Chilled beam application guidebook.

Author(s) : REHVA, VIRTA M., BUTLER D., GRÄSLUND J., et al.

Type of monograph: Book, Guide/Handbook


The advantages of chilled beam cooling are in low noise generation, low room velocities and flexibility. The high temperature level of cooling media also improves the energy efficiency of the mechanical cooling and allows longer periods of free cooling. The guidebook presents the theory on the principles of chilled beam cooling and illustrates its practical applications.
Chilled beam systems are primarily used for cooling and ventilation in spaces, where good indoor environmental quality and individual space control are appreciated and where the internal moisture loads are moderate. They can also be used for heating.
Extract from the table of contents: theoretical background; room air-conditioning system selection; creating good indoor climate with chilled beams; chilled beam system design; product selection; installation and commissioning; running of chilled beam system; case studies (cases of office buildings in the United Kingdom, France, Sweden, Belgium and Finland).
