Exploring On-Line Meteorological Resources in Engineering

Eva Barreira, Joaquim Gabriel, Isabel S. Carvalho, Maria Teresa Restivo, Vasco Peixoto Freitas


Meteorological stations are now-a-days used worldwide in many different fields: agriculture, civil engineering, thermal comfort, architecture, renewable energy, etc.

The Laboratory of the Building Physics (FEUP) in collaboration with mechanical department, has been, supporting on-line delivery of the data from a meteorological station. This system has been used since nineties with great success in teaching and researching activities support both, in Civil and Mechanical Departments and also shared internationally for wide use.

The numerous activities performed based on this on-line experiment motivated the authors to share some case studies currently used in Engineering curricula.
