Protective Clothing Simulation
Our Human Thermal Extension includes the ability to model clothing in certain environmental conditions. Clothing is applied locally for each individual body part so that simple or complex ensembles can be represented. A multi-node approach is used to represent multiple layers of clothing so that garment performance can be analyzed in-depth. A complete clothing database is included with the Human Thermal Extension; however, users can easily characterize their own fabric properties right within the application.
- Thermal resistance
- Evaporative resistance
- Local clothing area factor
- Heat capacity and lateral conductivity (optional)
