Abstract : This report highlights a preliminary study on the anticipated problems associated with the use of standard, readily available equipment which may be used in protective shelters. The equipment under study consists of generators, air conditioners, air blowers, air filters, lighting fixtures, chemical toilets, and water pumps. The problems that need further investigation and/or testing appear to be equipment shock tolerance, the overpressure effect on operating engines, equipment cooling, and equipment maintenance. Other problems include the possible contamination of shelter atmosphere with toxic gases generated by the equipment, equipment fire hazards, radio noise, and audible noise that may be generated by the equipment. Suggested approaches to the solution of these problems are discussed and a general evaluation of equipment is given in tabular form.
