A Novel Model of Heat and Moisture Transfer in Human-Chemical Protective Clothing-Environment
摘要：A novel model was proposed for researching on the mechanism of heat and moisture transfer in the humanchemical protective clothing-environment system. The system was developed through integrating human thermal models, clothing models and the k-epsilon model. The modified two-node model, where the skin was segmented, was applied to determine the physical thermoregulation. A heat transfer model was employed as the clothing model. The k-epsilon model was chosen to compute the turbulent natural convective flows in the clothing microclimates. The predictions of heat stress obtained by the model coincided well with the published experimental data. This model is capable of predicting human thermal responses, which is essential for this safety assessment.
