To obtain criteria specifically applicable to Bachelor Enlisted Quarters BEQ, the Naval Facilities Engineering Command NAVFAC requested that the Civil Engineering Laboratory CEL, Port Hueneme, CA, conduct a detailed investigation, using metering the recording insturmentation in recruit- and service-type BEQs in northern, southern, and tropical climates. From data thus obtained, CEL could develop criteria for the sizing in new BEQ installations of domestic water heaters and hot water storage tanks to cover a wide range of climatic areas. This report covers work done by CEL in this investigation. The resulting design criteria are presented for each type of BEQ as a series of curves, showing required heater recovery as a function of storage tank volume with inlet cold water temperature as a design parameter. This approach permits the designer to examine trade-offs between heater recovery and storage volume so that a minimum-cost installation can be selected.
