ASHRAE Technical Activities Committee (TAC) and the Technical Committees

Prepared by ASHRAE’s Technical Activities Committee

2013

For further information, please contact the Manager of Research and Technical Services at ASHRAE Headquarters


Ashrae has four types of committees whose focus is primarily on technical information

ASHRAE Has Four Types of Committees Whose Focus is Primarily on Technical Information

  • Technical Committees (TCs)

  • Task Groups (TGs)

  • Technical Resource Groups (TRGs)

  • Multidisciplinary Task Groups (MTGs)


What is an ashrae technical committee tc

What is an ASHRAE Technical Committee (TC)?

  • Group of volunteers who provide the Society with expertise in a specific field or subject.

  • TCs start as a Task Group (TG) when a new technical area develops that is relevant to the Society.

  • TCs are typically long-lived committees.

  • TCs are by far the most numerous of the various technical groups within ASHRAE.

  • Members represent diverse backgrounds:

    • manufacturers

    • consultants

    • researchers

    • universities

    • utilities

    • regulators

    • contractors

    • government

    • others

Tcs tgs trgs and mtgs participate in five key areas of the society

TCs, TGs, TRGs and MTGs Participate in Five Key Areas of the Society

  • Research

  • Standards

  • Handbooks

  • Program (TRGs have limited responsibilities)

  • OtherTechnical Activities


Ashrae research is initiated monitored by tcs tgs trgs mtgs

ASHRAE Research is Initiated & Monitored by TCs/TGs/TRGs/MTGs

  • Identify needed research

  • Develop research work statements

  • Evaluate proposals

  • Monitor the research project

  • Ensure results are disseminated to the Society


Many tcs tgs participate in the standards process in ashrae

Many TCs & TGs Participate in the Standards Process in ASHRAE

  • Primary responsibility for document development lies with Standards Project Committees (SPCs)

  • TCs provide liaisons to these committees

  • TC members can serve on Standards Project Committees

  • TCs may be asked to provide concurrence with non-ASHRAE standards (such as those developed by ASTM or ISO)


Handbook chapters are written by the tcs tgs trgs

Handbook Chapters are written by the TCs, TGs, & TRGs

  • TCs, TGs & TRGs are assigned chapters consistent with their expertise/scope

  • Most TCs & TGs have standing handbook subcommittees to write and revise chapters; a TC may be responsible for multiple chapters.

  • TC responsibility for chapters is noted in the Handbooks (as are major content contributors)


Tcs tgs develop programs for the ashrae conferences

TCs & TGs Develop Programs for the ASHRAE Conferences

  • The committees can suggest topics and sessions for presentation

  • Technical & Conference Paper Sessions (Symposia)

    • Paper sessions on specific topics that are published in ASHRAE Transactions

      • usually initiated by TCs or TGs

      • reviewers are usually from TCs, TGs, or TRGs

  • The program sessions at the winter and summer meetings could not happen without the TCs!


How to get involved in tcs tgs trgs and mtgs

How to get involved in TCs, TGs, TRGs, and MTGs

  • Cruise the ASHRAE home page and see what the TCs are doing

    • TC scopes available for all

    • Many TCs have homepages

    • E-mail the secretary or chair about your interest

    • Can apply for provisional corresponding membership directly with ASHRAE

  • Attend Society meeting - TCs, TGs, & TRGs meet at the Winter and Annual meetings

  • Look over the list of TCs, TGs, & TRGs to see which are most relevant to your interests and expertise

      • Submit program ideas to committee

      • Review handbook chapters for committee

      • Submit research ideas to committee

      • Provide webmaster services to committee

      • Other ….

  • Sections are groups of TCs, TGs, & TRGs formed and organized by TAC according to fields of interest or for administrative purposes

  • Section Heads are members of TAC designated by the TAC Chair to supervise TCs, TGs & TRGs assigned to a Section

  • By design, MTGs span several sections and are separately organized
