Abstract : The feasibility of employing evaporative coolers in relieving thermal stresses in fallout shelters is investigated, and the effects of placing the devices at various points in a shelter ventilation system are compared. Forced ventilation rates using evaporative cooling are presented along with national maps of isoventilation contours. Adequacy curves of forced ventilation with evaporative cooling are also included.
