Abstract : The Trace 600 program was used to generate the heating requirements for each of the building types surveyed during the field study. The data produced from the program was based on several conditions that will be explained here. The weather data for the simulation was based on standard weather tables in the Trace Program for the Augusta area. The design outside dry bulb temperature was 230F, and internal loads such as people, lights, and miscellaneous equipment were not considered. Ventilation and infiltration were considered. Ventilation was defined as 15 cfin/person, infiltration for heating purposes was defined as 0.1 cfm/sf. The report produced heating requirements for the building hourly for five day type conditions. Design, Weekday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. The only one column from each building type was selected for the analysis and reporting process. This day type was usually the weekday column. The worst case condition was selected as a conservative approach to providing requirements that may tend toward the high side. Particular attention was paid to the values to assure that the data produced a smooth curve with few spikes and valleys. The information for all twelve months was transferred to Table 3C or 4C for further data reduction. Appendix I contains the Trace output heat load data for Building 25910, North Central Utility Plan Appendix II contains the Trace output data for the South Central Plant Building 25330. The data was used to accumulate the hourly load requirements on each of the two central utility plants.
