Abstract
Air gap available between the clothing and human body provides significant thermal insulation and hence enhances the protective performance of clothing. A numerical model of fluid motion and heat transfer through the air gap is proposed in this work. The most realistic and detailed model considered in this work shows better accuracy than the previous models and brings several new insights to the combined heat transfer phenomena. Effect of...
