Evaluation of a single-reading heat stress instrument.
NIOSH 1975 Mar; :1-17
Evaluation is made of a heat stress instrument which integrates radiation, wet bulb and dry bulb temperature, air velocity and a simulation of metabolic rate into a single output reading. Test results are discussed and recommendations made regarding heat stress instrumentation development. Preliminary evaluation indicates the instrument is not suitable for field heat stress measurements.
