Students Study Aircraft, Residential IAQ and Building Safety

Indoor Air Quality

Research to improve indoor air quality on planes and in homes and to protect occupants in government buildings has been funded by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).

Twelve students have been approved to receive a total of $100,000 through ASHRAE’s grants-in-aid program, which is designed to encourage students to continue their education in preparation for service in the HVAC&R industry.

The recipients were chosen by the Society’s Research Administration Committee at the 2005 Winter Meeting held Feb. 5-9. The grants are awarded to full-time graduate students of ASHRAE-related technologies. Fifty-five applications were received.

Results from the projects may be incorporated in the ASHRAE Handbook, which is the most widely used reference book in the HVAC&R industry.
