Abstract

This paper presents a theoretical study on the optimization of key material parameters of multilayer clothing assemblies for thermal comfort in cold climate. A mathematical model of heat and moisture transfer through a multilayer clothing assembly is established. The existence and uniqueness of the solution of the model are verified by using the fixed point theorem. The model predicts the optimum thicknesses and porosities of the two internal layers of the clothing assembly, with which the thermal comfort index will fall within the required intervals with the greatest probability. This study is significant for the optimum design of multilayer clothing assembly for thermal comfort.
