The article provides information on the process of using dehumidification design for air-handling system in college campus buildings in the U.S. According to the author, the exhaust from the hot aisle of a server room can be utilized effectively for reheat. He added that to evaluate and design the most optimized system, it is important to study the airflow requirements and the sensible-heat ratio(SHR) for each of the spaces conditioned.
