Well into the year-long program, four students from Cristo Rey Jesuit High School reflect on the Corporate Work-Study Program aimed at providing college-bound students with a professional work experience. (Learn more about the Cristo Rey students.)
In the Jan/Feb 2022 issue of Consulting-Specifying Engineer Magazine, ESD Senior Project Engineer Ben Olejniczak shares insights on a hot topic: evaporative cooling.
In his article, “How to know which evaporative cooling option is right,” Olejniczak says if deployed in the optimal climate and with the right design conditions, evaporative cooling can be cost-effective, energy-efficient, and environmentally conscious. He notes this type of cooling technology is an extremely versatile and effective air conditioning solution, but it also carries challenges for the designer to consider. The article outlines these as well as topics such as the thermodynamic principles of evaporative cooling, direct and indirect evaporative applications, design considerations, and water quality requirements.
In addition to being a contributor, Olejniczak was also named to the CSE Editorial Advisory Board in 2021.
Sharing his professional knowledge and technical expertise freely with other industry colleagues is one of the ways Ben works to further ESD’s mission to improve society through the built environment.
