Journal titleResearch Paper, Division of Building Research, National Research Council Canada
AbstractThis paper describes and gives the results of a comprehensive study of the heating and ventilation of a prefabricated Army arctic hut carried out in the field during the winter of 1950-51. It is considerably longer than the usual research paper despite the substantial condensation of the results which has already been made, and in addition is of interest to a limited number of the readers of any one scientific or technical journal. On the other hand it contains much valuable information not available elsewhere for those interested in the performance of camp-type buildings heated with space heaters. In view of this the Division has adopted the unusual course of issuing this paper in the Research Paper series even though it has not first been published elsewhere.
