Abstract:

This report describes the redesign of the Armys T-5 Arctic Building for use as a barracks in polar regions. The modified building is 28 feet wide, has a 9-foot ceiling, and is expandable in length on a 4-foot module. A prototype 28- by 56-foot building was evaluated for its suitability as the basic building for the temporary polar camp developed by the Laboratory.
