Top 5 Consulting-Specifying Engineer articles, May 26 to June 1

Articles about arc flash protection techniques, the 2014 40 Under 40 Winners, the costs and risks of damper-based controls in kitchen ventilation, and smart building integration were Consulting-Specifying Engineer’s five most clicked articles from last week, May 26 to June 1. Were you out last week? Miss something. You can catch up here.


1. Criteria for selecting arc flash protection techniques, Part 3

A variety of arc flash mitigation systems and active arc flash resistant switchgear are available to boost protection against arc flash incident energy.

2. 2014 40 Under 40 Winners 

The seventh annual 40 Under 40 award winners are a dynamic bunch with the future of the industry in their sights.

3. 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.

4. Smart building integration

Historically, the facility management challenge has been to do more with less. System integration provides a solution, and offers an opportunity to lower costs and achieve greater efficiencies.

5. Criteria for selecting arc flash protection techniques, Part 2

Conducting an arc flash study to identify hazards and proper PPE and tools is critical in reducing the risk of arc flash incidents.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on, May 26 to June 1, for articles published within the last two months.
