Abstract
The thermal resistance of the Canadian Forces chemically protective suit was measured from the heat loss of human subjects experiencing cold stress. The results are consistent with a simple calculation based on the measured resistances of the fabric layers and the estimated values for internal and external still air layers. No convective cooling attributable to body motion was observed although the exercise rate was low (walking at 2 km/hr).
