Animation credit: Caroline Raines and Andrew Marsh

To activate animation click on the forward and backwards buttons or select one of the numbers.  For additional support visit our visitor services page.

Caption: This animation shows the passive loading of a building using short wave solar energy. Electromagnetic energy is absorbed and converted into heat energy where it conducted to the underlying mass and released it to the space as re-radiated (emitted ) as long wave radiant energy and convective currents.
