A mathematical model of finite element method to study radial heat regulation in human limbs
Sonia Shivhare, Renu Jain
We consider this paper as the one-dimensional bio-heat transfer equation with the perfusion of blood, dependent on temperature which governs physiological heat distribution problems pertaining to limbs and the biological properties are supposed to be different along the radial direction. By means of a comprehensive method with figurative calculation, we obtain the exact analytical solution to examine the heat distribution in the tissues. The dermal region is made up of three layers, namely epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous tissues. The model incorporates significant variations of physical and physiological parameters like blood mass flow rate, rate of metabolic heat generation, and thermal conductivity in each layer. Numerical results have been obtained for various cases of practical interest.
