PGE - Optimizing Energy and Comfort Performance of Underfloor Air Distribution (UFAD) Systems: Guide
|Also Offered||April 18 (Wednesday, 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm) Internet|
|Description||As the adoption of underfloor air distribution (UFAD) has grown, a strong desire for design guidance and tools has emerged among industry professionals. To meet this need, the Center for the Built Environment (CBE) through its "industry/university cooperative research" approach has produced reliable design tools and energy models, as well as practical guidelines for design, commissioning, and operation of UFAD buildings. CBE's extensive work spanning more than ten years has led to the recognition of CBE as the leading research institution on UFAD technology. The purpose of this workshop is to provide an opportunity to learn about and discuss CBE's most recent collection of UFAD technology tools and resources.
This event is sponsored by the Center for the Built Environment (CBE), at the University of California, Berkeley, and the PG&E Pacific Energy Center.
Fred's research interests include underfloor air distribution (UFAD) and task/ambient conditioning (TAC) systems, room air distribution, thermal comfort, building energy use, ventilation and indoor air quality, laboratory and field measurement methods, and natural ventilation.Fred has led the development of CBE's world renowned research program on underfloor air distribution and is a frequent invited speaker on UFAD design at workshops and conferences. Fred is the author of the Underfloor Air Distribution (UFAD) Design Guide, published by ASHRAE in 2003, and has also written more than 50 technical articles on UFAD and TAC systems. In recent years Fred has led CBE's research program on advanced integrated systems with a focus on radiant slab cooling. He has received two Best Symposium Paper Awards from ASHRAE (1992, 1993), and in 1997, received the ASHRAE Distinguished Service Award. Fred received an MS degree in Mechanical Engineering from UC Berkeley, and a BS in Mathematics from Harvey Mudd College.
