Abstract: Conducting field work in cold temperature was a difficult task. The most important safety consideration for field work was to maintain normal body temperature and the proper flexibility of the hand. Heat production and insulation was done through multiple thin layers needed for different temperature and activity level. This work had been focused on the design and fabrication of gloves with minimum thickness and minimum heat loss. The multilayered construction is 44% thinner and 17.5% lighter than the existing materials.
Keywords: Multilayered Construction, Heat Loss, Insulation, Dexterity, Thermal Insulation.
Scope of the Article: Construction Economics.
