Original Abstract

The use of protective clothing under extreme conditions leads to heat stress with undesired consequences on human physiology. For this purpose, the thermal indices and the thermophysiological models have been developed, like for example Fiala-based thermophysiological model, called FMTK. In terms of anthropometry and physiology, the model was originally developed for an average man, which can lead to problems with the prediction of heat stress for people who do not meet this definition. This article deals with the sensitivity study of FMTK model to weight, body fat content, and skin area. Results are compared with predicted values for averaged man and the relevance study of individualization for different ambient temperatures is presented.
