A two-dimensional finite difference technique was used to estimate the heat transferred and stored in the soil and the resulting heat fluxes for ceilings, walls and floors for underground and earth bermed structures. The computed heat fluxes are presented for both the underground and earth bermed structures at varying soil cover depths and thicknesses of insulation based on weather conditions at Lexington, KY.
