In order to make it possible to measure the clo value in various postures, we are studying the measurement method using the human body. Our previous researches showed that clo value measured with the human body is less than that measured with a “constant temperature control”-type thermal manikin. In our previous experiments, human body changes its skin temperature in response to the amount of clothing or changes in the temperature to maintain heat loss, while a “constant temperature control”-type thermal manikin changes its heat loss in response to the temperature or amount of clothing. Human body reaction is similar to “constant heat dissipation” -type thermal manikin. In order to improve the clo value measurement method using the human body, clo value of same clothing by thermal manikin which changed control method to “constant temperature” and “constant heat dissipation” were measured. Relational expressions of thermal insulation of clothes measured by different control methods were shown.
