Abstract
The previous round-robin (RR) study on clothing evaporative resistance (Ret) has shown that the repeatability and reproducibility of clothing Ret measurements on sweating manikins were rather low. To further examine and enhance the measurement accuracy, a new strict but feasible test protocol was proposed and thoroughly examined in a new round-robin test. Eight laboratories participated in this study and three types of sweating manikins were used. Six clothing ensembles including body mapping cycling wear, light summer workwear, typical spring and autumn clothing for people living in subtropical regions, cold protective clothing and functional Gore-Tex coverall were selected. The measurement repeatability and reproducibility are analysed.... (More)
