Research activities at the Laboratory of Thermal and Building Science (LTSB) include studying the production, transmission and use of heat, the quality of the indoor environment, the performance of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and the hygrothermal performance of building envelopes.
This expertise is applied to commercial and institutional buildings, and to industrial and controlled environment agriculture spaces.
LTSB members focus on the following areas:
- Heat and humidity transfer inside buildings (experimental testing, analysis, numerical modeling and simulation);
- Design, analysis and control of HVAC systems;
- Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) inside buildings;
- Solar systems;
- Thermal storage;
- Quality of the indoor environment (thermal comfort and air quality);
- Energy efficiency.
Join the LTSB team!
The mission of the LTSB research team is to train highly skilled researchers and personnel to improve the energy and hygrothermal performance of buildings through the analysis of real problems.
