Customer Service at 800-527-4723 (United States and Canada) or 404-636-8400 (worldwide), or visit www.ashrae.org/bookstore.
