Excessive heat at the foot-shoe sole interface negatively affects a human's thermal comfort. An understanding of the thermal behavior at this interface is important for alleviating this discomfort. During gait motion, a human's body weight cyclically compresses a shoe sole (commonly constructed of viscoelastic materials), generating heat during loading. To evaluate the thermal effects of this internal heat generation on foot comfort, we developed and empirically validated a thermal analysisdoi:10.3390/proceedings2060278 fatcat:s2udbcnhl5bcxjju2oqyrwsbfu
