CALCULATIONS FOR MERCHANT SHIP HEATING, VENTILATION AND AIR CONDITIONING

The bulletin contains instructions to assist in designing a marine HVAC installation for a merchant ship. Detailed room and system design criteria are provided for the accommodation spaces and certain other rooms. The instructions include the detailed calculations required to determine both room and system loads. Typical HVAC calculations and forms are included to clarify the application of the data contained in the publication. The design is accomplished by establishing the heating, ventilating and cooling requirements for each space and then preparing a set of "load" calculations to determine how the requirements may best be satisfied. All space are covered with the exception of machinery and cargo spaces, with their special cooling and commodity ventilation requirements. These are beyond the scope of this bulletin. Protection duuring shipyard outfitting; Preservation removal procedure; Protection during shipyard testing period and, Preservation during long-term lay-up intended for delayed vessel delivery. Use of these guidelines will help anyone involved in boiler installation to develop the procedures which will assure that the boilers will begin their ultimate use in optimum condition.
