The thermal properties of fabric are an important factor in the understanding of the thermo-physiological comfort of clothing. In this work a method is developed for the determination of thermal conductivity of plain woven fabric. A special core spun yarn used as weft yarn in poly-viscose fabric and other two simple plain weave cotton and wool fabric were used. Temperature specified boundary conditions were applied for the determination of effective thermal conductivity of fabric based on the developed geometrical model.
