To create a glove that will generate heat to help keep one’s hand warm in a cold environment
All wire diameters are ~40mm
*R for wire wrapped around a finger
**R for wire after work-hardening
My hand feels warm, stop recording
At what temperature is your hand comfortable?
Tested 10 subjects
Blends of Polyester/Cotton
Power Generated From Glove: 2rLq=2L(T1-T3)/R = 1.73 W
L/R = 0.018 W/K
Power lost using 100P* under conditions previously modeled: 2.7 W
Polyethylene Glycol (PEG)
PURPOSE: To prevent leakage from glove when PCM melts.
Successfully produced both paraffin and octadecane microspheres.
Octadecane in PDMS
PEG in PE
