Abstract
A round-robin test of procedures for assessing certain textile properties has been proposed as part of a TTCP-PTP3 effort to facilitate the exchange of data between countries using different apparatuses. The objective of that study, Operating Assignment 9, is to determine whether values of thermal conductivity and water-vapour permeability of various fabrics are comparable when measured on two different apparatuses: the CORD Sweating Hot Plate (used by Australia and Canada) and the Hoenstein Sweating Hot Plate (used by the United Kingdom and the United States). Several fabric samples were submitted for independent testing by various nations. The work presented here is an alternative measure to the sweating hot plate approach for determining the relevant material properties. The two apparatuses used in this investigation were specifically designed to measure thermal conductivity and water-vapour permeability and should thus provide an accurate benchmark for comparison of the other methods.
