j) Simulated shipboard environments.
Floors. Live loads should be calculated using a realistic estimate
of occupancy. Mechanical, telephone, and radio equipment rooms, radio
receiving rooms,, terminal equipment rooms, and equipment-supporting roof areas
should use 150 pounds per square foot (psf).
Partitions. Movable and relocatable partitions will be required in
all non-bearing applications.
Flooring. Raised flooring provides maximum flexibility and should
be used in lieu of trenching wherever practical.
Electronic Shipboard Equipment. Much of the electronic equipment
installed in training facilities is a replica of that used aboard ship.
Typically, that equipment is water-cooled rather than air-cooled. The project
BESEP must be consulted for the required information.
Non-Shipboard Electronic Equipment. Mechanical requirements for
non-shipboard electronic gear are given in Section 4.
Power Requirements. In most situations, the determination of power
requirements is straightforward. Usual power requirements are as follows:
a) Audiovisual remote control devices at lecterns;
b) Banked lighting with door and lectern control centers;
Central service cores to serve two or more classrooms;
d) Electrical services located so as not to interfere with movable
e) Service to accommodate training aids;
f) Open or closed-circuit television systems, including studio and
Emergency Power. Unless specified in the authorizing document,
emergency and no-break power shall not be provided.
a) The green-wire grounding system specified in NFPA 70 shall be
used in every shore training facility.
b) Consider supplemental grounding accommodations in accordance
with MIL-STD-188/124 and MIL-HDBK-419, as required for each case.
