Additional info: About the author:
Shan K. Wang received his B.S. in mechanical engineering from Southwest Associated University in China in 1946. Two years later, he completed his M.S. degree in mechanical engineering at Harvard Graduate School of Engineering. In 1949, he obtained his M.S. in textile technology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. From 1950 to 1974, Wang worked in the field of air conditioning and refrigeration in China. He was the first Technical Deputy Director of the Research Institute of Air Conditioning in Beijing
from 1963 to 1966 and from 1973 to 1974. He helped to design space diffusion for the air conditioning system in the Capital and Worker’s Indoor Stadium. He also designed many HVAC&R systems for industrial and commercial buildings. Wang published two air conditioning books and many papers in the 1950s and 1960s. He is one of the pioneers of air conditioning in China.
Wang joined Hong Kong Polytechnic as senior lecturer in 1975. He established the air conditioning and refrigeration laboratories and established courses in air conditioning and refrigeration at Hong Kong Polytechnic. Since 1975, he has been a consultant to Associated Consultant Engineers and led the design of the HVAC&R systems for Queen Elizabeth Indoor Stadium, Aberdeen Market Complex, Koshan Road Recreation Center, and South Sea Textile Mills in Hong Kong. From 1983 to 1987, Wang Published Principles of Refrigeration Engineering and Air Conditioning as the teaching and learning package, and presented several papers at ASHRAE meetings. The First Edition of the Handbook of Air Conditioning and Refrigeration was published in 1993.
Wang has been a member of ASHRAE since 1976. He has been a governor of the ASHRAE Hong Kong Chapter-At-Large since the Chapter was established in 1984. Wang retired from Hong Kong Polytechnic in June 1987 and immigrated to the United States in October 1987. Since then,he has joined the ASHRAE Southern California Chapter and devoted most of his time to writing.
