  • Experimental analysis of performance, greenhouse gas emissions and economic parameters for two cooling systems in a public Administration Building
    Energy and Buildings, 2015
    Co-Authors: Juan C. Herrera, César R. Chamorro, M. Carmen Martín
    Abstract:

    Abstract More than a quarter of the non-residential Buildings in Europe are public Buildings and their energy consumption is forty percent higher than that of residential Buildings. Therefore, promoting a public policy to increase energy efficiency of the HVAC systems in public Buildings will have a significant impact in reducing global energy consumption. In order to have a precise estimation of the impact of the substitution of the HVAC systems in a large number of public Buildings, it is essential to have accurate data of the performance of these systems in specific Buildings, beyond the technical specifications stated by the manufacturers. In this paper the substitution of the wide-spread, conventional air-condensed chiller (ACC) for a water-condensed chiller (WCC) with a dry-adiabatic cooler in a public Administration Building is analyzed in terms of energy efficiency, economic return of the required investment and environmental implications. The influence of external factors as well as the load effect are quantified. The results show that the seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio of the WCC is near twice that of the ACC, making the replacement of the ACC for the WCC an interesting option. The results obtained in this study could be extrapolated to other non-residential public Buildings.

  • Protective retrofit in Administration Building of West China Hospital of Sichuan University
    , 2006
    Co-Authors: Chen Hongyan
    Abstract:

    The Administration Building of West China Hospital Sichuan University was designed by Canadian experts,and Built in 1942.The structure has been used for more than 60 years and exceed the design working life.Whereas the structure is the representative Building of the Sichuan University,strengthening of main structure and retrofitting exterior of the Building for protecting is necessary.The brick walls are strengthened with reinforcing mesh,to replace the original wooden ceiling and roof frame.The examination shows that the strengths of the members after strengthening meet the demands of design.The design schemes,simplified calculation formulas and local constructions of the methods are presented.
