ducting

[′dək·tiŋ]
(geophysics)
An atmospheric condition in the troposphere in which temperature inversions cause microwave beams to refract up and down between two air layers, so that microwave signals travel 10 or more times farther than the normal line-of-sight limit. Also known as superrefraction; tropospheric ducting.

The FEA approach can then be used in future efforts to make the ASHRAE Handbook more comprehensive and to better evaluate the wide variety of HVAC ducting schemes in industry.
The bend should be located at or near the mid-length of the ducting. For lined ducts, insertion loss is defined as the difference in sound pressure at the termination between a straight duct and a lined elbow.
Intake ducting starts with the large main duct, which goes from the blower to the cooling coil, then to the flow control device (if there is one), and then to the distributor, which splits the airflow into a number of smaller pipes in a circle around the die.
These include leaking joints and seams and over-use of flexible ducting, which can't withstand high pressure and vacuum in the system and collapses.
Another major comfort for engineers comes from the simplicity of a system and the principles of fabric ducting are very simple indeed.
Fabric ducting, often referred to as a 'sock' consists of a material sewn into a specific shape--usually round, half round or quarter round--designed to inflate to shape under a static pressure of, typically, 80Pa.
Your home's duct system, a branching network of ducting in the walls, floors and ceilings, carries the air from your home's furnace to each room.
Crewe & Son, a specialty mechanical process contractor based in Buckeystown, Md., won the contract to supply the printing plant with a $1.1 million cooling system, after the printer rejected competing bids ranging from $2.5 million to $4 million that included up to 20 rooftop coolers and tons of sheet metal ducting.
Krupp also notes expanding use of TCD engines in U.S.-built light trucks as another entry point for 3D ducting in the region.
The test ducting consisted of 5' long sections with stiffening creases every 12" and a 1-1/2" angle support bars every 2'-6" running along the exterior of the 48" width of the cross section.
A blow moldable PPS aimed at ducting and other large 3D parts has just been launched by Ticona in Summit, N.J.
Another focus for blow molding is heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) reservoirs and ducting. These parts have long been blow molded as a cluster of individual hollow parts located behind the dashboard.
