Wind Tool

David Coley & Noorullah Kuchai
This tool is designed to help you estimate the pull resistance required of the footing of a shelter to help the shelter survive a storm. Inside the tool (README tab) you will find some tips on how to make shelters more able to resist high winds, and we recommend you read it before using this tool. Armed with this information, you will be able to complete a pull resistance test as outlined in the supporting...

ShelTherm: A Simple Shelter Thermal Design Assistant

Noorullah Kuchai, Sukumar Natarajan, David Coley, Manuela Castro, Daniel Fosas, Kemi Adeyeye, Francis Moran & Zu Wang
This is a tool and a physics-based model (ShelTherm) of the heat transfer and air flows through simple structures. A state of the art heat transfer (balance) method is encapsulated within the tool designed to be used by humanitarian staff. The only input is a very simple description of the shelter, and the output being the time series of internal and external temperatures over an example summer and winter day. It is important to note...

Shelter Assessment Matrix (SAM)

Noorullah Kuchai, Stephen Lo, Dima Albadra, David Coley, Sukumar Natarajan, Jason Hart, Natalia Paszkiewicz, Kemi Adeyeye, Francis Moran, Richard Ball, Juliana Holley, John Orr & Manuela de Castro
SAM is a shelter design assessment tool. It lists the issues we have identified from our field works and, where possible, provides guidance in the form of a tool, a short PDF or a pointer to a report or academic paper. This guidance will be particularly useful if you are new to the shelter, or to a topic, for example, ventilation. It scores a shelter in terms of a series of 9 design criteria, for...
