Market evaluation study : solar domestic water heaters for DOD barracks by Larry Windingland( Book )
2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
This study assesses the potential market for solar domestic hot water systems in DOD bachelor enlisted and bachelor officer quarters (barracks). The number and locations of existing and planned bachelor enlisted and bachelor officer quarters in the United States are analyzed, and the locations where solar domestic water heating is most feasible are determined. Life-cycle costs of providing solar domestic water heating systems are analyzed and the DOD market potential for these systems determined for varying system costs. The results of more than 120 one-year solar hot water heating system simulations are presented along with a dimensionless graph and methodology which can be used to estimate solar hot water heater performance for building loads and sites other than those studied. The potential markets for solar collectors based on varying system costs are presented. Results indicate that at an anticipated future system cost of $9/sq ft ($97/sq m) of collector the probable market for solar collectors is 4.4 million sq ft (409 000 sq m). Over a 20-year life, the potential savings resulting from application of this collector area is estimated to be 4.5 million barrels of fuel and $29 million. (Author)

Investigation of the interrelationship between direct, diffuse and total solar radiation by George Walton( Book )
2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
This report describes an investigation of the relationship between total solar radiation on a horizontal surface and its direct and diffuse components. It is based on radiation measurements taken in Champaign, IL in 1978. Good agreement was found between the observed data and the SOLMET correlation, which was published after this study was begun. This report recommends use of the SOLMET correlation for solar simulation programs. (Author)

The wasted generation by George H Walton( Book )
1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
More than half of the young men called up by Selective Service are so fat, maladjusted, or illiterate that they are rejected for military service. Out of every four youths summoned for the draft, two will pass -- mostly because the standards have been lowered enough to accommodate their flabby bodies and unlettered minds. Of the other two out of four, one will flunk a relatively primitive intelligence test, one of whose questions may be based on the sentence, "It was a small table." The applicant is then asked whether "sturdy," "round," "cheap," or "little" is a word most like "small." The other rejectee will flunk the physical -- probably because he is simply too fat. This book, by a man who saw this shameful story firsthand, reveals the shocking facts of a national scandal: Each year, reaching manhood in this prosperous nation, are nearly 1,000,000 young men who are physical or mental cripples. Over half of the youths who are shown to be illiterate in the intelligence test are eighth grade graduates. And 6 1/2% of them actually hold high school diplomas. How can a person complete 14 years of formal schooling and still be unable to read? How can a nation that boasts of its education system produce illiterate high school graduates? Colonel Walton pondered these and similar questions as a planning officer in the Selective Service national headquarters. A study he made first revealed the wide dimensions of the rejectee scandal. Now he is revealing the scandal to the readers of this book. Colonel Walton offers no easy solution to a problem so vast. First, he says, "We need to take a long, hard look at our home life, at public school health programs, at community recreational facilities, and at an educational system which allows boys -- and girls as well -- to waste year after year in schools which fail to teach them to read adequately or to do simple arithmetic." In this book, Colonel Walton does take a long, hard look at a society that is producing such a tragically huge human scrap heap. Bluntly, yet authoritatively, he makes recommendations that are bound to touch off controversies in many homes -- and, he hopes, in Congress itself. - Jacket flap
