Abstract:

The complexities of the effect of variables, in particular moisture, on thermal insulation of cold weather clothing are introduced. A literature review of the methods for measuring heat transfer, moisture diffusion and combined heat and moisture transfer is presented. The effects of variables on heat transfer and moisture diffusion are reviewed in detail. The theoretical equation for combined heat and moisture transfer is derived, and compared to experimental results of various workers.
