The generally accepted concept of cooling tower performance was developed by Merkel [1, 2]1 in 1925. A number of assumptions and approximations were used to simplify the development of the final equation. Accuracy is sacrificed as a result, but modifications may be made in the application to minimize the extent of the resulting errors. The development of the final equation has been covered in many texts and references. The procedure, therefore, is well known, but it is probably not so well understood. One reason for this is that the authors have taken short cuts and omitted steps to arrive at the
final equation.
