The area of cross-section required to furnish the necessary amount of air at a uniform velocity throughout of 700 feet per minute having been determined, the nearest larger corresponding size of duct was generally used. For instance, for room 28 58-inch section was required, and a 9-inch duct with 63-inch area was used. In some cases, however, the second larger size was thought suitable so as to give an excess, as in room 16, Fig. 1, where 48 square inches was required, and a 9-inch duct with an area of 63 inches was used.
