Title: 3D human thermoregulation model: Bioheat transfer in tissues and small vessels
Issue Date: 2014
Abstract: There are several models that can predict human physiological response to heat and cold environment. However there are only a few models that simulate and predict the temperature distribution all over the body, considering the individual differences and transient conditions. The main goal of this study is to present part of a whole body, three-dimensional thermoregulation model that simulates biological heat transfer in tissues and small vessels. The development of the 3D model begins by solving the bioheat equation in one dimension and then adapting it to a more complex problem. The final 3D model test shows that the model behaves as expected.
