Title: Water Immersion and Re-Warming Facility of the Thermal and Mountain Medicine Division.
Author: Forte, V
Abstract: The water immersion laboratory (WIL) simulates cold and hot environments by changing the water temperature in a concrete vessel through a steam-driven heat exchanger and ethylene glycol-jacketed chiller. The desired temperature is precisely manipulated and controlled by pneumatic control values, which receive signals from transducers, and display temperature outputs for each sensor on the digital indicators at the control panel. The temperature is changed to desired protocol conditions for evaluation of human responses to cold or heat stress. The control system and supporting equipment are designed for sustained periods of operation.
