Abstract: Previous simulations associated with the heat and moisture transfer behaviors of clothing are mainly expressed by mathematical models, relevant computational algorithms and numerical solution methods and only can be used by a few professionals in the field. A software platform, called the S-smart system, were designed and developed as a friendly computer aided design tool with user friendly interfaces for users with little/limited background knowledge on the technical information, complex physics, mathematics and computational techniques. The purpose of this study is to report a simulation test for predicting the thermal functional performance of personal protective clothing using the S-smart system. The results regarding the skin temperature, core temperature and the humidity in the clothing microclimate between the chest wall and underwear were compared with experimental data. Good agreement, both the trends of changes and overall mean values, is observed between the two. Furthermore, 2D and 3D visualizations of the S-smart system can provide more evidences to explain the heat and moisture transfer mechanisms and predict thermal functional performance of clothing.
