Abstract:

This report deals with the development, thermal properties, and implications of research provided by certain models and thermal manikins used by thermal physiologists and clothing researchers. Particular attention is given to the heat and mass transfer properties of chemical protective overgarments from the United States and other NATO countries. The focus is also directed to the hierarchy, application of coefficients generated from the use of various copper models and thermal manikins, and the further development of operational and rational thermoregulatory models used for prediction of heat strain useful in protective clothing and military systems.
