In which CFD modeling lets us compare two possible design configurations for ventilation in a hospital patient room, yielding some similarities and perhaps surprising differences in what each configuration means for pathogen control and occupant comfort.
We’ve made some progress, but the fight against hospital-acquired infection (HAI) remains long and uphill. Here, we look at various risks and strategies, putting some thoughts on a wise approach to humidification in the context of the HAI battle.
The Museum of the Bible’s project team was already up against the extremes of Washington weather and the high demands of IAQ for artifact preservation. A system that harnessed adequate cooling, heating, humidification, and ventilation capabilities would still have one more hurdle: a physical footprint of hardly Biblical proportion. Get a first look at this testament to design acumen and true collaboration.
The high-profile equipment involves an efficient, resilient trigeneration plant to provide heating, cooling, and power service. However, UConn’s most critical asset may be its forward-thinking, campus-wide energy strategy. Read more stories in June Issue 2017.
