Modeling Heat Transfer of the Air Gap between Human Body and Clothing
An unsteady-state heat transfer numerical model of the microclimate between human skin and clothing is set up. Air-gap thickness less than 17mm is considered. Matlab pde toolbox is chosen to compute the numerical model. The numerical results of the model agrees well with a set of published experimental data.
