qualification test
a procedure employed for verifying the accuracy of the measuring techniques (temperature, airflow rates, duct heat calibration) employed in determination of the room heating effect. This qualification procedure is periodically employed in determining the room heating effect.
a monitored condition used to establish active or inactive status for a measured parameter.
quality-based sampling
a process for evaluating a subset (sample) of the total population. The sample is based upon a known or estimated probability distribution of expected values; an assumed statistical distribution based upon data from a similar product, assembly, or system; or a random sampling that has scientific statistical basis.
quiet air
condition in which the sound power level introduced in the frequency band of interest by the air supply alone is at least 10 dB lower than the measured sound power level generated by the air supply and the air terminal under test.

About ASHRAE Terminology

ASHRAE Terminology, a free resource, is a comprehensive online glossary of more than 3700 terms and definitions related to the built environment, with a focus on heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC), as well as refrigeration, building envelope, electrical, lighting, water and energy use, and measurement terms.

This searchable glossary was designed for use by engineering professionals but is also useful for architects, building owners and operators, educators, public officials, and homeowners.

The terms in ASHRAE Terminology have been assembled and defined and are updated on an ongoing basis by ASHRAE Technical Committee (TC) 1.6, Terminology. TC 1.6 is concerned with terminology, nomenclature, definitions, abbreviations, symbols, and the International System (SI) and Inch-Pound (I-P) units used in the fields of heating, ventilating, air conditioning, water heating, and refrigeration.
