Abstract:

The report summarizes the work in connection with a study on predicting high temperature inside cargo containers and presents, in detail, information on tests conducted at a test center in the Panama Canal Zone. Included are meteorological data provided by the Tropic Test Center, temperature values recorded both on the surface and inside a CONEX container, and photographs of the test area. A comparison is made between recorded values and temperatures calculated by a computer program previously developed by the U.S. Army. Computer printouts are included as appendixes.
