Determination of the water vapour resistance and thermal resistance of sample materials using a sweating hot plate by W. R Dyck( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes two independent sets of measurements of the water vapour resistance and thermal resistance of several textile materials being studied in a round robin evaluation of sweating hot plate (SHP) apparatus. The SHP was operated in a room whose temperature and relative humidity were controlled, and a wind tunnel was constructed to fit over the test surface to control the air flow over the textile sample. Once proper operating characteristics were achieved, measurements were performed on eight samples and the same textile properties were measured with devices more commonly used for making such measurements. These values are compared to those obtained using the SHP and differences are noted. Reasons for the differences are discussed along with the applicability of SHP testing to certain materials
A preliminary study of handwear by W. R Dyck( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A number of long-standing deficiencies in individual Canadian Forces clothing, and in particular handwear, have been identified. Clothe the Soldier (CTS) is a current project trying to overcome many clothing deficiencies, including those relating to handwear. Three of the five types of handwear, namely Temperate Combat Glove, Extreme Cold Weather Mitt Liner, and Mortarman Glove, have recently been the topic of several focus groups in order to determine the ideal characteristics of such handwear. Groups of army personnel, mostly dismounted infantry, commented on current deficiencies and gave their opinions on what was required
A Portable vital signs monitor for field use by Walter R Dyck( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes the development of a portable, microcontroller-based vital signs monitor for monitoring blood pressure as required in field scenarios, integrated with the capability of monitoring heart rate and body temperature continuously on casualties, even within a casualty bag. The design has taken into account the need for future expansion and ease in reprogramming the software, to reflect changing priorities with respect to which signs are to be monitored. A helicopter used in casualty evacuation was identified as a worst-case condition for exposure to ambient noise, and results of field trials under such a condition are reported
A Sphygmomanometer Cuff Clamp or Sphygmoclamp( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In the event of chemical warfare, medical personnel along a casualty evacuation chain require blood pressure measurements of casualties within casualty bags, without opening the bags because of possible further risk to the patient. This paper describes equipment and a method whereby this measurement can be made quickly and easily. (Author)
