Human Thermal Modeling
Based 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
- Conductive contact
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.
