Using the daily accumulation method, each day from April 1 to April 15 would have a degree-day total of 0, while each day from April 16 to April 30 would have a degree-day total of 4, for an April total of 60 degree days.
The sampling commenced at 5 day intervals from hatching after 349th degree-day (DD=water temperature, degC, x age, days post hatch) and repeated at 395, 440, 484, 529, 574 and 618 degree-days.

Four subtasks are included: 1) A building Markov deterioration model is established based on building condition assessment through which the practical building service lifetime is estimated; 2) The ambient temperature variation is simulated using Markov Chain by examining the transition of the degree day level; 3) The annual energy consumption distribution for each possible combination of building condition and degree-day level is projected through neural network technique based on a measured dataset; 4) The transition between the possible energy consumption state (i.e.
