In this study, three thermal problems have been examined which occur in the design of space suits to be used when personnel are outside the parent vehicle. The first concerns the time-temperature variation of an infinite thermal conductivity suit exposed to extreme conditions of heating and cooling. The second is related to temperature differences which may occur from the top to the bottom of the suit, thereby causing physiological discomfort. Finally, the scheme was examined whereby these temperature differences might be ameliorated by circulating a fluid in passages behind the suit material.
