Lifeboats are used as a means of evacuation from offshore structures and marine vehicles. Currently, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Lifesaving Appliances (LSA) Code does not specify thermal protection and ventilation criteria for lifeboats. The objective of the present study was to assess the thermal protection and ventilation rate of lifeboats for the Arctic environment. Two SOLAS approved lifeboats were used for model development: a 72-person lifeboat with engine off and a 20- person lifeboat...
