Abstract:

The effect of high temperature upon human performance is examined by means of a review and evaluation of the relevant literature. High temperature will be a problem for airplanes that fly at high speed. The sources of heat are friction of the aircraft skin with the air, cabin pressurization, waste heat from the power plant and other equipment, solar radiation, and possibly heat from the atmosphere itself. Standard procedures should be established for specifying the physiological, environmental, and psychological variables which are being studied. Author
