This training is intended to provide an overview and introduction to ductwork design and sizing, including the major components and materials, balancing and commissioning. The training is suitable for both trainee building services engineers and anyone else who requires a better understanding of ductwork systems and sizing, including the importance of correct sizing for energy efficient/low carbon operation of ventilation systems. This would include those involved in building services engineering and design, architects, installation and contracting, commissioning, and facilities managers. No previous knowledge of ductwork system design is required. In practice commercial ductwork sizing is usually undertaken with proprietary software which are not covered by this training.
Delegates would be expected to learn the following:
- The underlying concepts of duct pressures, resistance to airflow, noise and types of ductwork.
- How to design a simple ductwork system and size and select appropriate ductwork.
- An overview of how ductwork systems are balanced and commissioned.
- Have an overview of other components in a typical ductwork system including fan types, filters, dampers and room air terminals.
- Understand the building regulations requirements for energy and carbon emissions from ventilation systems.
Delegates would need to have a general understanding of building services including ventilation systems and an interest in learning the engineering principles of ductwork design. However, no previous specific knowledge of ductwork design is required.
