The aim of that study is to make a database of the local convective heat transfer coefficients for each part of a human body in sedentary and standing environments through the use of an experimental thermal manikin and an analysis of the radiative heat transfer rate. The results are applicable to both indoor and outdoor environments.

The paper also discusses the influences of wind velocity, sensible heat loss, posture and furniture arrangements on local convective heat transfer coefficients values.
