Thermological comfort assessment

Thermophysiological comfort assessment

Professional workwear has to protect the worker and allow him/her to work under comfortable conditions (temperature, humidity...).

The use of a thermal and sweating mannequin with movement simulation allows to predict comfort indexes in conformity with reality.

Thermal features

Thermal and sweating mannequin

  • thermally conductive Carbon Fiber-Epoxy shell
  • standard garment size M
  • 26 independent thermal zones
  • distributed heating wires and wire sensors for accurate control and measurement of skin temperature to +/- 0.1°C
  • water compliant for use with wetted skin
  • standard joints at the shoulders, hips, knees, elbows, and ankles
  • mannequin walking mechanism (speed variable from 0 to 55 double steps per minute : about 70 meters/min)

Sweating mechanism

  • volumetric control of delivered sweat rate, selectable by mannequin region
  • network of pores over the mannequin's surface
  • removable fabric skin layer for water distribution by wicking
