Abstract
Conductive heat transfer to the floor of a single walled tent was examined experimentally and empirically. A heated, Canadian Forces, 5-Man, Arctic Tent was used to measure heat flow rates to the floor, as well as air temperatures and air velocity near the floor. The measured conductive heat flow rates to the floor of the tent were compared with predictions based on empirical correlations from problems of similar yet different geometries.
