Abstract:

This report summarizes the results of a user survey for the Building Loads Analysis and System Thermodynamics BLAST program and presents a recommended plan for implementing BLAST in Air Force projects. General overall response to BLAST was favorable. However, users identified the need for improved user documentation, including a revised users manual and input booklet, and a detailed description of algorithms used in BLAST. A revised users manual and new input booklet now in the final development stages will enhance the systems ability. It was recommended 1 that BLAST be implemented throughout the Air Force immediately, 2 that an engineers manual for BLAST be developed, and 3 that an interactive input data processing system be developed for BLAST.
