Automated Thermal Control Attenuating Device

  1. 1. Student: Tyler Humphrey<br />Advisor: Dr. Michael Dancisak<br />Automated Thermal Control Attenuating Device<br />
  2. 2. Liquid Cooling/ Warming Garments<br />Most are vests and suits designed to control core body temperature1<br />Have been used recently to delay muscle fatigue and decrease heat injury occurrences of individuals working in extreme environments<br />CAMS developed sleeves or wraps used for particular body parts or muscle groups<br />EMS treatment of nerve trauma patients2<br />Lowers core temperature prevents apoptosis of nerve cells<br />Reduces cell death cascade in CNS<br />
  3. 3. Pre-Cooling and Intermittent Cooling<br />Precooling <br />Decreasing an individual’s core body temperature below 37 degrees Celsius before intense activity3<br />Usually for a long period (30 min-1 hr) of active cooling followed by a short period (10-15 min)of inactive resting before intense activity3<br />Increases time before an individual experiences heat stress5<br />Intermittent Cooling<br />Cooling in between periods of intense activity<br />Offsets muscle fatigue3<br />Lowers the concentration of Lactic Acid and HCO3 in muscles4<br />
  4. 4. LCWG Design<br />Uses two separate temperature controlled water reservoirs and pumps <br />Allows user to switch between two temperatures quickly<br />Each area of the suit has its own inlet and outlet hose<br />Allows each area to be chilled independently<br />Controlled by a series of solenoid valves connected to a manifold<br />CAMS Liquid Cooling Sleeve- Photo courtesy of New Wave Controlling Body Temperature May Fight Fatigue , Kathryn Hobgood 2009<br /><ul><li>Can be used for medical, labor, or athletic purposes

Future Direction of Project<br />Temperature history on control panel<br />Use of thermo-couple readings to develop a more accurate thermo-profile<br />Allows adjustments to be made depending on an individual’s therm0-profile<br />Digital Control of Chillers<br />Use of both Chilling units at the same time<br />Cooling one area while warming another<br />Medical/Surgical applications<br />
