Distribution System Modeling

Distribution System Modeling

Location: Auburn, Ala.

Client: Auburn University

Auburn University conducted a planned campus expansion study, which laid the groundwork for the future expansion of the chilled water distribution system and the conversion of the steam system to a distributed hot water system. Burns & McDonnell developed a utility master plan, recommending distributed heating and cooling infrastructure that is reliable and economical while also expandable to meet the university's anticipated future growth. The firm used comprehensive flow analysis and system modeling software to model both the hot and chilled water piping distribution systems.
