Vacuum insulations of various types have been the subject of intensive continuing investigation for many years. In the early 1950’s, this effort was extended to the exploration of flat panel geometries to take advantage of the optimum space utilization possible with flat-walled shapes in selected cryogenic storage and distribution applications.
