Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here Howden Group and the Fan Industry. Hey David, I have been looking for a copy of this book for a while and I am struggling.
His patent for a method of preheating combustion air led to the design of mechanical draft systems in The copy in the picture is the 9th edition, published in Enginfering on the hyperlink for the chapter takes you to a bookmarked summary of the chapter content, from which you howdfn jump to the topic of interest.
Having said that, read on as there are some advantages to getting the latest edition.

Fan Engineering has been written as a handbook for engineers who use fans. Axial Fans Our Axial Fans range all the way up from light applications such as air conditioning. Its such a classic that it has to be out there, but the contacts I had have moved on. This chapter deals with the thermodynamic properties, especially pressure, temperature, humidity, density, and enthalpy Transport properties, such as viscosity, thermal conductivity, and diffusivity, are dealt with in subsequent chapters.
But, I suspect you can find copies for less by shopping around a bit on the internet or used book stores. Part I deals with fundamental topics. As I type this, I realize there is one more person I should try so stay tuned. Cooling Fans Inside cooling towers and air-cooled heat exchangers, the quietest choice of cooling fan is the SX series from Howden.
We are pleased to be able to present the Ninth Edition of Fan Engineeringwhich is recognised worldwide as THE definitive handbook on fan design and fan applications, enginedring reflects our lengthy experience with fan design.
Inside cooling towers and air-cooled heat exchangers, the quietest choice of cooling fan is the SX series from Howden. Since the principles behind Newtonian physics have not changed much sinceI suspect the used edition represents a good value for someone on a budget. The name Howden has been associated with the fan industry since the early days of the industrial revolution.

If you are wondering exactly how the calculations are done, you can simply highlight a cell, and view the formula, just like you can in any other Excel spreadsheet. The gaseous materials most frequently encountered in fan engineering are air and water vapor; accordingly, most of the data are for these substances. August 16, at 3: Note that it is set up for both IP U. Chapter 1 Properties of Air and Other Gases The thermodynamic and transport properties of gases and vapors are important in fan engineering.
For instance, in the actual handbook, clicking on the equation hyperlinks shown in blue above will take you to those equations, which are in a different chapter.
Each made valuable contributions to the art and science of fan engineering as did those which followed in the twentieth century like Ventilatoren Stork, Nordisk Ventilator Company, Voith, and Novenco Industries. ASHRAE considers all these gases in the calculation of the apparent molecular weight of clean, dry atmospheric air and obtains a value of And, truth be told, I really appreciate having both the electronic and paper engineerin.
