    Abstract

    A 65-node thermoregulation model was developed, based on the Stolwijk model. The model has 16 body segments corresponding to a thermal manikin, each consisting of four layers for the core, muscle, fat, and skin. The 65th node in the model is the central blood compartment, which exchanges convective heat with all other nodes via the blood flow. Convective and radiant heat transfer coefficients and clothing insulation were derived from thermal manikin experiments. A thermoregulation model combined with a radiation exchange model and Computational Fluid Dynamics is proposed. The comprehensive simulation method is described.
