home weather

Map space-time-heat diagram of the home
  [vote for,

With modern fire simulation software and a current Moore's law computer, would it not be possible to map a home, to a very high degree, concerning heat flow. The calculating computer would , of course, have to be included as one of the variables.

All this talk of kettles, fridges and computers means there is a dynamic system of inputs and leaks of heat. Even human bodies and pets would add to the mix. Using a simulation to match the actual goings on in the home, lights, kettles open windows, a weather pattern description could be built.

This overview might allow some insight into where to plumb stuff or where more heat absorbant or reflective material is needed. The idea is that all heat sources are integrated in specific ways rather than a unit dropped into a space. This would be a level up from just making sure the home was heat tight or that the air con could evenly distribute.

So, in summary, not just which DVD player but how much extra heat has it to give and can it be plumbed into the childs crib.

       Would the computer and its sensors also be included in the energy budget ?

       You can get a free infra-red external camera scan by simply ringing the Police, saying you think there's place being used to grow cannabis and give your own address.   

       Remember to not do this if you are actually growing cannabis.

       There must be a mathematical advantage of knowning whether a set is/has itself as a member. I am guessing for proofs but here on the real world shop floor each member has to processed once to get the set of jobs done.   

       It would be a bit recursive to include the heat components of the simulated heat components on the included computer.   

       No, I don't think it would be a feedback loop. No sensors just max computer heat member in a flow direction simulation. For extra data, a person holding the infrared camera and the camera would be a one off member in computation.

       I think home weather would be very complex with all the heat inputs, cold sinks, living variables and the ranging variety on the otherside of the wall.
