Abstract:

An analysis is presented of the relationship between engineering factors of importance in tentage. Because the scientific literature on tentage is so limited, the analysis is qualitative. The purpose is therefore to provide a guide, rather than a textbook, for use in the design of tents and for guiding the selection of future RD projects related to tentage. Two appendices are included which are intended to be of direct use in tent design activities. Appendix A is a sample tent design checklist which includes the factors discussed in the text, and Appendix B presents a matrix which summarizes the degree to which the various factors are inter-related.
