Recently, owing to a diversification and expansion of the
research program into topical areas involving renewable and other energy
conversion systems, the Building Physics Research Program has been merged
into the Energy Systems Design Program. In this larger context,
building physics research falls into the energy conservation component of
more general energy system design and research.
This site is a companion to the Building Foundation
Research site and is devoted to
promulgating building research that is more general than the specialized area
of building foundations, specifically that pertaining to other parts of the
