Necessity of Expanded Field Data to Validate Ground Source Heat Pump Design Models
By Steve Kavanaugh, Ph.D., Fellow/Life Member ASHRAE
This article reviews field data from long-term ground source heat pump systems that often diverge from ground heat exchanger model results, and in doing so shows why it’s necessary to obtain much larger field data sets. Read more
By Andy Pearson, Ph.D., C.Eng., Fellow ASHRAE
Columnist Andy Pearson talks about European F-gas regulations and how it could possibly affect the refrigeration community in terms of safety and implementation of new refrigerants. Read more
