Barnett, Jonathan R.
This project improved upon an ongoing project at WPI which uses an instrumental mannequin to rank firefighting clothing. The project included the design and creation of copper slug calorimeters to measure heat flux, improvement of the data acquisition system, installation of a smoother multi-speed motor and the introduction of a flow controller into the propane lines. The mannequin was instrumented with copper slug calorimeters, outfitted in firefighting clothing and run through the compartment to test the performance of the gear.
