AbstractThe whole problem of how to best heat a fallout shelter and what the actual temperatures would be under various combinations and locations of heaters warranted further investigation. At the same time, the variations in carbon dioxide concentration and how these were affected by temperature gradients presented a problem. The effects of using a good over an appliance to dissipate the heat and carbon dioxide in the summer were not known, nor the influence of a direct-venting flue pipe from the heaters to the basement air by means of a heat exchanger.
