Novel device for evaluating sweat evaporation characteristics of woven and knitted fabrics

Raja, D ; Senthilkumar, M ; Mani, K


This study investigates the sweat evaporation characteristics such as drying time, drying rate and drying capacity of textile fabrics objectively using novel device. The device works under the load cell principle. Using this novel device, sweat evaporation characteristics of different textile fabrics with different relative humidity have been investigated. The relationship between the new test method results and the manual test results shows good correlation.
