Textile applications for the cooling of motorcycle helmets.
This research will investigate the effectiveness of the use of advanced fabrics in the design of an interlayer between the scalp and the helmet lining to control the temperature inside the helmet. Fibre microstructure configurations and fibre treatments will be examined for ability to assist in the conduction of heat from the scalp. The application of this research is to be of considerable benefit to motorcycle riders in South East Asia and tropical regions.
