Abstract:

The focus of this project is to improve the trade-off between water consumption and cooling efficiency in cooling towers used for heat rejection from various processes, including building HVAC loads data center cooling power generation and various other industrial purposes. Conventional wet cooling towers are a common infrastructure component at DoD facilities estimated at over 4000 individual towers, and each can be a significant consumer of water.
