AND PSYCHROMETRIC PROCESSES"
I have been
actively teaching this material around South Africa on behalf of
SAIMechE for the past two years. The interaction with you kind folk,
afforded by these occasions, has provided for me excellent
opportunities to reshape and ever-improve the presentation methods
It has now
attained the status of "respectable finality"!

taken a great interest in generating animated PowerPoint graphics (the kind of
thing you do when you have retired, and find there is a great load of data in
your head that you don't wish have go to waste). The material includes a full
voiceover (by me). When presented 'live' under the SAIMechE banner, it qualifies
attendees to 1 CPD point. (For that matter, I am now authorized by SAIRAC to do
my own independent presentations for a CPD point, as also "Refrigeration
Explained", a 2-day Course, for two CPD points).
'live' form "Psychrometrics and Psychrometric Processes" comprises a full-day
presentation (08h30 to 16h00 -- but with a lunch break)! Beyond a doubt, it can
be independently self-presented or group-presented wherever you may be, to great
advantage as a series of perhaps 1-hour modules, extending over several weeks.
presentation is an animated on-screen sequence with voice-over, with each slide
running automatically for a variable time in the order of one minute or so per
slide. It then stops, awaiting a mouse prompt. This allows discussion time,
‘breathing’ and absorption space, time for note-taking, and where applicable, a
working gap for the calculation examples. All the calculation examples are given
step-by-step, allowing each Learner to work that phase of the calculation, and
then to check his or her work by watching the ‘official’ version being played
material starts at entry level, and embraces a detailed and very graphic (I
hope) description of the all-important concept of saturation and atmospheric
humidity. The complete material progresses to an advanced
level of Psychrometrics.

then moves forward to describe a range of psychrometric processes, initially
heating processes, followed by cooling + dehumidification, then evaporative
cooling, extending to 2-stage evaporative cooling, humidification by steam,
desiccant drying, and enthalpy wheel description. All of these are
illustrated by real-life associated processes.
