The thermoneutral zone: implications for metabolic studies.
A thermoneutral environment is important for many human physiological studies. The thermoneutral zone (TNZ) is defined as the range of ambient temperatures without regulatory changes in metabolicExpand

Validation of an individualised model of human thermoregulation for predicting responses to cold air
Most computer models of human thermoregulation are population based. Here, we individualised the Fiala model [Fiala et al. (2001) Int J Biometeorol 45:143–159] with respect to anthropometrics, bodyExpand

The impact of morning light intensity and environmental temperature on body temperatures and alertness
Indoor temperature and light exposure are known to affect body temperature, productivity and alertness of building occupants. However, not much is known about the interaction between light andExpand

Thermal sensation: a mathematical model based on neurophysiology.
UNLABELLED Thermal sensation has a large influence on thermal comfort, which is an important parameter for building performance. Understanding of thermal sensation may benefit from incorporating theExpand

Hybrid method coupling molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo simulations to study the properties of gases in microchannels and nanochannels.
We combine molecular dynamics (MD) and Monte Carlo (MC) simulations to study the properties of gas molecules confined between two hard walls of a microchannel or nanochannel. The coupling between MDExpand

Density distribution for a dense hard-sphere gas in micro/nano-channels: Analytical and simulation results
TLDR
We study the properties of a hard-sphere dense gas near the hard walls of micro and nano-channels. Expand

Cold-induced vasoconstriction at forearm and hand skin sites: the effect of age
During mild cold exposure, elderly are at risk of hypothermia. In humans, glabrous skin at the hands is well adapted as a heat exchanger. Evidence exists that elderly show equal vasoconstriction dueExpand

Incorporating neurophysiological concepts in mathematical thermoregulation models
Skin blood flow (SBF) is a key player in human thermoregulation during mild thermal challenges. Various numerical models of SBF regulation exist. However, none explicitly incorporates theExpand

Numerical simulation of deformations and electrical potentials in a cartilage substitute.
Cartilage exhibits a swelling and shrinking behaviour that influences the function of the cells inside the tissue. This behaviour is caused by mechanical, chemical and electrical loads. It isExpand
