The primary aim of this project is to develop a computational model to predict the thermal performance of a clothed human by considering the clothing pumping effect in the human-clothing-environment (HCE) system, through which the thermal physiological response and pumping effect can be can simulate simultaneously. The secondary aim is to compare the simulation results predicted by the optimized model, either considering the pumping effect or not, with the results in a physiological experiment conducted by human participants in terms of different thermal responses, including core temperatures and mean skin temperature. This project also aims to develop and refine simulation algorithms for evaluating the thermal comfort performance of a clothed human, and to investigate the effects of different clothing designs, styles and materials on human thermal comfort under various environmental conditions, both at rest and during physical activity.
