  • Publication number: 20230142369
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes a multimodal adaptive textile with moisture-responsive flaps composed of a nylon/metal heterostructure, which can simultaneously regulate convection, sweat evaporation, and mid-infrared emission to accomplish heat transfer tuning in response to human perspiration vapor. A metal layer contributes to low-emissivity radiative heating and enhances the bimorph actuation performance. The multimodal adaptive mechanism expands the thermal comfort zone compared to traditional static textiles and single-modal adaptive textiles without any electricity or energy input.
