Abstract:

At the request of the United States Army Natick Research and Development Command, NARADCOM the Center for Building Technology conducted solar heat load tests on five sections of M.U.S.T. air-inflatable, double-wall hospital ward shelters. The purpose of the test was to evaluate the effect of solar heat load, as simulated by infrared heat lamps, on various materials and construction designs proposed for use in the shelters. This report summarizes the results of the tests.
