Top 5 Consulting-Specifying Engineer articles, April 13-19

Were you out last week? Miss something? Here are the Consulting-Specifying Engineer ’s five most-clicked articles from last week, April 13-19, including articles about NFPA 92 standards, supplying power for electric fire pumps, designing effecient boilers, using integrated design to achieve net-zero, and the costs and risks of damper-based controls in kitchen ventilation.


1. NFPA 92 defines design, testing of smoke control systems

NFPA 92: Standard for Smoke Control Systems provides fire protection engineers with guidance for the design and testing of smoke control systems.

2. Supplying power for electric fire pumps

Power is a key element in ensuring a fire pump works in an emergency situation. This article touches on relevant fire codes and offers best practices to illustrate proper design of power for fire pumps.

3. Designing efficient, effective boilers

Several codes and standards regulate boiler specification, plus energy efficiency and efficacy of these boiler systems.

4. Using integrated design to achieve net-zero

Integrated design practices allow a middle school to achieve net-zero energy.

5. The costs and risks of damper-based controls in kitchen ventilation

Engineers must think in terms of total safety and optimal energy efficiency when designing kitchen ventilation systems of the future.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on, April 13-19, for articles published within the last two months.
