Standard Test Method for Measuring the Evaporative Resistance of Clothing Using a Sweating Manikin
This test method can be used to quantify and compare the evaporative resistance provided by different clothing systems. The evaporative resistance values for ensembles measured under isothermal conditions can be used in models that predict the physiological responses of people in different environmental conditions.
It describes the measurement of the resistance to evaporative heat transfer from a heated sweating thermal manikin to a relatively calm environment. It specifies the configuration of sweating thermal manikin, test protocol, and test conditions.
