Abstract:

The object of this research was to model an actual structure, Bullard Hall, in order to devise a more energy efficient means to control the internal temperature of that structure. The research included a study of all major thermodynamic forces acting on the structure, including solar radiation. Once the model was developed it was compared with the actual structure to determine its usefulness.
