Abstract
The document is the final report on research into wind penetration of clothing carried out under a research contract between Carleton University and Department of National Defence. The research was mainly experimental. A six inch diameter heated cylinder covered with model clothing systems was tested in a wind tunnel. The model clothing systems consisted of permeable fabrics covering constant-thickness air or batting layers. The majority of the test runs were for batting/fabric clothing systems. Wind speed, fabric permeability, batting permeability and batting-layer thickness were systematically varied. Local temperatures, heat fluxes and static pressures were measured. Heat transfer coefficients were determined from the data. The static pressure data support the validity of the simple flow model formulated to describe the behaviour of the penetrating air flow. A computer analysis for prediction of the heat transfer coefficients was formulated under a previous contract. TRUNCATED
