Abstract in Undetermined

An interlaboratory study on measurement of evaporative resistance (Ret) with thermal manikins has been conducted in order to assess the repeatability and reproducibility limits as a function of mean resistance values, when using similar test protocols (ASTM F2370). Three independent laboratories tested seven clothing ensembles, with Ret ranging from very low to very high values (20-325 m2∙Pa/W). The repeatability and the reproducibility limits were found to vary in the ranges 3-15% and 12-24%, respectively, for ensembles with a Ret value up to 60 m2∙Pa/W. These parameters escalated to 21-27% and 51-53%, for ensembles with higher Ret (110-325 m2∙Pa/W). The high relative error in the measurements of... (More)

The high relative error in the measurements of local manikin heat losses was found to play a relevant role, particularly for the most impermeable samples. (Less)
