AbstractThe purpose of this report is to describe the work done so far on the design of a portable water-flow air calorimeter being developed to serve as a standard calibration tool for thermal manikins. The intent of creating a standard calibration is to establish a means of comparison between thermal manikins so that they may be considered as a substitute for human testing in evaluating safety and survival equipment regulations for ships operating in the Arctic.
