Abstract:

The Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory made a survey of available information on recent developments in thermoelectric devices and techniques. It was determined that the efficiency of existing thermoelectric materials was too low to merit recommendation of their use for equipment equivalent to existing Bureau of Yards and Docks catalog items. However, commercial thermoelectric generators are available which could satisfy small power requirements in remote locations where conventional power sources are not available and where efficiency or initial cost is not a prime consideration.
