Research Interests:

David Beal has been a Research Analyst at the Florida Solar Energy Center since 1987. He has been Principle Investigator on several FSEC projects and has been involved in various building Science Projects including Radiant Barrier Technology, Roof Material Testing, Ventilation Studies, and Industrialized Housing. Currently David is working with Building America's Gulf Coast High Performance Affordable Housing Demonstration Project, and providing support to Building America's other partners; various Habitat for Humanity affiliates and manufactured housing builders. David has been responsible for instrumentation, monitoring and analysis of many projects and was integral to FSEC's early work on wall and roof systems, including radiant barrier performance that led to Florida energy code credit for the technology. Recently, he conducted experiments on the effect of various ground cover systems on the relative humidity under manufactured homes.
