Manuel de conception des systèmes de chauffage, ventilation et conditionnement d'air pour les hôpitaux et les cliniques.

HVAC design manual for hospitals and clinics.

Auteurs : ASHRAE

Type de monographie : Ouvrage, Guide/Manuel


The purpose of this manual is to provide a comprehensive source for the design, installation, and commissioning of HVAC systems for hospitals and outpatient clinics. It covers environmental comfort, infection control, energy conservation, life safety, and operation and maintenance, providing design strategies known to meet applicable standards and guidelines. It also contains information on disaster planning and provides the "best practice" recommendations on temperature/humidity/air exchange and pressure requirements for various types of rooms found in hospitals. Extract from the table of contents: terminology; facility descriptions; overview of health care HVAC (infection and safety hazards; energy efficiency and operating cost; equipment sizing for heating and cooling loads; environmental control HVAC system hygiene); HVAC systems; design considerations for existing facilities; cooling plants (design considerations; chilled water distribution systems; chiller plant controls and instrumentation; cooling plants for clinics); air-handling and distribution systems; controls and instrumentation; smoke control and life safety; room design (role of ventilation in infection control and comfort; health care room design criteria); clinics and other health care facilities; operation, maintenance, commissioning; energy efficient design and conservation of energy resources. In the appendices: managing construction and renovation to reduce risk in health care facilities; disaster management; load calculations and equipment heat gains; infection control issues; life-cycle cost analysis; ventilation standards and current trends (this appendix includes an A3 table that summarizes "best practices" ventilation rates and temperature and humidity requirements for each functional area); power quality issues; sample control strategies; operating room air distribution.
