Thermal manikin history and applications

Holmér, Ingvar LU (2004) 5th International Manikin and Modelling Meeting In European Journal of Applied Physiology 92(6). p.614-618
Abstract
Thermal manikins have served research and development purposes for more than 60 years. They are widely used for analysing the thermal interface of the human body and its environment. Particular applications are found in the determination of thermal properties of clothing and in the evaluation of the local body-heat fluxes in complex environments such as in a vehicle cabin. Recent developments of sweating manikins as well as breathing manikins allow even more realistic simulations of the human thermal interaction with the environment.
