Learning Windows For The Cooling Load of The Building

Faris M. Roufa
Technical College, Kirkuk, Iraq


The present research comprises the design of a scientific educational program by computer, it is represented by preparing a group of main windows and other secondary windows, this program was written via using visual basic language to educate students the multi-types of thermal cooling load sources and how to calculate it for different buildings for both the students and the designing engineer by using the equations and tables which were prepared for this purpose. This program consists of (15) main windows and (10) secondary windows for help, the first one is specified for the title of the program and the purpose of its preparing, the second main window until the eleventh are specified to enter the required data, while the main windows from number twelfth to fifteenth are specified to review the results as tables and graphs and to review a summary report about the peak cooling load of the building. The user can enter the secondary windows from the main windows which are specified to produce the help to the students or the users of the program about the meaning of the cooling load and its sources and how to calculate it in an explicit by using equations and the required tables.
