Hold ventilation remains a subject of undiminished importance. There are some general rules for making the best use of modern ventilation systems, though deviations from the rules may sometimes be necessary. The Author gives some general information on the various types of ventilation system and their components, and presents some fundamental rules for using the systems. The rules are based on the "hold-meteorology" humidity diagram presented (in a 1977 publication) by K.E. Puls and H. Cuno. In this type of diagram, the area under the curve can be divided into six sections, each of which covers a range of hold and external air temperature and humidity conditions; in the present article, the method of using the diagram is briefly described, together with the action, appropriate to each section, required in the ship.
