ASHRAE Announces Winter Meeting Seminars

ATLANTA, GA — The use of operable windows in nonresidential buildings will be examined in a seminar at the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers’ (ASHRAE) 2002 Winter Meeting. The session is one of nearly 90 programs that will be presented.

The first of a two-part seminar will focus on design and controls of operable windows, offering an engineering and architectural view. The second seminar will examine occupant response and building performance.

Alternative and sustainable technologies will also be highlighted in the meeting, which takes place January 12-16, in Atlantic City, NJ, at the Atlantic City Convention Center.

According to ASHRAE, in light of climate change and other global environmental issues, sustainability has become a frequently used term. A forum will explore whether consensus can be reached on the criteria for sustainability and what criteria must be satisfied to do so. Several other sessions will address energy management and economic issues; the advantages and disadvantages of mechanical dehumidification and desiccant dehumidification; refrigeration issues; and an overview of the major regulatory practices affecting refrigeration design, installation, and operation. Other programs will take a look at ASHRAE standards and guidelines, including ASHRAE Standard 90.1 and 90.2, and ASHRAE Guideline 12-2000.

For more information on ASHRAE’s winter meeting seminars, call 800-527-4723 or go to atlcit2002.htm (website).
