Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A COMPREHENSIVE ACCEPTANCE TEST PROCEDURE THAT DETERMINES WHETHER AIR DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS IN NEW BUILDINGS ARE INSTALLED PROPERLY AND OPERATING IN AN ENERGY EFFICIENT MANNER. THE APPROCH IS TO MEASURE CRITICAL ENERGY, FLOW, PRESSURE AND TEMPERATURE PARAMETERS AND TO COMPARE THESE RESULTS WITH EXPECTED VALUES FROM DESIGN CALCULATIONS AND ENGINEERING TEST DATA SUPPLIED BY THE DESIGN ENGINEER. MEASUREMENT TECHNIQUES WILL BE ASSESSED TO MAXIMIZE THE ACCURACY OF THE PROCEDURES WHILE MAKING THEM AFFORDABLE AND AS SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE TO IMPLEMENT. THE PROCEDURES ARE EXPECTED TO PROVIDE EMPIRICAL MEANS FOR MECHANICAL SYSTEMS ACCEPTANCE AND TO DIAGNOSE PROBLEMS WITH DESIGN, EQUIPMENT, AND INSTALLATION.
