Abstract:

A detailed computer study is presented of hourly temperature distributions at nine positions in cartons in four differently exposed storage dumps, in small isolated Abandon Ship Ration Cartons and at seven tarpaulin surface and carton surface positions. The observations were made during July 1955 at Yuma, Arizona, a desert area of extremely high solar radiation and ambient temperature. Continued demand for more detailed temperature distribution data at the other 40 positions measured, including interior cartons, small isolated cartons, and tarpaulin and carton surface temperatures, coupled with the present availability of sophisticated data reduction and computer facilities at US Army Natick Laboratories has prompted the much more detailed analysis reported herein. A mass of temperature distribution data in tabular and graphic forms is now available for all the positions studied, as well as the isolated small cartons and surface temperatures which were not heretofore studied.
