Determination of Frictional Losses for Fiberglass Ducts describes the design of an orifice plate measurement system for the testing and determination of frictional losses due to air flow in fiberglass ducts. The basis for the design came from ASHRAE standard 120P, "Methods of Testing to Determine Flow Resistance of HVAC Air Ducts and Fittings". This thesis also details a process of calibration for the orifice plate measurement system. Five different fiberglass duct materials were tested for frictional losses and a process was constructed for creating charts to determine frictional losses in various duct sizes and using various flow rate for each material. The friction loss charts that were created are contained with this thesis.
