Cold Weather Clothing for Children: Thermal Insulation and Temperature Ratings
- KSU Instructions for Manikin Cold Weather Clothing Tests.docx
- KSU Submission Form for Cold Weather Clothing.docx
ASTM F 1291 "Standard Test Method for Measuring the Thermal Insulation of Clothing Using a Heated Manikin" modified using child-size manikin
Child thermal manikin (boy’s size 8) in an environmental chamber
$600 for 3 replications on one set of garments
Heat transfer models based on children’s physiology at different ages are used with the insulation value to determine the temperature ratings for comfort at different activity levels. No additional charge for these calculations.
