Abstract

A Human-Clothing-Environment (HCE) simulator is a representative to measure a role of the multilayered garment system. As installing a pumping system, which causes artificial flutter in clothing, on HCE, it is also able to evaluate pumping, bellow, and chimney effects by using a wet and dry fabric. In particular, it is possible to observe convection between a clothing and skin through a pumping effect, generated from the system. Two types of the fabrics are tested by HCE including a pumping system. While temperature in microclimate is almost not changed, relative humidity significantly decreased.
