In the case of moderate climates, convective and radiative heat exchanges are the main avenues for heat losses on a human body. When using a dummy it is sometimes difficult to have a good estimation of the heat transfer coefficients for convection and/or radiation and especially to determine the part of each mode. It is now quite easy to calculate radiative transfer with accuracy. The approach proposed here, is to find a better estimation of the local radiative heat transfer through modeling and to discuss the value of local radiative coefficients in different situations.
