Abstract : The ventilation systems in the Ml/MlAl battle tank, M60 battle tank, and the M2A2-M2A3 fighting vehicle were evaluated to determine their effectiveness as compared to ventilatory requirements stated in MIL-STD-1472C. Available ventilation test data was also collected and reviewed. Theoretical and actual ventilatory rates for the Ml/MlAl, M60, and M2A2-M2A3, are listed. Projected combustion product concentration build-up and purge rates have been determined under conditions of the several differing modes of ventilation capable by the battle tanks and fighting vehicles. Ventilatory requirements are recommended for the vehicles in accordance with ASHRAE Standard 62-1989.
