Abstract

Apparatus intended as a teaching aid for studying the thermal efficiency of buildings comprising a scale model of a building or buildings with sensors that monitor the internal and external environments of the model building. The models temperature may be monitored by way or infrared thermography. Insulating layers can be added and removed to walls, roof, windows and doors in a modular, interchangeable manner. The thermal environment can be controlled by way of heating or air-conditioning systems and wind circulation and solar radiation can be simulated. The heating and cooling can be computer controlled. The model may be housed in a chamber that may have a removable cover or a handle for transportation.
