Discuss why the above set of environmental variables are important regarding the design of engineering systems within the office. List all assumptions used in the determination of these values. (Typically, 1 page)
b) Based on a design building heat loss of 50 W/m2 calculate all room heat losses, determine the building heat loss and select an appropriately sized gas fired boiler, or boilers, for the whole building and locate it/them in the Services Plant Room. Provide manufacturers literature as appropriate to demonstrate your selection procedures and explain your thinking as to why one or more boilers were selected. Procedures are demonstrated in lectures (Typically, 1 page)
c) – Select and size, using earlier determined room heat losses together with manufacturers’ literature as appropriate, a suitable type of heat emitter or emitters, on a room by room basis, for all rooms and spaces in the building as felt appropriate.
