Human Thermal Modeling

Human thermal modeling with TAIThermBased on established models, the Human Thermal Extension is a state-of-the-art segmental model that operates within our thermal analysis software to provide a comprehensive simulation of human thermoregulation under transient and asymmetrical environmental conditions. All thermoregulatory responses are computed locally based on environmental conditions, clothing, body percentile, and activity level. 

  • Blood flow
  • Respiration
  • Shivering/sweating
  • Conductive contact

Thermal Applications

Human thermal applications include architectural analysis; passenger compartment design for vehicles, trains, and aircraft; firefighter safety equipment; and advanced materials for clothing systems. The thermal safety of aircraft pilots and passengers can be examined under extreme environments. 

  • Protective clothing simulation
  • HVAC optimization
  • Window placement studies
  • Localized building design
  • Heated and cooled seats
  • Human effectiveness and safety
