CITEVE apresenta inovações na 7ª Conferência Europeia de Vestuário de Proteção
O CITEVE marcou presença na 7th European Conference on Protective Clothing, que decorreu entre os dias 23 e 25 de maio, na cidade de Izmir, na Turquia, que se debruçou sobre os temas da segurança e proteção das pessoas em ambientes de risco.

Gilda Santos, do CITEVE, integrou o painel de apresentações orais deste certame de referência com a divulgação de trabalhos de desenvolvimento inovadores na área militar, nomeadamente "Ergonomic Textile Camouflage Solution for Military Soldiers" e "Specification of Human Subjects and Field Trials Protocols for Smart Acclimatization Textile Systems".

Já no espaço dedicado à apresentação de posters oportunidade para a disseminação de estudos efetuados, pelo CITEVE e parceiros, nas áreas militar ("Feasibility Study of Innovative Military Protection Textile System" e "Proposal for Adequate evaluation Techniques of Smart Acclimatization Textile Systems") e da proteção ("Development of a Multifunctional Suit for Wildland and Structural Firefighting" e "Ecological Dyeing & Finishing Process of Protective Comfortable Wool").

Abaixo apresentam-se curtos excertos dos "abstracts" das apresentações orais e posters em questão (em inglês, tal como os originais).

  • "ERGONOMIC TEXTILE CAMOUFLAGE SOLUTION FOR MILITARY SOLDIERS"
    Gilda Santos, Ana Barros e Augusta Silva (CITEVE), Patrícia Ferreira (Damel)

    Military protective clothing provides vital functions but also add physiological loads that could contribute to a progressive decline in physical and mental capacity of the soldiers, which consequently could lower their productivity and performance to variable extents. Therefore, the clothing impacts on comfort and soldier's performance are of particular importance [1].
    This study focuses on the development of an innovative ergonomic clothing system for soldiers.

  • "SPECIFICATION OF HUMAN SUBJECTS AND FIELD TRIALS PROTOCOLS FOR SMART ACCLIMATIZATION TEXTILE SYSTEMS"
    Gilda Santos, Cristina Oliveira e Ana Barros (CITEVE), Patrícia Ferreira (Damel)
    The impact of clothing on comfort and performance of soldiers is of particular importance. However, the analysis of current evaluation methods for comfort and ergonomics of smart acclimatization textile systems (SATS), for hot and cold environments, reveals a gap in comfort and ergonomics assessment [1].
    This study focused on specification of human subjects and field trials protocols for comfort and ergonomics evaluation of SATS.

  • "DEVELOPMENT OF A MULTIFUNCTIONAL SUIT FOR WILDLAND AND STRUCTURAL FIREFIGHTING"
    Gilda Santos e Ana Barros (CITEVE)
    Firefighters come across a range of hazards during structural as well as wildland firefighting. The hazards can cause minor injuries to fatal accidents leading to the end of career or even death of firefighters [1]. Thus, the use of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) it's of real importance in this field. However, the world of firefighting PPE has become complex and expensive [2].
    In response to this current difficulty and taking into account the firefighter's needs, a Consortium composed by five Portuguese companies and coordinated by CITEVE developed a multifunctional suit for wildland and structural firefighting.

  • "ECOLOGICAL DYEING & FINISHING PROCESS OF PROTECTIVE COMFORTABLE WOOL"
    Gilda Santos, Ana Barros, Augusta Silva e Rosa Maria Silva (CITEVE), Helena Magalhães e  Manuel Pinheiro (Tinamar)
    Burns from clothing fires are a significant cause of injury and death. The most important parameter in assessing the flammability of a textile is fibre type. Of the commonly used textile fibres (cotton, rayon, polyester, acrylic and nylon), wool is widely recognised as the most flame resistant [1].
    This study focuses on an innovative ecological finishing process of wool.

  • "PROPOSAL FOR ADEQUATE EVALUATION TECHNIQUES OF SMART ACCLIMATIZATION TEXTILE SYSTEMS"
    Gilda Santos, Cristina Oliveira e Ana Barros (CITEVE), Patrícia Ferreira (Damel)

    All clothing design for military use has the multi-purpose of protecting the soldier and enabling him to function effectively, while at the same time maintaining the comfort within a range that maximizes physical, cognitive or other performances on the battlefield [1].
    This study focused the activities/steps involved in the definition and development of suitable methods for evaluation of comfort and ergonomics of smart acclimatization textile systems (smart clothing with active thermoregulatory systems for stabilization of soldier's body temperature in cold and hot environments), in laboratorial and operational environments.

  • "FEASIBILITY STUDY OF INNOVATIVE MILITARY PROTECTION TEXTILE SYSTEM"
    Gilda Santos, Cristina Oliveira e Ana Barros (CITEVE), Patrícia Ferreira (Damel)
    New combat equipment for dismounted soldier development requires the combination of competences in properties of advanced materials and components, military requirements, system integration, evaluation and industrial production cost calculation. For this reason, a feasibility study carried out prior to a large-scale definitive project is of crucial importance.
    Extremes of heat, cold and reduced metabolic heat dissipation due to insulating clothing can seriously put soldier's life at risk, reducing their performance and compromising the mission success. This document summarise the activities and results of the EDA (European Defence Agency) ACCLITEXSYS project.
