Senior Design Competition Winners!

We have some great news, our UCF students WON this year’s Senior Design Competition.

This is from the press release, which you can read more on the ASHRAE website, here:

First place in HVAC Design Calculations is awarded to a team from the University of Central Florida, Orlando: Christopher Erickson, associate engineer, Universal Creative, Orlando; Ian Faulkner, mechanical designer, exp U.S. Services, Orlando, Fla.; DJ Marshall, mechanical engineer, TLC Engineering for Architecture, Orlando, Fla.; Richard Suarez, quality engineer, Rockwell Collins, San Diego. Calif.; Kristian Jack Szymanski, Coral Springs, Fla.; and Ju Young Yu, Winter Park, Fla. Their faculty advisor is Gabriel Vazquez, Ph.D.

The team’s objective was to design a high efficiency HVAC system with long life cycle, and excellent indoor air quality while maintaining cost effectiveness. They selected variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems with simultaneous heating and cooling and dedicated outdoor air systems (DOAS) with energy recovery. Other equipment included air valves for lab areas and high efficiency particulate absorption (HEPA) filters and exhaust fans to eliminate contamination.

Congratulations, guys, go knights!
