Abstract Archives
Abstract Archives

The Abstract Archives are a member benefit consisting of an online index of almost 7,000 abstracts of papers and publications from ASHRAE. It is a useful tool for identifying many papers and articles that are not available through the online bookstore. Each entry contains a full abstract and citation of any one of the following: ASHRAE Transactions Papers, ASHRAE Journal articles, ASHRAE Cosponsored Conference Papers and ASHRAE Books.

Use the Abstract Center to search for papers and authors published between 1980-1997. Simply select the complete range of years (1980-1997) or a specific year from the drop down list of search areas and enter your search terms. It is not necessary to enter the terms in any specific order. The system searches all fields in an abstract entry to match the terms that are entered.

Once you have found the item(s) that you are seeking, contact ASHRAE Customer Service to purchase a scanned copy of the item that will then be emailed to you.
