Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to develop the necessary design information for the development of a portable, gasoline-fired, radiant heater to keep personnel and equipment warm in the Arctic environment. The heater is required to adequately heat a space 8 feet in diameter located from 4 to 10 feet from the heater, at an ambient temperature in the range of 0 to -50F and winds up to 20 mph. Focusing of the radiation emanating from the heater is considered essential to maintain high heating rates at these distances.
