ASHRAE Chicago 2015

 Evaluating Embedded Pipe Radiant Floor Cooling and Heating Panels Using Finite Element Analysis
Copyright (C) 2015, Robert Bean, R.E.T., P.L.(Eng.), Healthy Heating and content contributors, All world rights reserved

Overview: Though the heat transfer coefficients from the surface of conditioned floors are universally accepted, the multidimensional heat exchange processes within the slab are less understood. This presentation will illustrate using finite element analysis, the relationships between the physical and thermal characteristics of the floor. The outcome from this session will help practitioners optimise the panel heat exchanger design for enabling maximum energy and exergy efficiency from the heating and cooling system.

Learning Objectives:
1. Describe the relationships between the physical and thermal characteristics of the various elements assembled for constructing embedded pipe radiant floor cooling and heating panels.
2.Explain the limitations of 2D finite element analysis when evaluating embedded pipe systems.

Go to the IEQ group and join up.
If already a member go to Step 3
Note: we post notices in several Linked-In groups but we only manage password requests at the IEQ group, use link to right>>>

Go here to the IEQ Linked-In discussion group and request to join


In the IEQ group post this entire string of text:

"please send me the password for the ASHRAE Chicago 2015 Seminar - Evaluating Embedded Pipe Radiant Floor Cooling and Heating Panels Using Finite Element Analysis at this URL <>"

Go here to post your password request (don't post requests in other groups, our admin. people don't monitor them)


If you have questions please post them in the IEQ group. Before sending us private emails for assistance see this page>>

Post questions here in the IEQ group or go here for Services


Top 5 reasons why you may not be receiving the password:


You have not joined the IEQ group as per instruction step #2


You have not posted a password request at the IEQ group as per instruction step #3


You have not included the text string as per instruction step #3


You have sent us a private email requesting the password - see instruction step #3 and step #4


You have posted a request in another Linked-In discussion group - see instruction step #2

Background - we have over 800 pages at the website many with course slides and spreadsheet tools. In order for us to manage who wants what and from where, our administrative team assigns a password to a URL and uses the IEQ Linked In group to manage the request. Additionally our email is backlogged to last year so sending us private emails requesting passwords for this years conference material is an exercise in futility...if you really want the resources - please follow the instructions.
