Abstract:

Seven cooling techniques were investigated and analyses were made to determine how practical each technique would be if incorporated into a 100-man shelter. The techniques were as follows buried pipe grids using water as the heat transfer medium, a crushed rock heat sink using air as the heat transfer medium, vapor compression and absorption systems, well-water, ice storage utilizing mechanical refrigeration, compressed air, and liquid oxygen. Each system was examined with respect to the length of time it could be effectively operated, and its auxiliary requirements. None of the techniques appear to be satisfactory in all respects however, the use of wellwater is very attractive providing it is readily available at a cool enough temperature. Since power requirements are closely allied with cooling systems the problems associated with power supplies are discussed. The last section of the report is devoted to the total energy concept utilizing gas turbine package systems.
