The author of this research will explain and demonstrate the meteorological concepts at work when glycol based and other kinds of fog solutions are used for special effects in the theatre. She will accomplish this by measuring the atmospheric data inside of the building, determining the existing air circulation patterns, and synthesizing that data into multiple approaches to creating a certain effect with fog. The desired effect is the illustration of the movement of an air parcel throughout the Carol Belk Theatre. The researcher will test multiple methods of moving the fog, including the use of Dyson bladeless fans, which will be acquired through a grant from Dyson. The method proven to work best will be explained and demonstrated during the Spring 2015 Undergraduate Research Symposium.
