|Age||age_||An age of the person.
If not supplied, default value of 35 will be used.
1 or "male"
2 or "female"

|Clothing Insulation||clothingInsulation_||Clothing insulation of a person in "clo" units.
It ranges from 0 (nude person) to 4 (polar outfit).
Overall clo value can be determined by adding individual clo values for each type of clothes, based on a clo values table ( http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/clo-clothing-thermal-insulation-d_732.html )
A more simplified approch would be:
0.20 - very light summer clothes (shorts/skirt, t-shirt, slippers, no socks)
0.55 - summer clothes (light trousers, short sleeves or blouse)
1 - street-business suit or Typical indoor winter clothing
1.5 - suit and cotton coat
2 - winter suit and coat
2.58 - firefighting clothes
4 - heavy polar outfit (fur pants, coat, hood, gloves...)
If not supplied it will be caclulated for each hour based on air temperature, with minimal 0.5 and maximal 4.1 clo values.
|Clothing Albedo||clothingAlbedo_||Average clothing and skin albedo of a person.
Ranges from 0 to 100%. In theory clothes-skin albedo of 0 would absorb, while 100% will reflect all solar radiation.
Some of the examples:
light colored (white and bright clothes) - 57 %
dark colored (black and gray clothes) - 21 %
medium colored (any clothes colors between upper two) - 37 %
protective polyethylene/aluminium suits - 95 %
If not supplied 37% (medium colored) will be used as a default.
|Acclimated||acclimated_||Determine whether the test person had previously experienced heat/cold stress.
"acclimated" or True if person in subject is acclimatized,
"unacclimated" or False if it's not.
If no value is supplied, True (acclimated) will be used by default.||Goo|

|Activity Duration||activityDuration_||Duration of the activity sequence.
It should not be lower than 180 minutes (3 hours) and it should be dividable with 60 (meaning only full hour values are accepted: 180, 240, 300, 360, 420, 480, 540 ...)
