Claim of US Patent No. 10,368,468

1. A ram air system for cooling information handling systems (IHSs) in a mobile data center, the ram air system comprising:a volumetric container having a plurality of exterior walls, with a first aft-facing wall and at least one second side or rear facing wall, the container designed for placement on a trailer capable of being moved in at least an aft-facing direction at a velocity that facilitates cooling air flow through the IT compartment;
at least one heat generating information technology (IT) equipment positioned within the container, the IT equipment comprising at least one IHS; and
an air intake opening placed in the aft-facing wall and which provides an air intake path for exterior air to ingress into the container at a high velocity to provide a flow of cooling air that cools the at least one heat generating IT equipment while the trailer is moving in the aft direction.
