Abstract : The thermal resistance of the air layers in clothing which allows air to permeate through it was investigated. The method described for calculating the thermal resistance of air-permeable articles making allowance for the thermal resistance of the air layer yields results close to the experimental ones. This makes possible the reliable design of heat protective clothing for any given conditions of work or climate.
