    ASHRAE Research
    Since 1960, ASHRAE has sponsored research studies at universities and research firms. The
    results of these studies have been used to prepare chapters in the ASHRAE Handbook series;
    as foundational material in special publications; in the formulation of standards; to train
    university students as they prepare for service in the HVAC&R industry; and to spread the
    knowledge gained through presentation at Society Conferences and publication in ASHRAE
    Transactions or conference proceedings.
