The Bronswerk-Amersfoort Research Center in Holland is carrying out basic studies in marine air conditioning systems which can be utilized by shipbuilders. Facilities are available for simultaneous or individual comparison of factors which influence the thermal environment in ships, including a test room with variable dimensions within a 6 x 10 x 3.5 m module. A varied range of climates can be simulated inside the test room and outside temperatures ranging between minus 30 and plus 70 C are available. The effect of sunlight can also be measured where this is applicable. Measurements cover air speed and temperature, temperatures of surfaces, heat flow through the walls, sound levels, vibration, air pressure and air flow patterns. All measurements are fed directly into a computer for constant analysis and correlation of any parameter.
