A 3D thermal model to analyze the temperature changes of digits during cold stress and predict the danger of frostbite in human fingers.

Abstract

The existing computational models of frostbite injury are limited to one and two dimensional schemes. In this study, a coupled thermo-fluid model is applied to simulate a finger exposed to cold weather. The spatial variability of finger-tip temperature is compared to experimental ones to validate the model. A semi-realistic 3D model for tissue and blood… (More)
