Gray Cluster Analysis on Thermal-Moisture Comfort of Bamboo Fiber Socks

Abstract:

Article Preview

8 kinds of blended knitted socks with different materials of nylon filament, bamboo and cotton fibers are taken as research objectives with a view to investigating the thermal-moisture comfort of bamboo fiber socks. The sense of well-being, thermal conductivity, moisture regain, water vapor permeability, wicking height and air permeability of the socks are tested, and the thermal-moisture comfort of socks with different fiber contents are studied. By using the gray cluster analysis, the integrated evaluation of thermal-moisture comfort of the socks is conducted. The results shows that the socks containing bamboo fibers have better warm-retention and water vapor transmission properties, their thermal-moisture comfort are better than that of nylon filament and cotton fibers in summer.
