Abstract
The objective of this study was to evaluate whether Heat Flux Transducers (HFT's) attached to the human body provide a true value of sensible heat loss, i.e. the combined heat loss by radiation and convection. 24 HFT's were attached to the body surface of a subject who was subsequently exposed consecutively to five climatic conditions in a whole-body human calorimeter. Three subjects were employed. The report consists of three parts: Calibrations, Comparison of the two methods, and Reduction of the number of HFT's.
