The Final Report contains information pertaining to the analyses that were conducted.
DOAS/Active Chilled Beam: Computational Fluid Dynamic models were simulated to analyze air flow distribution, temperature distribution, and contaminant distribution between the existing VAV/CAV and redesign DOAS/ACB system. Energy and cost analyses were also done to compare the two systems.
Heat Recovery Systems: Four typeSs of heat recovery systems were analyzed: heat pipe, fixed plate, enthalpy wheel, runaround coil loop. Analyses on energy saving, potential cross contamination, maintenance, and cost were done to determine the best suitable system.
Solar Shading System: Energy analyses were done to evaluation the effect of solar shading system on building energy consumption. Renderings were made the compare the existing building and the building with solar shades in the aesthetic aspect.
