Ventilation (the V in HVAC) is the process by which clean air (normally outdoor air) is intentionally provided to a space and the stale, overheated or polluted air is removed. Ventilation includes both the exchange of air to the outside as well as circulation of air within the building. It is one of the most important factors for maintaining acceptable indoor air quality and may be accomplished by either natural or mechanical means.

The design and selection of ventilation system is a complex process which should involve professionals familiar with 'comfort' or 'hazard' control. In many cases improper design could result in the 'sick building' syndrome and in many industrial applications can be hazardous to the health of the worker.

This course provides some practical design considerations for the ventilation systems and their components. A dedicated section is included to cover industrial ventilation, which discusses the principle techniques and regulatory information for the prevention of hazards.

The recommendations presented in these sections are the basic guidelines and prudent practices. This course is aimed at mechanical and HVAC engineers, architects, building designers, contractors, civil estimators, energy auditors, facility managers and general audience.
