Here is a section map for your convenience

Sleep Galley Utility Medical Laboratory Communication Garden Storage Shell

Each half of the habitat should have an area specifically for utility service. This double section is a standard sixteen (16) foot outside diameter with six (6) inch thick walls (fifteen (15) foot inside diameter). This is part of a living area that is normally isolated by pressure walls from the remainder of the craft.

A passage on the left leads to the utility room. This is a short-term storage area. This area contains water piping to the galley, restroom and laboratory. This is also the main area for heat transfer equipment see Thermal control. There is an air lock above the room for access to EVA equipment. The utility room passes through an air lock to the work area.

A passage on the right leads to a wash room. The wash room has facilities for general needs during rotation of the habitat and basic needs when the rotation has stopped.

This area will have radiation shielding to protect the inhabitants from radiation during solar flares. Water is supplied from a storage container in the upper portion, Thermal control (Heat rejection equipment) is located, with the wastewater collection, in the lower portion of this area. This will allow minimizing life support requirements during short term emergencies.

Technical data: The atmosphere is air standard content though less nitrogen is expected, temperature is 74 F and humidity is 50% typically, Utility room lighting for light work = 75 lm/ft2, rest room lighting = 30 lm/ft2, 475 BTU/man-hr. for moderate work.

See [Data] for the design calculations.
