Abstract
A statistical approach is taken to present and analyze large amounts of physical and radiometric temperature data for structural materials as well as weather data collected over a period of several years at sites in both the United States and Europe. Diurnal temperature curves are presented as a function of time-of-year, surface material type, and surface orientation. Empirical temperature prediction models for different surface types as a function of weather parameters are developed for a given set of data to demonstrate the utility of maintaining large temperature/weather data bases in support of first-principles thermal modeling.
