January Meetings of the 1970s

1970 – Boeing 747 Assembly Facilities
Bayne Lamb, Director of Facilities – Boeing 747 Division, provided an overview of Facilities Department operations at Everett over dinner at the plant cafeteria. Following the presentation, a factory tour was conducted during normal second shift operation. This was one of the highest attended chapter meetings in Puget Sound Chapter history, with more than 190 guests pre-registering for the event.


The meeting is touted as one of the chapter’s best in history, with attendance exceeding 190, in the February 1970 Punch List (left).

1971 – Cancelled Due to Snow
Don Owens and Bill Erdelyi were scheduled to discuss performance and operations of the Seattle First National Bank Building on January 12, but inclement weather resulted in cancellation of the meeting. This was to be a preview of their upcoming presentation at the Advanced Air Conditioning Course underway at the University of Washington.

1972 – Community Colleges vs. Four-Year Degrees
In conjunction with Student Night, Rix Mallonee of Shoreline Community College spoke on “Technical Education for Our Industry”. Mallonee discussed the importance of “hands on” engineering, pointing out that community colleges teach their students what a bolt looks like, while the University of Washington no longer required drafting for an engineering degree, resulting in good engineers who do not know hardware. Mallonee stressed the importance of ASHRAE sponsorship for student chapters at community colleges.

1973 – Naval Surface Effect Ships
Joe Sublett of Aerojet-General Corporation spoke on surface effect ships and Aerojet’s two major contracts to develop a 100-ton rigid sidewall ship and a 150-ton amphibious air cushion vehicle.

1974 – Draw-Thru vs. Blow-Thru Systems
James Tilbury of Mammoth Division, Lear Siegler Inc, presented an energy consumption analysis of Draw-Thru versus Blow-Thru multi-zone systems. According to the February 1974 Punch List, Mr. Tilbury, “armed with slides, graphs, and appropriate responses from John Proctor of Proctor Sales”, delivered a graphic presentation showing that while blow-thru units reduce first costs, draw-thru systems provide significant operational savings at part-load operation.

1975 – Threshold Limits of Exposure
Pete Preysse and Dick Hibbard from the University of Washington spoke on National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health exposure limits for 35,000 known toxic chemicals used in industrial processes. The presentation covered design standards for controls and monitoring devices, as well as Mr. Hibbard’s rationalization as to why he still smoked.


Pete Preysse discussed exposure limits for known toxic chemicals.



Dick Hibbard discussed design standards and rationalized his smoking habit.










1976 – Design Considerations for Alaska
J. Donal Krocker spoke on unique design considerations in the 49th state. For example, low solar angle and continuous solar heat gains during long summer days results in greater air conditioning needs in Anchorage and Juneau than Eureka, California. Mr. Krocker also discussed strategies for dealing with permafrost.




J. Donal Krocker emphasizes that Alaska is still the untamed land it was when Robert Service penned “The Cremation of Sam McGee”, and that although we’ve become more sophisticated, some projects are still shut down when winter sets in.











1977 – Economic Outlook for the Year
Edward McMillan, Sr. Vice President and Chief Economist of Rainier National Bank, discussed the economic outlook for 1977 with an emphasis on new construction. In summary, McMillan claimed “on balance, considering all factors, it’s pretty hard to interpret what we’re looking at as anything but a quite favorable outlook”.

1978 – Variable Air Volume System Fan Control
Dick Querns of Cambridge Filter Corporation discussed flow measuring stations, extraction of control signals, and use of these signals to control fans in VAV systems. Querns also spoke on area pressurization control and constant volume control systems.

1979 – Reversible Reactions for Heat Storage
Dr. Eckart Schmidt of Rocket Research Co. discussed thermal energy storage and transmission systems for solar energy utilization, explosive stimulation of geothermal steam wells, and inflatable safety system “air” bags.

Building Science and Integrated Design

The cover story in November's HPAC magazine made a critical point about integrated design: In order to optimize building performance, HVAC designers need to take a more proactive role in the design of the building their systems are serving.

The author describes the traditional 'reactive' role of the HVAC designer, and advocates for a more active role in the design of what was traditionally left to the Architect. He provides a compelling example in the illustration of the effect of architectural detail on overall building component thermal performance.

A recent study focused on architects' building-envelope details and their impact on HVAC designers' heating- and cooling-load calculations. Four identically insulated and glazed building models were set up with R-19 wall insulation, but with variations in window frames, wall detailing, and wall construction. The models had the same window areas and center-of-glass thermal performance. The overall wall thermal resistance varied from a low of R-4.8 to R-12.6. (This included adding the R values of the glazing and frames to the wall thermal resistance to get an "overall" R value).

Thermal bridging caused by accepting cheaper/faster construction products and details can degrade wall and roof thermal transmission by more than 25 percent below insulation values. For example, R-20 wall insulation, coupled with poor thermal-bridging details, may provide an actual R-13 to R-14 thermal-transmission barrier.


But to be effective, the HVAC designer must, of course, understand the building science behind the way these components perform. The author suggest the use of free software modeling the effect of glazing details at windows.lbl.gov/software/therm/therm.html
or more basic education at www.arch.hku.hk/teaching/learn.htm and www.bestofbuildingscience.com.

ASHRAE members also should not overlook the excellent series "Building
Sciences" by Joseph W. Lstiburek, Ph.D., P. Eng. found in the ASHRAE Journal (membership required for access). Dr. Lstiburek brings humor and insight to a subject over which mastery is demanded by today's energy performance goals.

WSU Selects Shoreline CC as Site for Solar Decathlon House



In 2005, WSU students built an ultra-low energy house for competition in the Department of Energy's Solar Decathlon. They were the only team from the Northwest competing in that year's event.

The structure was built to be portable, and was constructed from a discarded shipping container. It utilizes ultra-efficient insulation, recycled construction materials, and heats domestic water with the rejected heat from the refrigerator.

Recently, WSU donated the structure to Shoreline Community College where it will serve as the focus for the college's programs exploring renewable industries, architecture, construction management and engineering.

It's a great example of forward thinking engineering in our backyard. The Zero Energy House is located on the northwest corner of the campus, at 16101 Greenwood Ave. N., just west of Aurora Avenue and north of Seattle city limits. Community organizations can schedule private tours by calling Brian Mast at 206-280-8167.

TEGA October 2007 Committee Meeting Recap

Submitted by Lisa Rosenow

The presenters for the October TEGA meeting were energy modeling expert Kevin Madison, and Mark Frankel, technical director for the New Buildings Institute.

Mark provided an overview of the Advanced Buildings Core Performance Guide, which “outlines a step-by-step simplified approach to achieve predictable energy savings in small- to medium-sized buildings without the need for modeling.” Energy simulation and related analysis is a significant cost to achieving LEED EAC1 credits. For small buildings, having to spend thousands of dollars for energy simulations and reporting will lead some designers to forgo LEED EAC1 credits in lieu of other credits that cost less to document and support. USGBC recently approved prescriptive LEED EAC1 credits for buildings that follow the "Core Performance Guide" published by the New Buildings Institute. Under this approach, small to medium size buildings can achieve up to 5 LEED EAC1 credits by incorporating straight forward prescriptive measures.

Information in this guide is based on ideas and products that are readily available. During the development of this guide it was found that in general measures that are the best are the best everywhere. The guide also has an Enhanced Performance section that covers products and ideas where there are only one or two manufacturers available, or where there are gaps in available sizes.

There are three basic subsections in the guide:
1. Design Process Documentation – Identifying and communicating the design intent.
2. Building Optimization – Includes building configuration, optimized mechanical and lighting systems design, etc.
3. Operational Performance – Construction certification (acceptance testing), operator training and documentation, and performance data review.

Kevin Madison explained how strategies recommended in the Core Performance Guide were evaluated using the batch processing capability of eQUEST Version 3.62. Resources from the California Enduse Study (CEUS) and the Database for Energy Efficient Resources (DEER) from the California Energy Commission, and the Advanced Buildings Measure Analysis by The New Buildings Institute were used to calibrate energy utilization index (EUI) data. Kevin shared various batch processing examples and explained the various types that can be done in eQUEST. He utilized the Ranked Efficiency Measure feature to identify the best strategies for the Core Performance Guide. The analysis included identifying strategies that were more stringent that ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2004, size threshold lower that 90.1-2004, and items that have value for quality construction and operation.

He also summarized various upgrades and enhancements in eEQUEST Version 3.62. Items include hourly results access through D2Sim Viewer located under Detailed Reports; EEM Run Wizard feature; friendlier UI parametric runs and INP imports; layer-by-layer constructions in the Wizards; a more robust Results module with project run pruning; and a QC Reporting Summary that reports run cautions. In addition algorithms have been added or enhanced to better handle direct expansion PIU systems, variable flow zonal exhaust, skylight and daylight modeling, and curves for small frictionless chillers.

A copy of Kevin Madison’s presentation is available on the meeting presentations page of the ASHRAE Puget Sound Chapter website.

Puget Sound Chapter - 40 Years Ago

December 1967
A Single Fuel for the Built Environment
Forty years ago, the December chapter meeting topic was “Total Energy Systems” and focused on the use of a single fuel for the built environment. The guest speaker was Frank Gething of Cleaver-Brooks Company’s Heat Recovery Division. Frank, who learned power systems as a British Royal Navy Engineering Officer during World War II, discussed combining engine-driven generators with exhaust heat recovery and ebullient engine jacket cooling to provide on-site electric power, heating, and cooling.

Puget Sound Chapter History Published by Founding Members in 1967
The written history of Puget Sound Chapter had its beginning in 1962 with Chapter President Rod Kirkwood’s appointment of former presidents from the merged Pacific Northwest Chapters of ASHVE and ASRE to record their first-hand experiences of the formation of each predeceasing chapter, and their merger into Puget Sound Chapter ASHRAE. The committee consisted of Carl Anderson, Charles Hall, Clarence Pangborn, and Ernie Weber. This history was published in a series of Punch List articles in 1967-68.

Chapter history has since been amended, but is not fully up to date. Puget Sound Chapter history is viewable on the chapter website at http://www.pugetsoundashrae.org/history.htm. If you have an interest in continuing the tradition of maintaining our chapter’s history, preserving artifacts in the chapter library, or researching historical installations of HVAC&R systems in the Puget Sound region, your assistance is greatly needed. Please contact David Landers, Chapter Historian, at 425-456-2381 or david.landers@pse.com.

ASHRAE Green Guide

I spent some time over the holidays catching up on my reading--I had at least three old ASHRAE Journals to review and I have a copy of the ASHRAE Green Guide just taking up room on my shelf. While I was familiar with the Green Tips portion of the guide (Available for free at the Engineering for Sustainability website), I really hadn't spent much time reviewing the book itself. After a quick review, one of the portions of the book I found interesting was in Chapter 7: Conceptual Engineering Design-Load Determiniation. The guide had some sample pie charts showing average energy use of particular building types in specific climactic areas of the US. The guide provided a web-link to where software to create this type of graph for a given project could be found. The idea being that it would help to know what the state of the industry is when setting performance goals for your high-performance project. The software tool identified, however, is a commercial product and requires the user to purchase a site license to gain the capabilities highlighted in the Guide.

After a little snooping around on the web, I found that much of this information is available for free online: One place this sort of data is available is The Energy Information Agency website. This site publishes a lot of data about energy use in commercial and residential structures in the US, including basic data of energy use broken out by region. This data is compiled from extensive surveys of many, many facilities throughout the US.

More limited in scope, but more detailed in the description of the projects profiled is the DOE High-Performance Building Database. Nearly 100 different high-performance buildings are identified with their energy budgets (in kBTU/sq. ft, based on actual metered performance) provided. Each sustainability strategy for the building is described in detail in the project report that is on public file.

Another resource is the DOE Building Energy Data Book which breaks down energy use by fuel type, occupancy and size for residential and commercial buildings.

These other resources may not be as convenient as the highlighted software, but you can't beat the price!. And other resources are very likely available online.

Puget Sound Chapter’s Focus on Energy Efficiency & Sustainability – 30 Years Ago

Puget Sound Chapter’s November 2007 meeting will feature ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer Ron Jarnagin speaking on net zero energy buildings. ASHRAE’s leadership and Puget Sound Chapter's participation in promoting energy efficient and sustainable design is not new.

Members of Puget Sound Chapter have shown leadership in energy efficiency at the local and national level for more than 30 years. The following is a brief glance at chapter activities regarding energy efficiency and alternative energy, as told by Punch List newsletters of the 1970s.

Going into the Energy Crisis

Sept 12, 1973 - “Energy conversation (and that word is not misspelled) is all there is today” said Erlinger Hallanger of Honeywell’s Building Automation Division. As speaker at the September meeting, Hallanger said “we need to get building energy use out of the talk stage and into some definite action”. He commented that “the control industry is primarily a bunch of hardware peddlers bidding on specs which result in only minimum performance”. While our past solution has been to find more energy, Hallanger claimed that it is now time to get better energy use by improving the design of HVAC and lighting systems and integrating their control. Hallanger pointed out that future sources of energy, except the breeder reactor, are very vague. Geothermal energy is available only in some very small areas, and solar energy has the very real problem of storage.

Addressing Impending Legislation

May 15, 1974 - At the May chapter meeting a panel representing members from both ASHRAE and IEEE discussed impending energy legislation. The forum was titled “Design and Evaluation Criteria for Energy Conservation in New Buildings, or The Octopus and You”. Panelists agreed that legislation was imminent at all levels, from local building codes to national policy, and the regulatory octopus could entangle us all. The panel concluded by calling for support to the technical committees providing guidance for legislation.

Panelists representing ASHRAE and IEEE admit "the regulatory octopus could entangle us all" in their discussion of impending energy conservation legislation at the May 1974 Puget Sound Chapter meeting.



Nov 15, 1978 - Bob Johnson, Chairman of Puget Sound Chapter’s Energy Committee, and other members of the committee presented a review of the City of Seattle’s proposed energy code at the monthly workshop to a standing room crowd.

Evaluating Alternative Resources

Sept 10, 1975 - “Wind Energy Machines and Application” was the meeting topic presented by Robert Wilson, professor of mechanical engineering at Oregon State University. Professor Wilson spoke of the $12 million in federal funding allocated to wind power research in 1975. He indicated expensive gearing units and short rotor life were major drawbacks to wind energy being an attractive form of alternative energy. According to Dr. Wilson, the maximum useful life of a rotor set was 1,500 to 5,000 hours. At the end of his presentation, price lists for several wind turbine units were distributed, along with calculated cost per installed kilowatt and according to the October 1975 Punch List, “bargains were missing”.

Nov 12, 1975 - The monthly chapter meeting topic was “Design Criteria for a Residential Solar Heating System” presented by Harry Kier of Solarthermics Corporation. Kier indicated “the solar heating industry is in a similar condition today as that of the auto industry prior to the arrival of Henry Ford”. His presentation focused on a “solar furnace” that would store collected energy in a compartment containing 25,000 pounds of washed rocks. In Seattle, the solar furnace would provide an average daily output of 135,000 Btu.




Harry Kier, of Solarthermics Corporation, discusses the advantages of using a “solar furnace” for supplemental heating of Seattle residences.

Conservation Becomes a Resource

Sept 15, 1976 - Gordon Vickery, Superintendent of Seattle City Light discussed Energy 1990, a study conducted at the direction of Seattle City Council to identify Seattle’s energy needs through the year 1990. Consisting of eleven volumes and weighing 27 pounds, Vickery said “it created more controversy, I guess, than questions it was supposed to answer”. Vickery discussed Seattle City Light’s involvement with three nuclear plants and two alternative hydro projects, High Ross and Copper Creek. Regardless of the new sources of energy, Vickery said “the big thing that we are going to bank on and it’s gotta be one of the great gambles of all time, ah, as I said somewhere once, the City Council with the audacity of a river boat gambler has decided we are going to take a different course, and I hope it works because I think it’s right, and I’m talking about conservation”.

ASHRAE '08: Lessons Learned in Sustainable Design Highlighted in ASHRAE Roundtable



ATLANTA - New York City is home to some of the world’s best known green buildings and leading design firms that test new boundaries in high-performance, sustainable design.
In a special roundtable session at ASHRAE’s 2008 Winter Meeting, two of New York’s best-known owner/developer firms, along with the engineering designers who bring their projects to reality, discuss the challenges, opportunities and successes in delivering new green high-rise towers that add to New York City’s skyline and grace the covers of engineering trade magazines.
High-Performance Buildings: Lessons from the Leaders takes place 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 22, at ASHRAE’s meeting, Jan. 19-23, New York City. Registration is required to attend.
Learn about owner motivations, technical challenges, design choices and trade-offs, costs for these projects, and perspectives about whether the expectations set early in the design process have been met once the buildings are occupied.
“The building market is transitioning to high-performance green buildings,” Kent Peterson, ASHRAE president, said. “It is essential that ASHRAE continue to educate owners, contractors and designers on both the challenges and successes in delivering such buildings. This roundtable offers participants the chance to hear what it takes to provide buildings that perform and are environmentally responsible.”
