||Some design recommendations to improve comfort in helmets: A case study from China
||Dec. 1996, Vol.25, No.2, p.145-154. Illus. 12 ref.
||Hotness, weight and fitting problems are major wearability issues that require improvements in safety helmets. The need for an optimally designed helmet in China prompted a case study on comfort aspects in helmets. The subjective impressions of the wearers of test helmets provided useful information for design changes to improve comfort. Heat transfer measurements through helmets indicated the need for ventilation openings to be provided on the shell of plastic helmets. Due to the advantage of low weight and good ventilation, it is recommended that cane helmets be further developed to improve protection, wearability and durability, and eventually for large scale production. Topics: case study; comfort assessment; comfort criteria; design of equipment; heat transfer; safety helmets; subjective assessment; thermal comfort.
