Abstract
The primary shelters used by Canadian infantry units in winter are the 5 and 10-man arctic tents. The thermal insulation of a 5-man tent was measured in an environmental chamber, by a new method, using a thermal manikin. A variable amount of heat was added to the interior of the tent with electrical heaters to increase the sensitivity of the method. The contribution of the liner to the total insulation was then easily detected. The method will be useful in comparing tents for cold weather and for assessing the effects of design changes.
