Building services engineering is a combination of art, science, and engineering design applied to create internal environments. The building services engineer, therefore, has to be conversant in a wide range of subjects. "Mechanical Services for Buildings" realises this fact and provides coverage of advanced topics in heating, ventilating, and air conditioning. Beginning with a discussion on heating and pressurized heating systems the book goes on to look at transient heat flow, moisture transfer, mass transfer and refrigeration plant. Great emphasis is placed on energy efficiency and a practical approach is adopted throughout. The authors have taken care to ensure the text is accessible to a wide ranging undergraduate readership concerned with the building services industry. Only a basic knowledge of thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics is assumed and emphasis placed on the latest CIBSE design procedures and sign conventions. The book teaches through worked examples, drawn from past exam papers for degree course work.
