Abstract

This project explains how a working refrigeration model was designed, built in-house, and incorporated into a mechanical systems course within a construction management program to enhance student understanding of the basic refrigeration cycle. An explanation of how a need for the physical model was identified is included, with reference to student learning styles. Designing the model, securing funding for the model, and construction and integration of the model into the classroom is also presented. In addition, documentation of the benefit of utilizing the refrigeration model as a demonstration tool to enhance student learning in two separate courses is included and discussed. Future research and opportunities to utilize this model in other courses have also been identified.
