Influence of dynamics of sweating on rectal temperature increase was tested in 3 groups of men performing cycle exercise with intensity of 65, 90 and 120 W, respectively, in 22 degrees C chamber temperature and 30% of relative air humidity. During exercise at 65 and 90 W the subjects wore suits while exercising with intensity of 120 W they wore only shorts. The dynamics of sweating was described by delay in onset of sweating and time constant of the reaction. Wearing caused significant increase in skin humidity and decreased evaporative rate of sweating. Sweat rate during steady state was related to the metabolic rate in naked (r = 0.89, p less than 0.002) as well as in wearing subjects (r = 0.93, p less than 0.01). Delay in onset of sweating was, in average, 5 min with a time constant of 7 min. Both factors showed a tendency to be shorter with increasing work intensity. Mean increase in rectal temperature was proportional to the intensity of exercise although the individual delta Tre correlated well with the dynamics of sweating in naked (r = 0.83, p less than 0.01) and wearing subjects (r = 0.84, p less than 0.01). Since delta Tre was smaller in subjects with shorter inertia time of sweating in response to beginning of exercise at the same intensity it is concluded that the dynamics of sweating can play an important role in limiting body temperature increase in working men.
