Abstract:

An interdisciplinary engineering design study was conducted on the Undergraduate Pilot Training Simulator Facility. The following systems were selected 1 application of a truss and column system for maximum flexibility, 2 a more economical exterior wall section, 3 selective electrical distribution system for increased reliability, 4 high pressure sodium lamps for outdoor and high bay lighting, 5 a solar energy powered domestic water system, and 6 cooling load reduction of light bank and terrain board system. The use of the computer program ECUBE is demonstrated as a tool of analysis.
