|Title:||Effect of composition of knitted fabrics on their cooling efficiency at simulated sweating|
|Keywords:||Cooling efficiency;Heat flow;Knitted fabric;Skin model;Single jersey fabric;Wet textiles|
|Abstract:||Cooling efficiency of selected underwear knits in the simulated condition of fabric wetting by means of single sweating pulse has been experimentally investigated. The method is based on non-traditional use of the small skin model Permetest with a very short time of measurement. Cooling efficiency has been calculated as the product of cooling heat flow and wet area after application of 0.5 mL of water on the fabric surface to simulate the sweating impulse. It is found that the highest cooling level is exhibited by the knitted fabrics containing polyester filaments with grooved surface, which conducts the liquid moisture along the fabric plane.|
