Conservation of Mass: An Old Principle That Needs More Usage in Hot & Humid Climates
MetadataShow full item record
Conservation of mass is such a basic principal that most designers no longer consider it for most design calculations. Design phase commissioning checks on several recent projects indicate designers should include conservation of mass calculations in the design. Recent retro-commissioning project indicate the concept should be considered by building owners and operators as well.
