Abstract

The building system of a facility is composed of various types of M/E (Mechanical/Electrical) equipment. Systems supporting large installations with closely controlled indoor environments can be very complex. The building system design art has changed in a way that the fine form has not. The architect uses the same basic techniques that have been used for centuries. Meanwhile, the system design engineer has traded in board drafting and hand calculators for a computer and design software. This gives the engineer the capability to analyze libraries of data, perform mathematical calculations, and simulate integrated systems.
