NEW CONCEPTS IN HEAT STRESS CONTROL AND PREVENTION

The problems with and causes of heat stress aboard Navy ships are reviewed. A major contributing factor is the lack of proper maintenance of heat-producing equipment, insulation, and ventilation systems. Navy design criteria for cooling of spaces often associated with heat stress, and as well as recent changes to the criteria on new ship designs are provided. The method for determining and measuring for heat stress is explained. Means of improving and modifying the current space cooling methods and use of induction cooling systems are discussed. The uses of various types of personal cooling suits and the presented with relative advantages of each type are reviewed.
