Description: Report
Abstract: A Naval Weapons Center (NWC) thermal standard was installed at Fort Belvoir, VA, and monitored for a year. Extreme temperatures of 129°F and ll3°F occurred at the top surface and center of the thermal standard, respectively. Data were compared to thermal standard data from prior investigations. Methodologies involving data display, sampling strategies, and predictive capabilities were examined. The original predictive equation was examined, and it was found that a derivation was more suitable at Fort Belvoir, indicating that geographic and/ or climatic limitations to certain analytical methods could exist.
