This report will focus on the thermal tests by using a manikin under different radiant conditions with different outer clothing together with different wind speeds. This relates to the research Question 1.5 formulated in the project:– What is the interaction effect of short wave radiation with wind on protective clothing in relation to the reflectivity of the garment material? It expands on the research on Question 1.2 (Havenith et al. 2005) where similar measurements were done at a single wind speed. A total of four Nomex outer garments have been tested for radiation experiments under different radiation levels of no, medium and high radiation, combined with four wind speeds of 0.5, 1.0, 2.0 and 5.0 m/s.
