Begins with a brief review of the origins and early history of cooling towers and finally brings together the variety of terms in the industry into a uniform system of terminology. 

Facts accumulated as a result of laboratory testing together with full-scale tests in the field provide the basis for the methods described in the book. Provides easy to use combination of steps in which to incorporate the Merkel theory. English-American units of measure are used in the examples with metric equivalents shown in parentheses. 

Appendices contain tables of appropriate constants and conversion factors for use with SI (le Systeme International d’Unites). This guide is of great benefit to cooling tower users, operators and plant designers.
