Welcome to the Thermal Lab

The two Thermal Labs at the University of Texas at Austin are an outdoor testing facility for state-of-the-art research on innovative façade design. They make the consideration of both fully and partially air conditioned rooms possible; in order to simultaneously evaluate the energy demand, room climate conditions, and daylight provision of different façade variants.

We also monitor on campus weather conditions.

We are located at West Mall Building (WMB) 4.126 with the geographic coordinates N 30.285°, W 97.741°.
