Title

Modulating and mixing characteristics of air flow dampers

Abstract

"The performance of air flow control dampers is critical to indoor air quality, reliability, energy efficiency and overall performance of heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system. Control characteristics and mixing characteristics of flow control dampers play important roles in accurate sizing and selection of air flow dampers. Part of the current thesis is an extension of American Society of Heating Refrigerating and Air-conditioning (ASHRAE) RP-1157 which presents the data from experiments conducted on six types of dampers...A later part of the thesis is based on recommendations of ASHRAE RP-1045 to study the mixing characteristic of the air flow damper using Computational Fluid Dynamics CFD) techniques"--Abstract, leaf iii.
