Abstract

In this paper a method to measure the moisture (water vapor) conductivity of clothing is proposed. The method is based on the wet cup method, which is often used for building materials. The proposed method overcomes the difficulty of applying the wet cup method to thin and air-permeable material like cloth by determining the surface moisture transfer resistances at both sides of cloth gravimetrically. Measured results on cotton cloth are shown.
