163-Heat Load Calculations for Refrigerated Spaces
Course Objectives: This continuing education course is written specifically for professional engineers with the objective of relating to and enhancing the practice of engineering.
This course breaks down the heat gain calculations required for any refrigerated space into four categories; transmission, infiltration, product and miscellaneous. An Excel spreadsheet will be provided that calculates the thermal loads in each of these areas and automatically transfers that design data to a concise one page summary.
The course delves into the materials, properties, logic and equations required for heat load calculations in each of the above four areas. It also offers guidance with respect to industry norms and typical, basic cold storage construction techniques.
Upon completion of this course, a good understanding of the refrigeration requirements of most refrigerated spaces will be attained.
