Abstract : Below-grade shelters in buildings with comfort air conditioning may be made more habitable by utilizing the air conditioning equipment to cool all or part of the ventilation air. The various types of air conditioning equipment are considered for their characteristics pertinent to operating under conditions of temperature and humidity higher than normal for comfort standards and how the systems might be modified to supply the conditioned air to a below-grade space. Computation programs are included to expedite the calculations of shelter conditions. (Author)
