Engineering Design Handbook - Environmental Series; Part IV - Life Cycle Environments
This handbook presents information on the environment to which Army materiel is subjected during its life cycle. It is directed to the materiel design engineer (l) to alert him to the multiplicity Of environmental effects on materiel. and (2) to provide him with sufficient information to identify specifie environmental etfects that require more extensive analysis. ne emphasis in the chapters that follow is on the totality of factors characterizing a climate. on the totality of effects experienced by classes of materiel. and on the totality of thetor combinations experienced in the life eyele separated into logistic and operational phases. nat the presentation is incomplete reneets on the limited uvuilubility of information on life cycle environments and on practical limitations on the recovery Of this informa- tion from diverse sources. ms handbook is Purt Four Of the Environmental *ties Of Engineering Handbooks. Part One. Basic Envbonmental Concepts, introduces the series. Parts Two und ntree provide extensive information on environmental' factors taken singly. and Part Five provides u glossary. Although this series is coordinated. each purt muy be employed separately. nere is. therefore, a desirable degree of overlap in the contents, although the objective Of each of the handbooks is distinct from the others. For exumple, a pervasive environmental factor may be dig- cussed for different purposes in a number of chapters; e.g.. temperature is the subject of One chapter in Part Two where it is treated as a distinct and is treated in other chapters in Parts Two and nree where its ;tions with other factors are brought out.
