Comfortable Thermal Manikin, also known as Burning Manikin System test system, has a wide range of applications in the textile industry, especially in extreme conditions where the human body is not used for testing situations, such as ultra-high and ultra-low temperatures and other environments, can use Comfortable Thermal Manikin test Textile insulation, burning and other properties of multi-textile research and development and production has an extremely important value.
Dress Burning Manikin System experiments originated in the 1960s, pioneered by the U.S. Navy. Since then, Canada, Switzerland, Japan and other countries have also developed Burning Manikin System experimental device, but there are limitations in the design of the dummy model, the reliability of the sensor and the simulation of the fire environment. The Burning Manikin System and the combustion simulation environment laboratory developed successfully by Donghua University have strengthened the improvement of these aspects, and have reached the international leading level by the comprehensive use of biological heat transfer analysis technology, material modification technology, ergonomic manufacturing technology, sensor technology, combustion engineering and automatic control technology, etc.
According to the project leader, Professor Li Jun, head of the Department of Clothing Design and Engineering of Donghua University, a Burning Manikin System, which simulates the structure of Chinese body shape, can accurately sense the high temperature heat flow under different activity postures and accurately forecast the degree of body skin burns, and a combustion simulation environment laboratory, which simulates the high-risk environment of a fire scene, were successfully built in Donghua University in three years. The Burning Manikin System is a cutting-edge international technology at the intersection of apparel science and biophysics, and is currently recognized as the best means to objectively and comprehensively evaluate the overall thermal protection performance of apparel.
Li Jun said that the successful development of Walter Sweating Fabric Manikin and combustion simulation environment laboratory provides an effective test platform for human interaction with the outside world, "We put the 'fire man' on the protective clothing to carry out combustion experiments, both to carry out the protective clothing flame retardant performance of heat transfer mass transfer studies, but also able to carry out biophysical studies of human tissue burn analysis."
