Using the TPS-EFF, companies can determine how clothing may feel during a work-out or long-exposure to the elements.

For athletic wear, sweat wicking creates the desired cool feel that allow athletes to push their limits; This effect can measure first touch under different levels of humidity for 2 and 10 seconds. Formal or everyday apparel can use effusivity to determine ideal materials that transfer heat better when layering.

A sample of generic athletic wear was compared to a sample of fabric designed to have superior moisture-wicking properties. The samples were measured using TPS-EFF (Transient Plane Source-Effusivity) at different moisture levels.

In this experiment, the thermal effusivity of two fabric samples were measured at varying moisture levels using TPS-EFF for a touch time of 2 seconds. Higher levels of moisture mean higher water saturation in the fabric. Therefore, measurements at higher levels of moisture should yield higher effusivity values compared to thermal measurements when the fabric is dry.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”View more information” style=”classic” color=”black” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fthermaleffusivity.com%2Fmeasuring-thermal-effusivity-vs-moisture-with-tps-eff%2F|title:Measuring%20Thermal%20Effusivity%20vs%20Moisture%20with%20TPS-EFF||”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row el_class=”container”][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”189″ img_size=”full” el_id=”circle”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
