SYSTEMATICALLY MEASURING THE TEMPERATURE & RELATIVE HUMIDITY OF CLOTHING MICROCLIMATE
LIU Li-ying (Navy Medical Research Institute, PLA, Shanghai 200433, China)
An experimental apparatus-hot plate was refitted, and this apparatus could deal with data by computer system. The temperature and relative humidity in microclimate of fabrics made from fibers with different levels of hygroscopicity were compared using this measuring system. In order to examine the precision of this measuring system, the measured results and predicted ones were compared, and there was a good agreement between experiment and prediction for the temperature and relative humidity of the clothing microclimate. The experimental results indicated that the measuring system could precisely measure the dynamical process of the temperature and the relative humidity for different fabrics.
