Duct Fitting Database Becomes Mobile App Resource
February 10, 2011

The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineer’s (ASHRAE) popular Duct Fitting Database desktop application has become even more valuable as a smart phone app, allowing engineers to make complicated calculations in the field and receive faster results.

Developed for Apple’s iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, the ASHRAE Duct Fitting Database (DFDB) app allows users to perform pressure loss calculations for more than 200 HVAC duct fittings in both I-P and SI units.

This new application ensures that engineers in the field have instant access to the most accurate information without having to return to their office to perform calculations. The mobile app features dynamic illustrations of each design, allows for easy use on the job to do quick duct pressure loss calculations and the inputs can be adjusted by touch and installation is automatic.

The DFDB app is the second mobile app to be released by ASHRAE. The Society published the 62.1 app in the winter of 2010.

The ASHRAE DFDB app can be purchased through Apple’s online iPhone App Store for $19.99. This initial release of the ASHRAE DFDB app includes supply and common round fittings only, though subsequent versions including all of the remaining fittings will be released monthly. Those who purchase the app now will receive these updates as free upgrades.

This app was developed for ASHRAE by Carmel Software Corp., a firm specializing in the development of engineering and scientific mobile and tablet software applications.
