ABSTRACT A mathematical model is developed to predict steady-periodic thermal behavior of glasshouses. The model is shown to predict temperatures of the internal air, plant canopy, and floor surface with reasonable accur-acy. The utility of the model is demonstrated through simulations predicting the effects of several potential glasshouse design modifications.
