Presentation Transcript

### Transitional Shelter development

• Basis Proto type B

• floor size / usable space per person

• ventilation position

• meeting requirements wind & snowload > bracing

• constructing frame with L-profiles

• tent for 5 persons

• 3,5 m2 / person > 17,5 m2

• Question:

• Is this the footprint of the complete tent including porches or only the inner tent floor space?

### Transitional Shelter development

• Size frame Prototype B

• 5,15 x 3,23m = 16,65 m2

• = 0,85 m2 short

• If only inner tent: 14,4 m2 > 3,1m2 short

• LWET is 14,85 m2 inner floor space

• Should a transitional shelter, intended to be used for longer period, not have more space per person?

### Transitional Shelter development

• Increasing footprint to 17,5 m2 using 200 cm L-profiles

• New size: 3,54 (= + 31cm) x 5,06 (= - 9cm)

• Or:

• Floor space innertent = 17,5 m2 >

• New size: 3,54 (= + 31cm) x 5,45 (= + 30cm)

• Results:

• height of tent increases with 40cm to 310cm!

• strength profiles need to be recalculated!

### Transitional Shelter development

Foot print 17,5 m2

### Transitional Shelter development

• Creating adequate ventilation is important in any tent, but maybe even more in the Transitional Shelter.

• To keep the vents well supported and within the frame concept, the ideas from prototype A should be integrated in the final design.

• Depending on what size we go forward, we can go for different solutions:

### Transitional Shelter development

Foot print inner tent 17,5 m2

### Transitional Shelter development

Foot print full tent 17,5 m2

• Bracing the frame construction with cables is essential to meet the requirements on wind speed and snow load.

### Transitional Shelter development

Needed on the middle portal too!

It will restrict head space but can be integrated in a separation wall between man and woman compartments

• The L-shaped profiles need to be all the same in length and possibilities to connect to each other.

• The profiles have holes drilled in to bold the parts together.

### Transitional Shelter development

• Making the connection between the profiles in the different corners is worked out well in the prototype.

### Transitional Shelter development

Corner connection

### Transitional Shelter development

Roof bar connection

• The overlapping sections need not just a hole, but also sleeves to make connection possible.

• more expensive to make

• weakens the profile

### Transitional Shelter development

• 17,5 m2 for 5 persons > footprint complete tent or only inner tent?

• Height of 310 cm? Is this acceptable?
