Abstract:

THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM OF MAINTAINING POTABLE WATER TEMPERATURE IN AN ALL BUTTONED-UP COMBAT VEHICLE, WHERE THE TEMPERATURE CAN BE 20 TO 30 DEGREES ABOVE THE AMBIENT DEPENDS ON COMBAT ZONE WEATHER CONDITIONS. THE TWO EXTREMES CAN BE A DESERT WARFARE WHERE THE AIR IS VERY HOT, BUT DRY, OR A TROPICAL WARM ZONE WHERE THE TEMPERATURE HOVERS UNDER 100 DEGREES WITH A HUMIDITY NEARLY 10. TO ENCOURAGE CREW MEMBERS TO DRINK, A DESIRABLE WATER TEMPERATURE IS AROUND 70-75 DEGREE. GOOD INSULATION ALONE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO MAINTAIN THIS WATER TEMPERATURE. THE PHASE I RESEARCH PROPOSES TO ESTABLISH QUANTITATIVELY, THROUGH ANALYSIS AND EXPERIMENT THE FEASIBILITY OF APPLICATION OF A CONCEPT TAKES ADVANTAGE SOLID STATE COOLING OR HEATING DEVICES, AND THE EVAPORATIVE COOLING METHOD IS PACKAGED IN THE FORM OF A COOLED FINGER SUBMERGED IN THE LIQUID OF A THERMAL. THE SYSTEM USES VERY LITTLE ENERGY AND CAN BE MADE COMPATIBLE WITH THE VEHICLE POWER SYSTEM. PHASE II WILL INVOLVE THE PRACTICAL ASPECTS OF PACKAGING THE CONCEPT IN A MANNER TO PROVIDE A PRACTICAL DEVICE FOR THE DEMANDING SERVICES OF THE INTERIAL OF A CROWDED COMBAT VEHICLE ENVIRONMENT.
