  • Focuses on design and computational issues related to fixtures and armatures in hydronic heating installations, especially regulation valves, their selection, operating principle, types and construction
  • Discusses the types of regulation fixtures currently used in heating installations and describes the practical aspects of their selection
  • Presents the author’s analytical method for dimensioning a regulation, as well as an innovative design solution for a regulation valve without the limitations of the valves currently available on the market
  • Proposes new algorithms for calculating the valve authority, which have been verified and confirmed experimentally, and also cites the algorithms used to date, describing their limitations and the effect these limitations may have
  • Provides computational algorithms that make it possible to perform a comprehensive analysis of the regulation valve’s interaction with other elements of heating installation
  • Offers numerous computational examples of the selection of regulation valves and their operating parameters

About this book

The book focuses on design and computational issues related to fixtures and armatures in hydronic heating installations, especially regulation valves, their selection, operating principles, types and construction. The analysis is complemented by connection diagrams, drawings, photos of the valves and computational examples of their selection and operation parameters when used in a pipework and a controlled object, like a radiator.

It also discusses issues related to the so-called valve authority, one of the main parameters determining the quality of the valve regulation process. Further, it includes an extensive theoretical framework along with a detailed mathematical analysis and proposes new algorithms, which have been verified and confirmed experimentally. Based on this analysis, the book presents the author’s analytical approach for sizing a regulation valve, as well as an innovative design solution for a regulation valve without the limitations of the valves currently available on the market. Lastly, it introduces a new verified method of calculating the valve pre-setting.

Intended for engineers dealing with heating issues, scientists and students studying environmental engineering, energetics and related fields, the book is also useful for lecturers, designers, and those operating heating installations, as well as authors of computer programs for thermal and hydraulic balancing of heating installations.
