Abstract

To accurately simulate human physiology and thermal comfort, certain human physiology and comfort models categorize the human body into multiple body parts. Most of these body parts are normally clothed, which must be quantified in the simulation. However, existing databases of clothing evaporative resistance only characterize the evaporative resistance for the whole body and not individual body parts. This means that each body part has the same level of clothing evaporative resistance. In this research, we measured local clothing insulation and evaporative resistance. Here, we present the local thermal characteristic values as well as the values for the whole body.
