  nice one! concord
i was at http://engineering.concord.org/ht.html

Question:
is it possible to examine the source codes? That will be a new level of learning that Ejs currently affords.

For ur consideration:
in terms of instructional design, u may want add to the "r" and "t" keyboards, i think i was like stunned for a while, like most beginning learners trying to figure out how to use the applets.
 (http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=1379.0;attach=1620)"play" and (http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=1379.0;attach=1621)"reset" seems suitable cos I am used to media players mental models.

even without words, it has meaning

Again, the web site has changed to http://energy.concord.org. This web site hosts a new project that focuses on energy science and technology. We are developing the Energy2D applet that can be used to simulate fluid dynamics and heat transfer, and the Energy3D application that can be used to sketch up buildings and then study its energy performance.

All calculations are done by solving the heat equation coupled with the Navier-Stokes equation.

Your point is well-taken. We are just starting to develop Energy2D and Energy3D. Lots of work need to be done for the user interface. We basically will use a lot of AJAX to build UI for applets.

I am all in favor of solar house..simulations...appliances..interactivity etc: you guys are doing good!
but I have a kind of reservation..
As I am going through -*-solar training-*-..I am realizing with the passage of time that solar appliances OR panels etc can be damaged through severe & wild weather conditions..like rain, thunder storm etc..
I am asking..is any one thinking in this direction..how one can weather proof solar houses?
Any update or development in this area OR I am thinking like a paranoid.
OR we are at the mercy of wild mother nature.

I am impressed by the quality of information on this website. There are a lot of good resources here.
I am sure I will visit this place again soon.-*-

There are the best solar plane available here.

I think this is the good information here.

You guys have really done commendable job..Solar house is ideal in today's situation and I really appreciate your effort..
