View Full Version : Procedure to design a cooling chamber

08-11-2014, 06:27 PM
Hello everyone,

I am (mechanical) engineering student and my project is to design and build a cooling chamber. I decided to use vapor compression. In university we learned basic thermodynamics and heat transfer theory but were not taught HOW to actually design a refrigeration cycle.

Moisture in the chamber is preferred to be kept at a minimum.

Can anyone provide me with information (books etc) that shows (clearly) how to go about doing these calculations?

I can provide more information if needed.

Thank you.

I suggest you refer ASHRAE Refrigeration hand book and ASRAE Fundamental hand book. These may be there in your college library.
