                       COURSE LINKS AND RESOURCES


           The PYSCH, PIPE, COIL and DUCT programs can be obtained from the author’s web site and at the Wiley Student Site.  Access to this site is through a Registration Code given in the text.


              A commercial license to the Carrier Hourly Analysis Program (HAP), used by consulting engineers and contractors, has been obtained for use in the Chicago Building project.   HAP is used to calculate the heating and cooling loads of buildings and to simulate their operation.  HAP can be accessed from any of the 30 computers in Furnas 1019. A manual is included in the HAP directory.  Files cannot be saved on the 1019 computers and will have to be saved to your account or diskette



             The EES Program, Engineering Equation Solver, is licensed to the UB Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department thru the use of McGraw Hill textbooks. This program provides thermodynamic property values for 69 fluids, including air-water vapor in the data base AirH2O, and a programmable environment that can be used for solving psychrometric process and refrigeration cycle problems.  I can give you a copy of EES if you bring a flash drive to my office.

  Department of Energy (DOE) EnergyPlus and eQuest Programs 


            The EnergyPlus program is used to calculate building loads, energy usage and simulate complete building systems including, load, distribution system and refrigeration plant.  EnergyPlus is a research level program and is much more accurate, detailed and much more difficult to learn than HAP.

  e-Quest is a simulation only program but is more user friendly. Both programs are free at the DOE website.
