The objectives of the task order were to determine the effects of physical training in a cool environment on the tolerance of men for work in the heat, the effects of short-term heat-acclimation on the ability of men to perform prolonged work in the heat, and the effects of training and heat-acclimation on the sensitivity, rate, and distribution of sweat on the body surface and the distribution of blood in the lower limbs during leg exercise. Also included in this report is a comparison of mean skin temperature weighting formulas during different combinations of work loads and ambiant conditions as well as an evaluation of hyperthermic preventive techniques during prolonged severe exercise in the heat 3321C dbwb.
