Abstract

Assuring the thermal stability of the human body is one of the most important functions of the clothing, especially for sportswear, casual wear and underwear. Knitted fabrics not only posses stretch and provide freedom of movement, but they also good handle, high level of clothing comfort and easily transmit vapor from the body. In this paper, the influence of cotton knitted structure on the thermal comfort properties was investigated. The thermal properties of knitted fabrics based single jersey, 1x1 rib and interlock structures were measured using method of Boc. The results indicate that each knitted structure tends to yield rather different thermal comfort properties. Interlock and 1x1 rib fabrics have a high thermal conductivity. On the other hand, single jersey fabrics have lower water vapor and air permeability values than 1x1 and interlock fabrics and give a warmer feeling based on lower thermal absorptivity values. Keywords: cotton knitted fabric, thermal comfort, thermal conductivity, thermal absorptivity, thermal resistance, water vapour and air permeability References:
