Abstract : As a part of the Energy Engineering Analysis Program (EEAP), the feasibility of thermal energy storage at Rock Island Arsenal (RIA), IL has been studied in this report. The sponsor of the EEAP program is HQUSACE with Point of Contact (POC) being Mr. Dan Gentile, CEMP-ET. Mr. Tony Battaglia of Mobile District, CESAM-EN-DM, is with the Technical Center of Expertise for the EEAP program. The POC at Louisville District is Mr. Charles Lockman, CEORL-ED-MS, and the POC at Rock Island is Mr. David Osborn, SMCRI-PWE. This report was prepared by USACERL with Dr. Chang Sohn working as Principal Investigator and Mr. Douglas Anderson and Mr. Brian Boughton working as Research Assistants. The building load was simulated with the BLAST program by Dr. Rich Liesen of the BLAST Support Office at the University of Illinois. Bldg 350 is a 6-story administration and computer center with 446,477 sq ft of floor area, which includes a computer area with extremely high internal load. Bldg 390 is a 4-story administrative building with 150,845 sq ft of floor area. This study includes a review of current cooling systems, the feasibility of storage cooling systems, and identification of other energy conservation opportunities related to cooling these buildings.
