Abstract:

The magazine air temperature records from CAG, CA, DDG, DLG, and DLGN type ships have been statistically analyzed to obtain the probable thermal exposure to be found on these type ships. The information is divided into the temperature expectancies for the 03, 02, 01, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 deck levels as applicable. Effort has been made to eliminate information from compartments influenced by the engine room. This report includes 71,016 data points from the six ships. The ships were all assigned to the 7th Fleet in this time frame.
