Meanwhile, results showed that the skin temperature for both those areas that either did or did not have hair, increased as the THI increased, and reached 35[degrees]C at THI 80.
Increased air velocities on the skin surface increases convection heat coefficient which in turn increases heat loss while decreasing the skin temperature.

Autogenic training session was most effective in showing a statistically significant change in decreased respiratory and pulse rates and increased peripheral skin temperature.
The nonuniformity in the radiation field characteristic of the radiative heating system affected the transient skin temperature change of various body parts differently, and therefore resulted in different transient overall thermal comfort.
The upper-extremity skin temperature was controlled in a small bandwidth (29-31.
The relative humidity is an important environmental parameter since the skin temperature is partly determined by the convective heat transfer coefficient.
