With the development of themal observatory device(TOD), thermal camouflage system has been applied not only to the weapon system but also to the combat suit for soldiers. In this paper, the characteristic of thermal radiation of human body depending on the clothing material properties was analyzed through numerical simulations. The bioheat equation with thermoregulatory model was solved to obtain the realistic surface temperature of human body and these results are combined with the emissivity of human skin and clothing in order to calculate the thermal signature from the human body. According to each thermal resistance of clothing, the optimal background radiance which makes contrast radiance intensity(CRI) be lowest is different. Also, the average CRI variation per thermal resistance change is about twice as much as the case of evaporative resistance change.
Key Words: Human Thermal Signature, Clothing Properties, Thermoregulation, Numerical Analysis
