ARLINGTON, VA -- Three additional projects within the ARTI HVAC&R Research
for the 21st Century (21-CR) program have been released for bid:

*	State-of-the-Art Review of Whole-Building and Building Envelope
Simulation and Design Tools
*	State-of-the-Art Review of HVAC Component and System Simulation, and
Design Tools
*	Microchannel Heat Exchangers with Carbon Dioxide

Perspective bidders are instructed to access the 21-CR website
(www.arti-21cr.org) to download the work statements for these three
projects.  Mailed copies of the two request-for-proposals (RFPs) can be
obtained by contacting Glenn Hourahan (hourahan at ari.org) or Karim Amrane

These three projects join four earlier proposal solicitations that were
released in late-June/early-July 1999:
*	High Performance Heat Exchangers for AC&R Applications (non-circular
*	Energy Savings Potential of Flexible and Adaptive HVAC Distribution
Systems for Office Buildings
*	The Efficiency Limits of Water Vapor Compressors Suitable for
Air-Conditioning Applications
*	Investigation of the Causes of "Black Soot" Phenomena

In September 1999, ARTI will review additional research recommendations for
funding consideration.  It is anticipated that additional RFPs will be
released by ARTI in late-Fall 1999.

Monetary support for the ARTI 21-CR program is provided by the
Air-Conditioning & Refrigeration Institute (ARI), the Copper Development
Association (CDA), the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the Heating,
Refrigeration, Air-Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI), and the
Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES).

ARTI is a not-for-profit organization established in 1989 to undertake
scientific research in the public interest.  ARTI strives to be responsive
to the research needs of the HVAC&R community with an emphasis placed on
precompetitive investigations.  It is ARTI's role to provide guidance and
cohesiveness to research efforts while providing an umbrella for related
research by others.
