Abstract : The authors have pioneered in systematizing the material obtained from laboratory and full-scale studies of measures for maintaining in unfrozen condition the reservoirs with the aid of the heat from deep water; they have shown the physical character of the methods for utilizing the deep water heat. General descriptions have been given of the means for combatting ice and the basic systems of various installations; also included are the rough calculations of measures used to maintain the open reservoir basins at negative temperatures. The authors have reviewed certain questions involved in the theory of operation of pneumatic units and flow-forming devices; descriptions are given of certain designs for operational pneumatic installations in the USSR and abroad, including the experience gained in their operation, along with their advantages and disadvantages.
