Abstract

The existing models cannot simulate the heat transfer process of Chinese human body accurately. The paper focused on the geometric model of the human heat transfer process. To study the differences in the heat transfer process between Chinese and other foreign human body, the body geometric characteristics had been analyzed. Based on pilots’ anthropometric data, a geometric model of human sitting posture applied to the study of thermal environment in the cockpit was established. Besides, the thermal effect of food, the size, and location of viscera had taken into account in building the geometric model. Finally, a geometric model of the human body with ellipsoid head and ellipsoid cylinders of other parts was established. This model provides a more realistic geometric model of human heat transfer.
