ITDG Stoves Project Recent Publications

 

One or both of the following publications are being circulated with this issue of Boiling Point to certain of our readers.

'THE SARVODAYA STOVES PROJECT : A CRITICAL REVIEW OF DEVELOPMENTS 1979 - 82'

by M Howes, S Joseph, Y Shanahan, W Stewart and H Navaratne.

ITDG has been closely associated with the stove programme run by Sarvodaya in Sri Lanka. Bill Stewart was involved from the start of the programme as a VIA volunteer, before becoming the ITDG field officer and spending a large part of his time in Sri Lanka. Stephen Joseph and Yvonne Shanahan have also made several visits to Sri Lanka over this period to assist in all aspects of the programme, from testing and stove production, to monitoring and evaluation.

 

'A COMPUTER MODEL TO EXAMINE THE EFFECT OF COOKING METHOD ON THERMAL COMFORT LEVEL' by Stephen Joseph and Jeff Kenna.

It is claimed that massive mud stoves, once they have heated up, actually keep the house or kitchen warmer than an open fire. This claim has yet to be substantiated scientifically.

This computer model (in BASIC, suitable for microcomputers) was commissioned with two aims - to enable the determination of the likely change in comfort levels which would occur if a new stove was introduced; and to determine the room and radiant temperature experienced in the environment of an open fire, and of the following types of stove - massive mud, small mud and small ceramic.

Those who would like a copy should write to the ITDG Stove Project (address on front cover) and send 1.00* (for the Sarvodaya report) or 1.50* (for the computer model) to cover postage and packing.

* or US$ equivalent at current rate of exchange. Preferred payment by International Money or Postal Order.
