The course presents scientific principles for characterization and development of comfortable and/or protective textiles and clothing.  Properties associated with human tactile response, thermal comfort and heat stress are emphasized.  Inherent issues of balancing comfort versus protection are illustrated by research studies on performance garments or protective clothing systems.  Methods and standards for evaluating comfort and protective performance range from bench level instruments to system level tests for ensembles using instrumented manikins, human clothing wear trials, and physiological tests. Protection from mechanical, thermal, chemical and ballistic threats are addressed, and the key role of standards is discussed.
