The Development of a 2-Dimensional Human Thermal Model 2002-01-2540

This paper gives an overview for a new human thermal model. A compromise between simplicity and accuracy when developing the new thermal model is determined. The human thermal model incorporates 2-dimensional (radial and angular) heat transfer along with arterial and venous countercurrent blood flow. In addition, this thermal model attempts to model the human digits in order to predict toe and fingertip temperatures that are of special interest in regards to possibility of controlling the thermal comfort of a subject.
