Paper Title:
Numerical Simulation of Heat and Moisture Transfer in System of Human-Clothing with Phase Change Materials-Environment
  Abstract

A model of heat and moisture transfer in human-clothing with PCM-environment system is developed. In the model, the improved 25-node model is used for simulating human thermo- regulation, and the coupled heat and moisture model is applied to the PCM’s clothing. The model predictions and experimental data are compared. Also, the influences of the PCM on human skin temperature and sweat accumulation are predicted. The results are helpful to design of thermal functional clothing.
