• Development of a bioheat model for older people under hot and cold exposures

    1 month ago - By Springer

    Abstract
    Physiological modeling is important to evaluate the effects of heat and cold conditions on people's thermal comfort and health. Experimental studies have found that older people undergo age-related weakening changes in their physiology and thermoregulatory activities, which makes them more vulnerable to heat or cold exposure than average aged young adults. However, addressing the age-related changes by modeling has been challenging due to their wide variability among the older population. This study develops a two-node physiological model to predict the thermal response of older...
