BACnet is a set of data communication protocols, developed jointly by ASHRAE, ANSI and ISO, for how the automatic control systems in a building--from heating, to ventilation to lighting to fire control and alarm systems - can communicate with one another and, in turn, offer a centralized way for controlling all systems in a building. The author of this book H. Michael Newman presided as the chairman of the first effort to create this standard, and has been involved with updates and improvements ever since. The BACnet protocols are made use of in central control systems manufactured by companies like Honeywell, Siemens, and Johnson Controls, among many others. BACnet is widely used throughout the world today for commercial and institutional buildings with complex mechanical and electrical systems. Contractors, architects, building systems engineers, and facilities managers must all be cognizant of it and its applications. This book will offer those readers the 'inside wisdom' from the person who actually helped to create this standard specification...making it easier to understand the intent and use of each of the data sharing protocols, the controller requirements, and the opportunities for inter-operability between different proprietary controllers and systems. Readers will appreciate: The review of history of BACnet and its essential features, including the 'object model,' data links, network layers, and BACnet systems Coverage such services as alarm and event services, file access services, and remote device management services Insight into future directions for BACnet, including wireless networking and network security

R&D Investment and Impact in the Global Construction Industry brings together contributions from leading industry researchers in a diverse group of countries to investigate the role of research and development (R&D) in the construction industry. Investment in R&D is a proven factor in economic growth, and helps develop a more productive and innovative industry. This book explores how policy makers and industry leaders can better target future investment; and how industry and researchers can manage their efforts to improve productivity whilst addressing the environmental and social needs of their communities. Case studies present projects where R&D ideas funded by both the private and public sectors have been translated from research into practice or policy, and examine drivers, successes and barriers to the delivery of R&D in industry. Based on research from members of the CIB Task Group 85 (R&D Investment and Impact) and concluding with key insights for maximising the impact of R&D in the future, the book holds valuable lessons for practitioners, policy makers and researchers across the international construction industry.

Over the past 20 years, energy conservation imperatives, the use of computer based design aids, and major advances in intelligent management systems for buildings have transformed the design and operation of comfort systems for buildings. The "rules of thumb" used by designers in the1970s are no longer viable. Today, building systems engineers must have a strong analytical basis for design synthesis processes. But how can you develop this basis? Do you have on your shelf a reference that describes all the latest methods? Does it cover everything from the fundamentals to state-of-the art, intelligent systems? Does it do so in practical way that you can easily access and use when you need to? The Handbook of Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning does. It combines practice and theory, systems and control, and the latest methods and technologies to provide, in one volume, all of the modern design and operation information needed by HVAC engineers. The Handbook of Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning will stay up-to-date while other resources become outmoded and go through lengthy revision and reprint processes. Through a link on the CRC Web site, owners of the Handbook can access new material periodically posted by the author.
